Max Verstappen: “It will be special to go back to Suzuka!”

1 Mins read

Max Verstappen made his first appearance as a Scuderia Toro Rosso driver in Suzuka last year, and is excited to make his first race appearance at the circuit this weekend.

The Dutch teenager was ecstatic to make his Formula 1 bow last year on such a great track, and knows getting a good rhythm is important to get the best out of a lap.

“It will be special to go back to Suzuka!” insisted Verstappen. “I remember last year, first time at a real Formula 1 circuit with a Formula 1 car on such a challenging track… Wow… It’s a great track to drive and I can’t wait to go out there again.

“The first sector is great, with a lot of high speed corners and I like the 130R. You need to find the right rhythm and stay in total focus to get the most out of a lap.

“The environment and the people are also very nice! They really like F1.”
