(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMULA ONE DRIVER, MAX VERSTAPPEN, SAYING: "Yeah, of course you know, we did really well in Malaysia but it's not a guarantee we will do really well here, but last year, the car was very competitive. and I think we can be competitive again, but if we can fight for victory, I don't know, because at the moment, I think Ferrari is really strong still and Mercedes, they always struggle a little bit in Malaysia because of the heat with the tyres, they're not so good on that, so for sure they'll be very strong here again, but hopefully we can be quite close, that will a good achievement I think." 7.
