Red Bull Racing? Oh, they nailed it. Just like the fans had their bets placed. Christian Horner, the guy steering the ship, couldn’t stop grinning when he chatted with Viaplay.

He was all, “Our team? Rockstars.” Short, sweet, and to the point. “A killer race strategy. Both drivers? Lightning fast. And hey, kicking off the season snagging all the points? Couldn’t be better.”

Then, Horner gushed about Verstappen. “The kid’s on fire, but let’s not forget those soft tyres. We played our cards right, and boom, Max took it home. And Checo? Solid as ever. Today’s a good day to be proud.”

What’s Next? Jeddah, Baby!
