Verstappen: I’m still a few weekends away of being comfortable

Former Toro Rosso driver Max Verstappen has claimed that he still a few race weekends away from being completely comfortable in his new RB12.

With his first day as a Red Bull driver, Verstappen said that although he is not used to the car yet he feels that he had a good Friday and is looking forward to Saturday's qualifying.

"I think I can be happy," the youngster told motorsport.com. "I did all the procedures, I was enjoying it.

"I was getting used to the car still, but it was all going very positive. We were straight up there.

"At the end it's still not about lap times, but I'm enjoying it, I think that's the most important thing.

"It's still too early to say, I'm still getting used to the car.

"I didn't feel the full limits of the car yet. I think you feel it and you can explain it more when you are on the limits. It's all about feeling. If you feel well in the car you can go to the limit.

"Of course the seat position is completely different and the functions on the steering wheel, so that's already a bit different.

"For me it's just getting step by step. For sure when I jump in the car tomorrow I'll have a better feeling again. For sure you need a few weekends I think to be fully comfortable."
