Verstappen content with 'strong' showing in Monaco
Max Verstappen says he believes Red Bull displayed strong “pace and performance” at the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday, as he finished the second-fastest of all the drivers only to eventually drop down to fourth due to being issued with a five-second penalty.
The Dutchman started the race third on the grid, and the defining moment of his afternoon came when a rapid Red Bull pitstop allowed him to race away from the engineers - only to collide into the side of Valtteri Bottas; Mercedes which was coming through the lane.
He subsequently received a penalty which would come into play if he pitted again. He didn’t, which meant it was added on to his final time.
