Max Verstappen, the reigning F1 world champion, has mesmerized his fans with smooth and silky skills behind the wheel of the mighty RB19. He had another tremendous outing during yesterday’s qualifying session in Brazil, and seeing his exploits, the Red Bull team principal, Christian Horner has claimed that he operated like a fast kangaroo.

Max Verstappen was on it from the get-go and did not face huge resistance from his rivals. While the two McLarens looked quick, Verstappen on his end, was pretty much faultless despite complaining about bouncing issues during the whole qualifying session.

Christian Horner has made it known that while the Dutchman was not completely happy during the qualifying session, he was once again in top form.

Max was a fast kangaroo! He put a lot of pressure on the brakes in the first corner, which didn’t seem to work so well with little fuel.

Christian Horner told racingnews365

He further added:

They changed some small things, after which things improved. That's where we fell a little short. I hope Max disappears on the horizon on Sunday, but it's always a competitive race here. We can't assume anything. In any case, better weather is predicted.

Looking at the comments, it is quite clear Horner was pretty pleased with his star’s driver’s exploits.

Max Verstappen could face some resistance during the remaining Brazilian GP weekend

While Max Verstappen was able to get the job done as per expectations during Friday’s sessions, the remaining Brazilian GP weekend could prove to be quite challenging. The McLaren F1 team especially, has looked very strong around Interlagos and could steal Verstappen’s thunder.

Moreover, there is the ever-present threat of the Brackley-based Mercedes F1 team. They did not have the best of the qualifying sessions yesterday, but it would be a huge mistake to count them out just yet. George Russell and Lewis Hamilton managed a 1-2 finish in Brazil last year.

Considering everything that has been discussed above, the upcoming sessions are going to be a fascinating watch. From the Sprint shootout to Sunday’s main Grand Prix, the ardent fans of the really can’t afford to miss out on how the upcoming sessions would develop for the top F1 drivers.
