Max Verstappen not ruling out Singapore win

Max Verstappen is not ruling out a bid for victory under the Singapore lights next weekend.

Max Verstappen is not ruling out a bid for victory under the Singapore lights next weekend.

Amid a strong run of form for Red Bull, the team faltered at Monza, with team figures admitting that the improved Renault engine is still no match for Mercedes and Ferrari.

"Monza is our weakest circuit," admitted boss Christian Horner, "but Singapore is one of our strongest."

It has emerged that Red Bull, already planning to bring car improvements to the city state, is also expecting Renault to bring a 15 horse power upgrade boost to Singapore.

"Yes, I expect that we will have a good weekend," Verstappen is quoted as saying by Speed Week.

"Singapore rewards a car that has a lot of downforce, and there are not many straight lines.

"A podium must be our goal, but we are secretly looking at the win."

Red Bull are currently 11 points ahead of third-placed Ferrari.
