Verstappen pinpoints where Brazil Pole chance was lost

Max Verstappen believes an error on his one flying lap cost him the chance to secure Pole Position in Brazil.

Max Verstappen believes that an error on his single flying lap cost him the opportunity to secure Brazilian GP Pole Position. The Dutchman was one of the drivers to profit from the one dry qualifying lap in Q3, securing a front row start for the Brazil Sprint before the rain appeared. However, the Red Bull driver pointed to an error partway through the lap as the reason he was unable to take Pole away from Haas' Kevin Magnussen. "We knew that it was going to be that one lap, because there was a potential for rain," Verstappen told media. "I think I was like fourth or fifth car, and I locked up into Turn 8, so that of course cost me Pole today. "Still, compared to the proper opposition for tomorrow, it's looking good, and in these conditions, anything can happen. "We are still upfront, which is the most important."
