I tried to stay focused, of course it’s not nice when things like that happen. Happy “I’m on the winning side and I’m very happy on the check (Sergio Perez). This is a great result for the team,” Verstappen said after the race.

“This weekend I felt huge support and I am extremely happy to be on the podium for the first time in the race in Spain. It was close, but this is a great result for the team and I am happy about it. We had different tire strategies and I missed Max, but after that I thought that I could pass it and not waste precious seconds in order for my strategy to succeed. But, still … this is a team result “, he stated.

Mercedes driver George Russell took third place.

“It was very difficult today. I did everything I could to keep Max. But he did a great job. I am very proud to be standing here, the team did a great job, thank you to everyone in the factory. When I saw Red Bull cars in the mirrors the radio “I have to keep them all, it was a couple of rounds to enjoy and I am satisfied that I can go home in third place and with points for the team. Congratulations to Max,” Russell said.
