Max Verstappen expecting a ‘good battle’ with Mercedes at Austin

Since the addition of the United States GP to the racing calendar in 2012, Silver Arrows have dominated at the Circuit of The Americas, winning six out of eight races – thanks to the long straights which always benefit the German team.

It is worth mentioning that of those six wins, Lewis Hamilton is responsible for five. The Briton, who is currently trailing Max Verstappen in the driver’s championship by six points, will expect to regain his lead at the track that suits the Mercedes engine.

Despite Mercedes’s stronghold at the COTA, Verstappen is confident Red Bull can challenge them for victory.
