Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez, according to Red Bull CEO Christian Horner, are the team’s best racer collaboration to yet.
Martin Brundle considers Christian Horner’s claim that Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez make up the best driver lineup Red Bull has ever had is “strange.”
At the squad’s 2023 livery debut in New York, the racers joined Horner and backup Daniel Ricciardo. Horner complimented positively of the team’s recent lineup during the event.
Following their combined 17 race triumphs in 2022, which also enabled Red Bull to earn their first Constructors’ Championship since 2013, Horner hailed Verstappen and Perez “the best pairing” Red Bull has “ever had in Formula 1.”
Due to this, longtime F1 racer Brundle wondered what Horner meant specifically when he used the word “best.”
Brundle on Horner’s ‘weird’ driver statements
“What does Christian mean when he says ‘best’? Does he mean they fit together well as a combo?” Brundle told Sky Sports F1.
“In other words, that Sergio is probably a little bit more compliant than perhaps Mark Webber or Sebastian Vettel would have been.
“So, odd in that respect, but Christian’s got the data and that’s what he thinks, and he’s the boss.
“But if they’re the two you’ve got going into the season ahead, why not say nice things about them?”
