Verstappen cites Red Bull changes for lack of balance

Verstappen cites Red Bull changes for lack of balance

Max Verstappen has highlighted changes made by Red Bull between the two practice sessions on Friday as the cause for his lack of balance during FP2 for the Hungarian Grand Prix.

After topping first practice at the Hungaroring, Verstappen finished third fastest in the second session, just under three-tenths of a second adrift of Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas.

During the session, Verstappen could be heard complaining of understeer before telling his team over the radio "all the time I try to turn in, I'm losing the rear. I don't know what it is, it feels completely broken."

On why the balance had shifted, Verstappen also cited the temperature in Hungary - which peaked at 62-degrees for the track and 33 air - as a reason for the sudden loss in balance.

"Just a few adjustments we were trying from FP1 into FP2 so we just need to look into which things worked and which things didn't," said Verstappen. "The track was also very hot so it is never easy like that so we will see."

Asked if there was a specific area to improve, the Dutchman added: "Especially over one lap but also on the long run. A lot of things to look into but nothing shocking."

Referring to the margin to the top, Verstappen insisted: "It is nothing too big to overcome."

He added: "Just in general, not an easy day with track temperatures like this so we will analyse everything."
