Red Bull pilot Max Verstappen said he expects Red Bull to be stronger in the race.
In recent years, Red Bull has often fallen behind in qualifying and performing better in the race.
This year, the Austrian team has made significant progress on the chassis side and is very close to Ferrari pilots on the Australian Grand Prix qualifying rounds.
The Dutch team thinks the team can be stronger in the race.
"Now we have to look at how the race will develop, we decided to use super soft rubber and hope works."
"I could have been faster if I did not make the mistake, but we know that Mercedes is a 0.3 or 0.4 seconds faster with engine mode, the Australian track is not the best track for us, I think RB14 works very well and I am not worried about the difference. We should be in seconds. "
"Our car is much better than last year." Compared to the situation in the beginning of last year, the team has taken an important step forward, driving the car is much better and I am really happy. "
"The balance of the car is very good, you can enjoy it while driving, but there are things you can always develop in the future because we will see how it will be because all the tracks are different, but our chassis is not bad, it could be 0.3 or 0.4 seconds with Mercedes despite the engine mode."
"We usually stay behind on sorting tours and it gets harder for us because the transition is very difficult, we are aware of this, but we are ready for three or four years."
Verstappen told Haas about the drivers: "They did a great job, but they are behind the first three teams, I'm a little sad because I thought they were not too far behind after the first session."
