Red Bull team boss Christian Horner calls the one-two of Max Verstappen and Sergio Pérez in the Belgian Grand Prix “the best performance ever” by the Austrian racing stable. “We’ve never won a race from fourteenth on the grid. To finish first and second with Max and ‘Checo’ and also set the fastest lap of the race is an extraordinary achievement.”
Verstappen was fastest in qualifying on Saturday, but the world champion had to move backwards on the grid because he used his fourth engine of the season in Belgium. Many other drivers also received similar grid penalties at Spa-Francorchamps. Verstappen therefore started from 14th place, but he drove forward at a high pace and dominated the race in the Ardennes.
“A fantastic win from Max,” said Horner. “He was in a class of his own this weekend. But this is really a team victory: from everyone here and all the people at the Milton Keynes factory. There is a lot of hard work behind the scenes and that contributes to a result like today.”
World Cup leader Verstappen will start next week with almost 100 points ahead of his competitors at the Grand Prix of the Netherlands at the Zandvoort circuit.
