Christian Horner: “Few drivers can do that”


Red Bull Racing team boss Christian Horner knows that Formula 1 champion Max Verstappen has many qualities, but one of them is very special because it is extremely rare, as the Briton emphasizes.

Formula 1 champion Max Verstappen is enjoying the winter break, as a glance at social media reveals. The Red Bull Racing star has every reason to celebrate, after all, last year he was finally able to achieve his big goal of conquering the world championship crown. On the last lap of the last race, he snatched the lead from Lewis Hamilton and with it the win and the title.

Team boss Christian Horner knows what distinguishes his protégé. There is one strength that stands out, as the Briton pointed out to “The Times”: “I think there is no doubt that he is the best who sat in one of our cars when it comes to pure ability and will . In this regard, he’s the best we’ve had so far. “

Also compared to Sebastian Vettel, who won four titles with Red Bull Racing. “Sebastian was also incredibly good, but we gave him a better car,” said the 48-year-old. In his opinion, the German, along with Verstappen and Hamilton, is one of the few drivers who has a particular strength.

“Max has so much natural talent that it is easier for him than other drivers to drive to the limit. He’s not under pressure, so when he goes full throttle he can still see what’s going on with the race, the car and the opponents. That is very rare. Lewis has this ability, so does Max, and Sebastian had it too when he won his titles, ”explained Horner.
