Timmy Hansen reveals that he aims to draw some inspiration from Max Verstappen's race-winning drive in Austria last week. The Swede leads the championship by a single point and sets his sight on claiming victory in Sweden.

Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen claimed his first win of the season with a sterling drive in Austria last weekend after recovering from a poor start and to overtake Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc for the race lead with two laps remaining.

"I plan to take some inspiration from Max Verstappen’s drive at the Red Bull Ring: it was an amazing drive and it’s very hard to do what he did," Hansen said. "But I’d rather win the race like he did but making a bit of a better start from the grid!”

"Höljes is an incredibly technical track and it’s a real driver’s circuit," he said. "It’s up and down, it’s got an amazing flow to it."

"We get a lot of local support which is excellent."

Should Timmy claim victory in Sweden, it would be his first home win in the World RX championship, and the Hansen families tenth win at Höljes.
