Christian Horner, the Red Bull Racing team principal talked about the title contention between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen. The Red Bull Boss still reluctant to hold one driver favourite over the other as yet.
Lewis and Max are both title contender this year and nobody can say who’s favourite to take the 2021 Driver’s Championship home till now. The Briton currently have a slight edge over the Dutchman, however the season is still wide open.
We gave it our all and I think we maximized our race result. Today that was 2nd and the fastest lap. As a team we’ve made a huge step, but we’re not where we want to be yet so we’ll continue to #KeepPushing 🇪🇸 #SpanishGP pic.twitter.com/e3NRiPadEl

Horner, in an interview talking an this, conveyed, “I think far too much has been made of who the favourite is. Go to the bookies if you want to see who the favourite is”
Christian being Red Bull boss, it’s obvious he will back up their star driver Verstappen. Talking about the Dutch prodigy, Horner stated, “I think he’s got that youthful bravado, he’s got nothing to lose. Every big pressure point in his career I’ve seen him deal with previously, he’s stepped up to the plate tremendously well. I’ve no doubt he’ll be able to deal with it should the opportunity come.”
The 47-year-old British boss further asserted on their arch rivals Mercedes and their main man Lewis Hamilton, “Look, they can all make mistakes and we’re at the non-pressured stage of the championship at the moment. As we get to the business end it will count for more.”

“When five races are left and if there is still the points difference there is now [14 in Hamilton’s favour], that’s when the pressure mounts up – not at this stage. [Those statements] don’t have any impact on the team at all. Lewis is a multiple World Champion and Mercedes are the reigning seven-time World Champions.”, concluded the Bulls principal.
