With the 2023 FORMULA 1 season just about to kick off in Bahrain, two-time World Champion Max Verstappen is feeling relaxed after a positive three-day test.

‘I stayed out in Bahrain after the test, so it’s been a nice lead up to the race weekend. With all the testing we have completed, we are heading into the weekend in a good position. There’s a lot to be said about reading into the data at testing, each track is very different in terms of how a car can behave, so I think as a Team we will focus on improving and always trying to do better and that’s what we have to keep doing throughout the year. We had three positive days at testing but now this is where it counts, at the race.’

Sergio Perez

‘Race week is finally here and I am massively excited to be racing again. The RB19 felt really good in testing and responded well to set-up changes we made. I am looking forward to seeing how the car responds to qualifying and race conditions. I don’t think testing is a true representation of where teams are at, so it’ll be interesting to see where everyone is after qualifying on Saturday. We certainly look and feel strong but it’s all about how you perform across a race weekend. I want to start the season positively and have a consistent weekend in Bahrain.’
