Max Verstappen ist mit Platz zehn sehr enttäuscht © Motorsport Images Max Verstappen is very disappointed with ten. After the bulls had already lost Sergio Perez in Q2, world champion Verstappen in Q3 did not get out of the last place, so that he will only tackle the race at Hungaroring on Sunday. The Dutch had already ruined his first run with a bremian in the second curve and only went into the decisive attempt as a seventh. But he couldn't improve there because there were problems with his engine. "I just didn't have any power," he says. "The engine was running, but nothing matted. Of course that is painful."

Red Bull had tried to reset a few sensors to fix it, according to team boss Christian Horner, but unfortunately it didn't work out ". Red Bull does not reveal exactly where the problem was, but motorsport consulent Helmut Marko says at 'Sky': "We think we know what it is and the exchange of this part is possible without punishment."

Bremser in the first round

Because all other drivers were able to get back in the last run behind him, Verstappen fell back to tenth place from the seventh. With his mistake in the first round, he also has to partially attribute himself that he starts so far back.

"My bikes blocked in curve 2, I just didn't have a grip at the front," says Verstappen. "Maybe the outlap was a little slow," he puzzles. "But usually your second attempt fits and you have another chance, but unfortunately we couldn't do the round."

This is pretty bitter from a red bull perspective, because overtaking in Hungary is difficult, so you need a good starting position. "Singapore, Monte Carlo and here are the three courses where you don't want something like that," says Marko.

But luckily it happened today and not tomorrow."

Verstappen says that he had actually felt good until then and was pleasantly surprised by the pace. "The boys and girls in the factory analyzed a lot last night because we were not satisfied at all. We made really positive changes and the car was much better for me."

"We looked very competitive, even in Q2 on the used tires we were always very quick," continued the Dutch. "I was looking forward to Q3, and then the first round didn't go. I knew that the pace was in the car, but unfortunately I couldn't show it."

Mercedes helps in the World Cup fight

at least at Red Bull you can comfort yourself that the main competitor Ferrari also missed the pole position that surprisingly went to George Russell in Mercedes. "I was surprised to see that," says Verstappen. "You were close, but I would not have expected you to make this jump in Q3. Of course that is good for me."

"But", "he continues," you have to do me a favor tomorrow. This is more important. "

from tenth place should be difficult for him to intervene in the fight. However, he excludes a tactical change of engine: "We can still have a good result," he waves. "It is difficult to overtake here, but everything can happen. It is not worth collecting a punishment from tenth place."
