Monaco is a different challenge though and is arguably the most important qualifying session of the year owing to the tight nature of the circuit.
Verstappen admits his car is set up better for racing than qualifying and is certainly not entering the weekend with a huge degree of confidence.
"The RB19 is often better in the race than in qualifying and that session is extremely important in Monaco," he added.
"Performance over one lap is normally not our strong point, but nevertheless we have already taken a number of pole positions this year. Anything is possible, but here in Monaco a surprise is just around the corner."
