Max Verstappen does not have high expectations when it comes to the world championships in 2020 and 2021. The Dutchman is now focusing on 2022, the year in which new regulations will be introduced. By doing so, Verstappen hopes to be able to take a stab at the title.
"I hope that next year we will get closer to Mercedes. I don't think we'll beat them," Verstappen starts to ORF. "You can't change that much about the car with corona. But I hope that in 2022, with the new regulations, there will be a new opportunity for us".
We still want to win every weekend.
Even before the race at Mugello, Verstappen estimated his chances of a world championship for this season to be slim. "If you're that far away and you're too slow, that won't happen. We still want to win every weekend. But the championship is over," Verstappen concludes. (Photo: Getty Images/Red Bull Content Pool)
