Verstappen won the United States Grand Prix. It was a huge surprise, because Mercedes has always been dominant there. However, he managed to stand the highest score on the podium which gave the Dutchman a good feeling.

It was a very satisfying win, we showed good pace in the US Grand Prix, so I want to build on That momentum and of course it was also important to score good points for the tournament.”

It is very important for me and the team that we try to win the next three races as we struggle from for the championship.”
