Red Bull team principal Christian Horner says his team needs a miracle to win the championship title at Abu Dhabi.

Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton are going to fight for the drivers’ title at the upcoming race in the UAE. Both competitors are equal on points. However, Mercedes has an advantage of 28.5 points over Red Bull, making it a complicated task for the Austrian brand to take them over.

Speaking ahead of the race, Horner said his team needs a “miracle” to clinch the title.

“This team has put together a phenomenal campaign this year, we’ve won 10 races,” he said. “We’ve taken Mercedes – and who would have thought that coming into this year – we’ve taken them all the way into the final race; constructors’, we’re on the back foot, we need a miracle to win that.

“We’ve got one more shot to have a go at winning this [drivers’] title with Max and we’ll give it everything we can, we’ll prepare, we’ll regroup. And the guys, they’re not down, they can be proud of the effort that’s gone in, and we’ll see.”
