Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner says he could’ve “never imagined” Max Verstappen taking victory in the Austrian Grand Prix.
The Dutch driver benefitted from Mercedes’ double-DNF to bring home his first victory of 2018 at the Red Bull Ring.
“All credit to Max today, he drove a very, very mature race, managing a very tricky situation with the tyres,” Horner said following the race.
The team’s day was slightly marred by the retirement of Daniel Ricciardo. who said Red Bull was “looking at a one-two” before a broken exhaust ended his race on lap 54.
