Max Verstappen of Netherlands and Red Bull Racing talks to the media in the Paddock during previews for the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on June 8, 2017 in Montreal, Canada.

Jun.13 - Max Verstappen says he is worried not only about Red Bull's performance this year, but also for 2018.

The young Dutchman is already under contract for next year, but after retiring in Montreal he insisted 2017 has been "completely crap" so far.

Team boss Christian Horner excused the 19-year-old, though.

"He knows how hard the team is pushing to make the car better. He'll see the big picture," the Briton said.

"We were racing against a Mercedes (in Canada) and we beat Ferrari. Max hasn't had the result but it's still a long season. His time will come," Horner added.

But Verstappen said his concerns are not just about 2017, particularly following the latest news from engine partner Renault.

"We wanted to go for the world title this year, but we are far from it," he told the Dutch broadcaster Ziggo Sport Totaal.

Renault has now said the power unit will not be significantly updated for the rest of the year, and Verstappen admitted: "I'm worried, also for the direction for next year.

"I want to win and I absolutely think this team can. You can see we have improved the car a lot. But the power is yet to come.

"And right now, as you may have read, there will be nothing more (in 2017). Updates were promised but there have been few," he added.

One thought on “Verstappen worried about Red Bull for 2018

  1. Ian Grobler

    Move on, if the opportunity presents itself. These teams like Red Bull & McLaren have the budgets to develop great teams but they keep their loyalty to weak engine manufacturers. It's one thing to develop a an engine together, but how does this implicate a driver's career success?
    Max is a jetfighter, he needs the guns to join the fight!
