Max Verstappen has admitted on Twitter that both he and Red Bull made the most of a difficult weekend in Portugal finishing second in the third round of the 2021 F1 world championship.
Having won the previous race in Imola, expectations were high in the Red Bull camp heading into the Portuguese Grand Prix weekend. Unfortunately, both Verstappen and his team were comprehensively beaten by Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes with further salt being rubbed into the wound when Verstappen's fastest lap was deleted for exceeding track limits.
The Dutchman however has put a tough weekend behind him as he prepares for this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix. Using Twitter as his platform of choice, the Red Bull man admitted that second place was the most he could hope for and that he's focused on what will be a very long season.
