GOOD LAP VS GREAT LAP: Tackling Texas with Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez


How do you maximise a lap of the Circuit of The Americas? Good Lap vs Great Lap is back with double world champion Max Verstappen and his Red Bull team mate Sergio Perez.

Last year, Verstappen took pole around this Austin fan-favourite circuit that opens up with an uphill left-hander, sweeps through the esses and runs back downhill into the long back straight. From there, drivers face a windy third sector with the triple-apex complex from Turns 16-18, before the challenging final two corners send them around for another lap.
