As he prepares for the penultimate round of the 2021 Formula One season in Saudi Arabia, Max Verstappen has shared his thoughts.
Max Verstappen says he’s “feeling calm” ahead of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix this weekend, where he has a chance to win the World Championship.
With two races remaining, Verstappen, who leads Lewis Hamilton by eight points, has a chance to win the championship.
The most likely way for Verstappen to win the title is for him to win the race and Hamilton to finish seventh or below.
“I’m feeling calm,” said Verstappen. “I know that I will always try to do the best that I can and we’ll just find out where we are going to end up.
“Nothing has been decided yet and we are all up for the challenge. There’s still a lot of racing left to do and we are going to give it our all, that’s for sure. It’s going to be an exciting end to the season.”
“No room for error” in Saudi Arabia
The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix is yet another new race on the Formula One calendar, with a difficult street circuit in waiting for the drivers.
The Jeddah Corniche Circuit, with an expected average speed of more than 250km/h, will be the second-fastest on the F1 schedule this year.
Verstappen claims there will be “no space for error” this weekend as he attempts to halt Hamilton’s undefeated run.
“I’ve driven the track on the simulator and it seems like a really fast track, so there’s no room for error,” added Verstappen.
“Of course, there will always be a bit of guess work as we haven’t driven on the track there yet. It’s going to be interesting and I’m looking forward to the challenge. It’s been fun to go to different tracks again this year.”
