Red Bull’s Max Verstappen hasn’t set any goals for the Australian Grand Prix, claiming a driver is “blind” in Formula One.
Despite being only 21, the Dutchman is heading into his fifth season as a Formula driver.
However, testing isn’t always the greatest indicator and Verstappen is reluctant to set goals for the season-opener.
“I just try to get the best out of myself, but I’ll have to wait and see what the engine and the car, so until Australia you can not really set goals,” he told Motorsport.com.
“You are actually blind. In Formula 1 you are so dependent on the package you get.
“It does not make much sense to worry about that. That does not mean that I do not want to get the best out of myself and the team, but it is, therefore, a matter of waiting.”
Fans will not have to wait much longer, with the race weekend beginning on Friday with Free Practice 1 and two.
