Christian Horner believes that Red Bull and Mercedes’ performances are almost the same, stating that only 0.1 seconds separate them.
Why it matters: Red Bull and Mercedes are fighting for the title, and the gap between the two outfits is extremely close at every Grand Prix.
- Lewis Hamilton said after the Dutch GP that Red Bull is now faster than the Silver Arrows thanks to the new upgrades. However, Horner still believes the gap is “massively tight”.
[We’re] qualifying within a tenth. We seem to have a tenth, maybe two-tenths advantage in the race I would say at this venue. So we need to make sure we grab every opportunity. Today we did that, under massive pressure but it was great to get our eighth win of the year.Christian Horner
