Max Verstappen doubt shared as David Coulthard assesses Red Bull hopes before British GP

Verstappen can’t wait to get back on track at the Northamptonshire circuit, where’s his mischievously joked rain might be on the cards.

“I’m looking forward to the next triple-header [in the UK and Spain] and Silverstone is a really nice track to drive,” Verstappen said.

“The corners at Silverstone are insanely fast and Copse is flat out! Maggots is also flat out in seventh gear which is already crazy, especially in qualifying as you don’t even tap the brake anymore, you just downshift.

“At Silverstone you have to get the right wing level, and of course for the lower speed corners you prefer more downforce and grip.

“Obviously it can rain at Silverstone, even though it is summer in the UK but I like those conditions and maybe we wouldn’t mind the rain as it could mix things up.”
