Red Bull F1 Representative “Formbook must be cleaned up”[F1-Gate .com]

Red Bull F1 team principal Christian Horner says past formbooks must be cleaned up prior to the F1 Mexican Grand Prix.

Red Bull Honda and Max Verstappen are widely regarded as dominant in the F1 Mexican Grand Prix. Verstappen won in 2017 and 2018 and received a grid penalty in 2019 but was the fastest in qualifying.

But Red Bull F1 team principal Christian Horner finds it impossible to predict which candidate will dominate. At the Circuit of the Americas, which was seen overwhelmingly in favor of Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton last weekend, Red Bull Honda finished 1-3 with Max Verstappen winning.

“I think we have to get rid of the formbook,” said Christian Horner.

“The two teams are very tight. Mexico was a track for us, but sometimes for them too. Therefore, we underestimated them.”

Christian Horner emphasized that Austin’s success is important to Red Bull Honda.

“Everything is important, but this is a big win because it was the stronghold of Lewis and Mercedes,” said Christian Horner.

“It was a milestone for us to win the pole over there, and then we were able to turn to victory even if we didn’t lead on the first lap.”

Austin’s result extended Max Verstappen’s lead, but Red Bull Honda couldn’t be too confident, Christian Horner added.

“You have to attack, so 12 points is equal to nothing. As we’ve seen before, it can disappear very quickly,” commented Christian Horner.

“Therefore, we need to keep attacking on the race weekend and make the most of them as much as possible. With five races remaining, the pressure will only increase.”
