Verstappen ‘frustrated, disappointed’ with Red Bull car.

In front of 80,000 Dutch fans, Max Verstappen was forced to retire from the Belgian Grand Prix due to engine issues, his sixth in the season.

Verstappen lost power during the race and came to a grinding halt. He termed the event “absolutely unbelievable”.

This needs to stop happening to top contenders like Red Bull he said.

Reacting at the paddock Verstappen said he is, “Frustrated, disappointed and just really not happy,”

“For a top team, this can’t happen. At the beginning you can say bad luck, these things happen. But if it’s happening again for the sixth time this year, you can’t call it bad luck anymore.

“The fans buy very expensive tickets to come and watch the race and then after eight laps, it’s finished.

“Also, it’s just really demotivating because you work hard all weekend, you have a great qualifying and you’re looking forward to the race but then you retire after eight laps.

“I don’t know what to say – it’s just a very tough year.”

So how long will Verstappen continue to drive for Red Bull?

“If it continues like this, not very long,” says Verstappen.

“We need to get on top of it. Of course, we will always speak about it, but at the moment I’m not a happy person and looking forward to going back home.”
