After the triple header, there is time for Red Bull team boss Christian to look back at the Grand Prix of the Netherlands, which the outspoken team boss has not forgotten for a long time. According to Horner, the Dutch Max Verstappen fans created a great atmosphere at the Zandvoort circuit.
In Christian Horner’s look back at the triple header, in which the F1 teams raced the Grand Prix of Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy in succession, the Briton looks back with pleasure at the race at the Zandvoort circuit. “I still have the Super-Max song in my head,” Horner refers to the song about his pupil Max Verstappen. “It was great to be at the Zandvoort circuit, because I have never seen such a crowd during a Formula 1 race. All the Dutch F1 fans had a great party in the stands!”
“The promoter did a great job during the Dutch GP, making me feel more like I was in a nightclub in Ibiza than on a race track. The energy level was maxed out and that created high expectations, especially when the King was still there.” Once on the scene! Luckily Max handled the pressure great and showed how mature he is.”
The disadvantage of the concentrated Verstappen was that Horner had little contact with his driver. “Max’s motorhome was next to mine at Zandvoort, but every night Max closed himself off and went to play on his Playstation. That’s why I was happy that my wife was present that race weekend in the Netherlands, otherwise I would have had no one to meet talk,” Horner said with a wink.
