Horner after victory Max in Saudi Arabia: 'Max was clinical'

Published on 09 March 2024 by Coen Versteeg

Christian Horner, team boss and CEO of Oracle Red Bull Racing, was more than happy after the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix. Max took his second win of the season and teammate Sergio Perez finished second again. As a result, Red Bull Racing has almost the maximum points so far this season. Only one point for the fastest lap was taken away by Charles Leclerc in the Ferrari.

Horner says afterwards that the race went well: "Today was a very well executed race, the only mishap we had was the unsafe release, but Checo had enough in hand to keep that second place and Max was clinical throughout to win again. The cars performed brilliantly all weekend and the drivers have done their part to deliver us a second one-two of the season already. I think you can see that the team is operating at an incredibly high level, trackside and back home in Milton Keynes, we've carried that momentum from last year and that is testament to a lot of hard work from everyone. The RB20 was an aggressive evolution from the RB19 for us but after a dominant display in Bahrain, we've come to another circuit and it's performed well again. In Melbourne we will have another, very different challenge, so let’s see how we perform. We have started the season in the best possible way we could and the whole team now want to continue this form into the remainder of a very long season."
