Helmut Marko: Verstappen will finish the race on the podium, although he starts from the last row.
The Chief Bull Team adviser is convinced that Max Verstappen will finish the race for the Italian GP, despite the fact that he will start from the background due to the penalty of the starting points.
Verstappen will be launching a fourth specification of a Honda powertrain in Monza, which means that the Dutch will start completely from the start of the start line.
However, Helmut Marko is convinced that his guard has podiums almost guaranteed.
“Max has a big advantage in the event of rain, as it starts from the pits and we can change the car's settings. We have a good rhythm and the new powertrain also works great. I'm sure Max can finish the race on podium even in dry weather. If we survive the first round without complications, we can achieve a very good result. ”
