Pilot “Red Bull” Max Verstappen spoke about his chances of fighting for the title in the season 2022.
“Of course, the season is long, there are still 20 races left, but at the moment I probably need 45 stages to have a chance at the championship. I’m too far behind in the championship. It is necessary that the car became faster and more reliable. Now I have no thoughts about the title.
The car is simply not good enough, both in terms of reliability and balance. I’m surprised we didn’t find the right way. There doesn’t seem to be a quick fix, so it’s going to take a lot of work. “Ferrari” is now much better than us in many aspects, ”AD quotes Verstappen.
After three races in the 2022 season, Verstappen is sixth in the Formula 1 drivers’ standings with 25 points. The reigning champion is 46 points behind leading Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc.
