At the start of the 2024 season, Red Bull Racing seemed to be the best with no competitor nearby its drivers. However, as the season proceeds further, it appears that the Milton Keynes team is slowing down and facing a series of problems. This has allowed rivals to compete against the team neck to neck. Max Verstappen believes it is becoming difficult for the team to overcome these hurdles.

Verstappen reckoned that Red Bull was focusing on doing a lot of things. However, the Dutch driver highlighted that the team was not in the same trajectory as its dominant campaign last season. The three-time world champion felt that Milton Keynes will need time to recover from a ‘spiral’ of issues it currently faces.

I think we are all very focused and doing a lot of things right, but for whatever reason, we are not in that same flow as we had last year, where everything goes really well for us, no reliability issues. It almost feels like you're a bit in a spiral and it may take a bit of time to get out of it.
Max Verstappen said

The 26-year-old was absolutely certain that Red Bull will overcome the struggles they faced last week in Montreal by analyzing the mistakes and drawbacks and work to improve for further races. This comes after Max Verstappen clinched the race victory.

We are for sure on top of everything, but there are always things that you can do better. We'll come out of this week and analyse everything again and try to improve.
