Horner: Wolff "lack of understanding" if he thinks RB19 F1 car favours Verstappen
Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has responded to Mercedes boss Toto Wolff’s comments about Max Verstappen’s dominance over his teammate Sergio Perez. Horner dismissed Wolff’s claim that Red Bull has tailored the car to suit Verstappen’s driving style, calling it a “total lack of understanding” of how a team develops a race car. He emphasized that the team’s focus is on developing the fastest car possible, rather than favoring one driver over the other. Horner praised Verstappen’s ability to adapt to different conditions and grip levels, stating it is one of his key skill sets. He suggested that Verstappen utilizes the tools within the car to adjust his driving style.
