“It’s definitely not looking great,” Verstappen said. “But I hope this is going to be our worst weekend.
“We’ll hopefully learn a lot from this and rectify a bit of it in the upcoming races. We just don’t have good balance throughout the corner.
“Understeer, oversteer, lack of grip. Not having a lot of top speed as well so everything together just makes it slow.”
Verstappen refused, though, to point the finger at his race engineer and the setup they had devised for his RB16 this weekend.
“I don’t think it’s the setup because then I would be blaming my engineer which I think is not the case,” Verstappen said. “So no, it’s not setup related.”
