Max Verstappen felt like he was ‘missing a LUNG’ and ‘couldn’t breathe normally’ before the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix, despite the Red Bull star driving brilliantly from 15th to finish second

Max Verstappen has admitted he felt as if he was ‘missing a lung’ in the build-up to the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix earlier this month. Despite that performance, Verstappen, 25, revealed he was extremely ill in the week before the race. Speaking to media before this weekend’s Australia GP, he said: ‘At home I was really ill, like I could barely just walk around and felt like I was just missing a lung. ‘I got to the weekend, really believing that it was gone. Because normally when you get sick, like two, three days after you’re normally alright, you could just do your workouts.
