Max Verstappen has claimed that Red Bull will target their weaknesses at low speed and going over kerbs in a bid to maintain their vice-like grip of the sport during the upcoming 2024 Formula 1 season.
Yet Christian Horner's team will not be comfortable to rest on their laurels, instead they will be keen to reach greater heights in 2024.
And when asked how much work needs to be done to maintain their dominance of the sport next year, Verstappen admitted that although it might be a challenge, they know where the improvements need to be made.
“It’s difficult to tell but, of course, we are also working on our car to try and make it better," he said.
“I think we know our weaknesses as well in the car and that’s what we’ll try to work on plus, of course, trying to make our strengths even stronger.”
Pressed further on what those weaknesses might be, the Dutchman highlighted the difficult race he endured at the Singapore Grand Prix where he finished down in fifth.
“Of course there are [weaknesses],” he continued. “Look at our race weekend in Singapore. In general, on street circuits, I think we are struggling a bit more, like in Vegas also.
“Low-speed is definitely not our strongest point in the car, [going over] bumps, kerbs as well, so that’s definitely a big area where we can improve.”
