Max Verstappen: “It’s great to win again here!  »

Max Verstappen (Red Bull, winner of the Dutch GP, Sunday): “It was another race without incident, but we had to push all the way, with the VSC, the safety car. Once the soft tires were on for the last laps, things were much better. Before the safety car, I had the feeling that everything was going well with the hard guys, but we had to change tires and put on soft ones. I managed a good restart, attacked Lewis (Hamilton) at the first turn. Our car was very well balanced. It’s great to win again here! It’s always special to win your national Grand Prix, I had an incredible weekend, received extraordinary support. Thank you all for coming, I’m proud to be Dutch. »

George Russell (Mercedes, 2nd): “As a team, we showed a very high pace. I think we were hoping for a little better but it’s already a very good result. To be on the podium again is a very good feeling. Step by step, we come back to the best, it proves how competitive our car is. »

Charles Leclerc (Ferrari, 3rd): “Clearly, doing better today was unrealistic. Max was much faster, the Mercedes were very good on the hard tyres. We will have to analyze that later, but this podium remains a good result. For the Championship, as I already said at Spa, the gap is really very important (Verstappen is 109 points ahead). I will try to optimize our potential in each of the remaining races. »
