Verstappen would beat Hamilton in straight track fight: Red Bull’s Horner
• ‘From what I see I would absolutely back Max,’ says Horner
• Horner says ‘elements are starting to come into place’ for team
The Red Bull team principal, Christian Horner, believes his driver Max Verstappen would beat Lewis Hamilton in a straight fight on track. Verstappen won at the last round in Austria but Red Bull are still unable to match Hamilton’s Mercedes team at the vast majority of tracks and the pair have yet to regularly compete wheel to wheel.
Horner, however, is confident that Verstappen, who is only 21, and his team will be winning world championships in the future.
