The Dutchman of Red Bull in Japan, between the World Championship in sight and the FIA investigation on the possible overrun of the accounts: “It’s something that concerns the team, I just take care to do my job on the track, then we’ll see on Monday”

Verstappen is clear on this issue, which sees his team in the sights of Mercedes and Ferrari for the performance implications that a budget overrun can entail. “The speculations on the Budget Cap do not bother me: it is a matter for the team, I can only concentrate on driving – says the Dutchman of the Red Bull -. I can not add anything else, let’s wait for Monday”.

Winning the title here would be special, but if the World Championship does not arrive at Suzuka, it will arrive in the next race, in Austin. problems: it was an example of how we don’t want a race weekend to go, but the important thing is to have learned the lesson and understood “.

We have worked well together, it’s nice to see this logo return, but it’s too early to know what it will mean for the future. ”
