Watch Max Verstappen’s frank admission as he takes pole position at Japanese Grand Prix

Max Verstappen made a frank admission after storming to pole position at the Japanese Grand Prix for a third straight year on Saturday, 6 April.

The world champion became the first driver to take pole in the opening four races of a season since Lewis Hamilton nine years ago, setting the pace with a lap of one minute 28.197 seconds.

"Yeah it was quite close at the end. I think overall this track is very sensitive with the tyres, with the tarmac being really aggressive," Verstappen admitted in an interview with Sky Sports.
