Even though Max Verstappen dominated all the practice sessions and qualifications and secured a pole position in the Japanese GP, he was dissatisfied with his performance.

However, he still had to face some issues related to RB20’s tire overheating and losing grip on the tires.

Unveiling the Reasons Behind Verstappen’s Discomfort At The Suzuka Circuit.

After the first practice session, Max and the other drivers had to deal with some light rain during the FP2 session. This changed their plans, so during the third session on Saturday morning, they concentrated on gathering information for long runs instead of practicing for qualifying.

After qualifying for the pole position, Verstappen appeared dissatisfied when asked about it. He stated that he was unable to increase his speed for an advantage due to tire overheating at some point.

He explained that he began losing time from turn 13, focusing on tire sensitivity. Pushing too hard in sector 1 caused him to lose grip on the tires towards the end of his final lap.

Verstappen thought this could cause a serious problem in the main race, and perhaps that is why he was dissatisfied with his performance, even after achieving a pole position for Sunday’s race event. The reason for his dissatisfaction could be because Verstappen always strives for perfection.

Overall, Verstappen’s dominant performance in qualifying showcases his determination to bounce back from his previous setback in Australia, where he ended his winning streak to Carlos Sainz.
