Max Verstappen has come under a lot of scrutiny this season for his driving style and the way that he has carried himself on the circuit.
More than his driving style, the problem has been with his carelessness on the circuit, something that has cost him and his team.
Red Bull have seen Ricciardo scale new heights and Verstappen discover new lows but the good news is that they are still in the mix for the constructor’s championship.
Red Bull have been very competitive on race days and will be hoping to get better on qualifying days as well.
Because of all that has transpired this season, Verstappen has already come up with a plan for the Canada GP.
“Across all of Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve I think the last chicane is really important to get right,” Verstappen said.
“You arrive at such high speed so when you hit the braking point the brakes can be a bit cold which means you have to be careful and get it right every time.
“This will also set you up for the exit where you come very close to the wall, it is important not to brush it as you can damage the rim.
“A millimetre or centimetre doesn’t make too much difference, just don’t touch the wall.
“Turn one and two have a pretty cool atmosphere as the grandstands are usually full at that part of the track and it creates a small stadium feel, this makes the start a bit more special.
“The 2017 race ended with disappointment for me, as I had to stop after only 10 laps with a technical issue.
“Our car as it is now should perform well in Montreal so I am hopeful of achieving a solid result and making up for last year. Besides that, I’m always excited to get back over to the American continent as I really enjoy being there, the people, food and atmosphere are always amazing.” he added.
