Verstappen doubts: "It is difficult to know where you are in the wet"

The start of the 2022 Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix was marked by rain, as the water caused the teams to take the laps in stride as motorsport’s top flight returns to Suzuka following the COVID-19 pandemic . However, that was not an impediment for the pilots to check how the single-seaters behaved on Japanese soil, since they started shooting very early.

Despite the fact that they fell far short of the fastest times of the day on Friday in free practice, in Red Bull there is no great concern, since they are aware that they have tied the world title of Max Verstappen and the constructors’ championship. . On Sunday he could celebrate the second crown of the Dutchman, although they are still pending the resolution of the FIA for the cost limit of last year.

The Dutchman, who finished sixth and third in the respective practices in Japan, was happy with the return of the category to Suzuka, although he did not hide that he preferred it to have been in other weather conditions.

“Yes, I would have liked, of course, for it to be a bit more representative, but it’s always good to be here,” Verstappen said. “Luckily, the weather wasn’t a disaster, at least we were able to go out and do some things.”

“However, in terms of knowing where you are with the pace, it’s always difficult in the wet,” acknowledged the defending world champion, who studied the behavior of his RB18 in case that was useful in Sunday’s race, as it was wait for it to rain

“Just the basic stuff,” he replied when asked if he had tried anything different ahead of the main date. “So that’s what we did, that’s why I’m also looking forward to tomorrow, to see how we can be dry.”

The one from Red Bull , despite crossing the finish line in an unusual position for him in the present campaign in which he has dominated, doubts whether he is “on the tightrope” in Japan: “I don’t know, basically, We’ll start from scratch tomorrow in the dry, but again, it’s the same for everyone and I don’t think there will be any big differences throughout the day.”
