But Verstappen looks optimistically at the start and points out that if there is a track where starting from the second row can be an advantage, it is in Mexico, due to the one kilometer long straight that exists to take advantage of the slipstream of other competitors.

“We had very little grip due to the altitude,” said Verstappen upon reaching parc ferme. “When you try to push a little harder you just lose it and I think that happened to us in Q3.”

“Of course I would have liked to start from first position, but we will have slipstream until we reach Turn 1 and then we will see what happens. I'll try".
