Verstappen: I'm disappointed, but I'm going to attack the win anyway
Max Verstappen was disappointed with the commissioners' decision after punishing three starting points, and the Dutchman is determined to fight for the win despite the loss of the positon pole at the Rodriguez Brothers Race.
The commissioners, after qualifying, made the decision to award the Dutchman a penalty of three starting places, ignoring the yellow flags, which meant that Crimson Bull had fallen to the fourth starting position and the pole location belonged to Charles Leclerc. Both Ferrari racers will start the race for the GP of Mexico and Lewis Hamilton will start the third race.
Despite his punishment, Verstappen is determined to fight for the victory in Sunday's race.
“I am disappointed with the punishment, but our car is very good and fourth place is a good starting point. We have proven that we can be competitive, and our car performs extremely well on this track. We need good originals and then we will try to fight to win. We'll see what happens. “
