Verstappen’s attention to detail is insane

Verstappen's attention to detail is insane

Max Verstappen can tell when Helmut Marko’s phone rings from inside the Red Bull RB19 as we already know and it turns out that he can also see a line that is not perfectly straight.

Verstappen continued his winning streak at the Canadian Grand Prix, coming out on top for the fourth time in a row and sixth time overall this season, finishing nine and a half seconds ahead of Fernando Alonso of the Aston Martin.

The Dutchman not only gave Red Bull their 100th grand prix victory with that victory, but he also matched the late, great Ayrton Senna’s record of 41 career victories in Formula 1.

The Double World Champion made a meticulous observation while driving the Red Bull RB19 in footage from Friday’s second practice session that surfaced before his Canadian Grand Prix victory was officially announced.

Verstappen complained that the central yellow line, which directs drivers as to where to place their front wheels, was not parallel to the white lines on either side. This happened after pulling into the Red Bull pit box.

“Our yellow line, in the pit stop, in the middle, it’s not straight compared to the white lines,” he said over team radio. “It’s a bit distracting.”

Verstappen’s input was important to the Red Bull team, as they timed the two fastest pit stops of the 2023 Canadian Grand Prix for Sergio Perez and Verstappen, respectively.

That was possibly the greatest highlight of the race weekend for Perez, who after missing Q3 for the third straight race recovered to only P6 at the finish line with Verstappen now leading his teammate by 69 points in the Drivers’ Championship.
