Horner Unfazed by Hamilton’s Victory: Max’s Consistent Performance Shines

Lewis Hamilton stood victorious at the British Grand Prix after 945 days, marking his ninth win at this event. Among those who congratulated him was Christian Horner, the Red Bull team boss.

Hamilton is now one of six different race winners this season, joining Max Verstappen, Carlos Sainz, Lando Norris, Charles Leclerc, and George Russell. While Red Bull seemed unbeatable after Bahrain, McLaren and Mercedes are catching up. “Formula One is in a great place right now,” Horner mentioned to reporters. “We’ve seen wins from Lewis, Lando, Max, and Charles Leclerc in recent races.” However, he noted that only Verstappen has been consistently on top. He added that Hamilton’s win was likely very popular with the home crowd.

How did Horner react to Hamilton’s win?

Verstappen finished just behind Hamilton on Sunday after overtaking Norris for second place. Unfortunately for Red Bull, Verstappen’s teammate didn’t score any points due to another tough weekend. Despite these issues, Horner praised Hamilton: “We have to congratulate Lewis on winning this race. He drove very well today and truly deserved it.”

“For any driver to win a race nine times is an outstanding achievement,” he continued. “Winning here in the UK must be extra special for him as a British driver. We tip our hats to him today; he did an excellent job.”

Fans might feel excited about how competitive this season has become.

In conclusion, what do you think about Hamilton’s latest victory?
