Max Verstappen hopes that wet weather performance improves in 2017

Published on 15 Nov 2016 12:33

Max Verstappen feels that next year's new rules will improve wet weather performance in Formula One.

One of the biggest complaints since Pirelli re-entered F1 in 2011 has been their tyre's ability to work in wet conditions..

But Verstappen thinks that the wider tyres, and new aerodynamic regulations will aid wet weather driving

"Of course I think next year we can improve the tyres but I think it's a combination of having more horse power and torque now and less downforce," he said.

"I think next year it should be solved - it should be much easier to drive the cars in the wet because of having quite a lot more downforce," added the Red Bull driver
