Lewis Hamilton must be furious with Niki Lauda for two reasons – first, Lauda blamed the Brit for the Mercedes collision and secondly, Lauda called Max Verstappen the ‘talent of the century.’ Well, for that compliment, even Sebastian Vettel must be fuming!
Max Verstappen’s maiden race victory on his Red Bull debut gives us plenty to cheer about. We heard the Dutch national anthem on the Formula 1 podium for the first time ever and it seems fans should get used to hearing this anthem more often.
The team give you our view on the ‘Civil War’ that broke out on track between the Mercedes drivers and wonder if the Lauda-Hamilton bromance has come to an end.
Elsewhere, did Red Bull favour a Verstappen win over Daniel Ricciardo? For a brand built on ‘shock marketing’, a Verstappen win was perfect PR for their ‘Gives You Wings’ tagline. Horner has labelled Verstappen as the ‘future’ of Red Bull Racing’, so will they now chase the Formula 1’s ‘Youngest World Champion’ record? And where does this leave Ricciardo?
We find amusement in Alonso’s lack of power (yes, it’s still funny), Kimi racing against both generations of Verstappens and Vettel’s cranky rants.
