Max Verstappen ‘realistic’ about his chances of challenging Lewis Hamilton

The Dutchman, 23, said he “did not want to hype things up” after driving Red Bull’s new car for the first time at Silverstone on Wednesday. He said the new car felt “normal” on his first few laps but it was too soon to say if it would be competitive. Red Bull have been secretive about their 2021 car, the RB16B, so far. “It’s more just to get the car out and run a few laps. Red Bull have refused to say on what parts of the car they have spent their two permitted development ‘tokens’ on. Mercedes was still the dominant car towards the end of the season so we of course know we have to keep improving.”.
