Max Verstappen: Austria kerbs 'not designed' for Formula One

08 Juillet 2017

Max Verstappen labelled a "positive day" for Red Bull following Friday's pair of practice sessions for the team's home race in Austria this weekend.

Kerbs have been an issue in the past at the venue, and there were some changes for this year, with the spacing between the "baguette" kerbs increased to 3.2m.

Verstappen's Red Bull has been unreliable all year, forcing the 19-year-old to retire four times so far in 2017.

Despite the adjustments, drivers continued to hit trouble over the kerbs on Friday, with Haas' Romain Grosjean coming off worse with a puncture.

"I don't think it's too hard with the tyres, as long as we do the normal things and I think it's a very similar story with any other race".

"We had a small issue with a brake connection at the start of FP2 meaning we had to take the floor off the vehicle which lost us some time but we pretty much completed our programme so we can be happy with that".

"We struggled a bit today with some things, so I think we should more or less know what it is".

Williams Martini Racing's Felipe Massa suffered damage after running wide at the final corner.

"I damaged my vehicle today, and the kerb is definitely not there to damage the auto, it's there for different reasons", he said. The Brazilian agrees with Verstappen about the kerbs and raises concerns about cars returning to the track. The yellow kerbs again - luckily not too much damage. "We are going to reinforce everything we can to make sure it stays in one piece".
