Horner: That has been one of our biggest strengths over the years

During the first race at Silverstone circuit Max Verstappen came close to a victory thanks to flat tyres for Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas. Lucky for him, because he was more than a bit behind just before that. Nobody expected him to beat both Mercedes drivers at speed a week later.

No one is more pleasantly surprised than team boss Christian Horner. In his column on RedBull.com he praises the decision to qualify on the hard tire. A risky decision, but according to him Red Bull Racing and Max Verstappen are masters in that.

Red Bull Racing likes to take risks

"We have never been shy of taking calculated risks on different strategies and that has been one of our biggest strengths over the years. We have been prepared to take on the risks and that has meant the drivers have to do their jobs. Max absolutely delivered."

With his victory Verstappen is now second in the championship and Horner therefore still regrets that they fell out with technical problems during the first race. "You can’t look at the ifs and buts, even if the points would be pretty valuable right now."
