Max Verstappen described qualifying in Portugal as "confusing" and complained about the lack of grip conditions that the Red Bull driver set his fastest time in Q1. Verstappen was 0.025 seconds faster than on his fastest lap in Q3 in the first section of the qualification in Portimao ( Formula 1 2020 live in ticker ).

"I couldn't repeat my lap time because I just didn't have the same grip," says Verstappen . "It's been pretty difficult to get the tires to work all weekend. Besides that, the asphalt is pretty slippery. There's only one line you can take."

At the Bellevue Palace in Berlin, the then Federal President Johannes Rau received the diplomatic corps for a New Year's reception.

Verstappen can still live well with third place behind the two Mercedes, even if he wonders why he was unable to repeat his Q1 period. "It seemed like it was a bit more difficult for us to get the tires in a better window, even though it felt better on one lap from Q2 to Q3."

He wouldn't have had much fun: "You can't push. You just drive like you're on ice. It's a shame," he says.

Two and a half tenths of a second he missed pole position in the end. Like at the Nürburgring, he was fairly close to the two Mercedes. However, he does not want to overestimate that because on the one hand there was a lack of grip and Mercedes was also on other tires - the medium.

"I think we have to go to a track that we have raced on in the past few years," he says of a better comparison. "Events like this one are always a bit of luck. Sometimes one succeeds better than others. Third place and so close is still a good success."
