In the first 14 rounds of the championship, Max Verstappen has already won nine victories – for comparison, we can recall that during the entire last season, when he won the title in a tough confrontation with Lewis Hamilton, he won ten races.
The Belgian Grand Prix ended with a double victory for Red Bull Racing, and commenting on this result, Helmut Marko, motorsport adviser to the Austrian company Red Bull, noted that it was easier to achieve such a success than one might expect.
Helmut Marko: “It was easier than we thought. To be honest, we didn’t have much confidence, but after the first few laps we saw that when the track in front of Max was free, he was going much faster than everyone else. He ran the race very confidently. Lately, he’s been winning races with incredible ease.
This was made possible by the combination of self-confidence with the highest level of racing prowess that Verstappen demonstrates. In addition, our cars have reliable engines that allow you to fight for victories. So now everything is going quite well.
In the individual standings, Max has a more than convincing advantage, but there are still eight races ahead, 25 points can be earned for winning each, plus Saturday’s sprint will be held in Brazil, so we can’t afford to relax just yet. We continue to work, especially since there are many aspects in which we need to improve. In the remaining races, we want to win four more victories.
If we talk about Sergio Perez, then he is certainly progressing, but he must be fully involved in the work from the very first training. Perhaps then, by joint efforts, we will be able to win a couple more victorious doubles. And then the Red Bull Racing drivers will finish the championship for the first time in 1st and 2nd places in the individual standings – this is our next goal.
