Max Verstappen has named the main weakness of Red Bull that he wants to see improved for the 2024 Formula 1 season.

The Dutchman won 19 out of the 22 races with Red Bull taking nearly a clean sweep, before Carlos Sainz managed to bring their run of wins to an end in Singapore.

The RB19 excelled at virtually every circuit apart from the street track, where neither Verstappen or teammate Sergio Perez looked at home when driving the car.

When asked if he thinks there are any weaknesses in the RB19, which is now one of the most successful F1 cars of all time, Verstappen told media, including RacingNews365: "We know our weaknesses in the car.

"That's what we'll try to work on plus, of course, trying to make our strengths even stronger.

Verstappen: We struggle more on street circuits

Verstappen believes the low speed corners is not one of their strong suits in the RB19, with bumps exacerbating the issue when they visit street circuits.

"Look at our race weekend in Singapore. In general, on street circuits, I think we are a bit struggling a bit more like in Vegas also," said Verstappen.

"Low speed is definitely not our strongest point in the car; bumps, curbs as well. So that's definitely a big area where we can improve."
