Is this year a little more difficult for us?

Max Verstappen sees one point of improvement with Red Bull this season: speed in qualifying. Certainly in Monaco, where qualifying is crucial, it becomes important to find the speed in one lap: “It’s a little more difficult for us this year.”

If it was, we would have already dealt with it.”
