Verstappen admits Red Bull has ‘work to do’ after mixed Friday in Canada.

Max Verstappen has admitted that Red Bull has ‘work to do’ to improve its performance after a mixed Friday practice for the Canadian Grand Prix.

The Dutchman finished sixth fastest in FP2, behind both Mercedes and Ferrari drivers. He said that the car was not fantastic over the bumps and kerbs, and that the team needed to fine-tune a few things.

Verstappen also faced a lack of running in FP1, as the session was cut short due to a CCTV synchronisation issue that affected the safety of the track. He said that it was the same for everyone, but that it was not a straightforward day.

Verstappen, who leads the championship by 53 points over Sergio Perez, said that he expected some surprises in qualifying, as rain is forecasted for Saturday. He said that wet weather normally brings some challenges and opportunities, and that he was looking forward to it.

Verstappen will be looking to continue his recent form. He will also be aiming to repeat his victory from 2022, when he won the Canadian Grand Prix after a thrilling battle with Carlos Sainz.
