Red Bull boss happy with fair Ferrari F1 title battle this year
Jul.27 - Red Bull is enjoying a more respectful head-to-head for the world championship in 2022, according to team boss Christian Horner.
Last year, the energy drink-owned outfit's duel with Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton was one of the most intense in Formula 1 history.
"It's been a competition that's been about what's happening on the track," he told Eurosport.
"There's not been a lot of politics and bullsh*t with what's going on off the track."
"They made claims before the weekend," Horner said, "but Max was able to control that quite easily.
"I heard that Toto said they are working through the summer break to improve the car. That would of course be illegal," he laughed.
For now, Verstappen is fighting only with Leclerc, whose crash from the lead in France blew out the points gap between the pair to a whopping 63 points.
"There's a respect between the two teams that is extremely competitive," he confirmed.
"We're going head-to-head at each race and there is a genuine respect between the drivers and teams which is good to see."
