Max Verstappen jokes about Lando Norris title fear after amusing post from McLaren star

“We still have a lot of work to do. We are still behind over one lap and I don’t expect Hungary to be particularly our best track, because I do think we are lacking a bit of downforce compared to Ferrari and that’s what you need around there.”

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has claimed that Verstappen’s excellent start to the season was beyond his ‘wildest dreams’. He told the Dutch edition of Motosport: “If you had told me before Christmas last year that with the biggest rule change in 40 years and with the energy we put into last year’s championship we would now have eight wins, two sprint wins and leads of 63 and 82 points in the championship, it would have exceeded my wildest dreams.

“It’s really indicative of the determination, dedication and hard work behind the scenes at the factory. We see a very competitive Ferrari this year and we see Mercedes building momentum. But when you consider we were the last team to put the focus entirely on this year, we’ve done a phenomenal job.”
