Christian Horner stated that Red Bull and Max Verstappen will have the same approach to the Dutch GP as to any other event.

Verstappen was victorious in his home race at Zandvoort last year. The Dutchman was in a tight title fight with Lewis Hamilton at that moment.

The situation changed in 2022. Verstappen is almost 100 points ahead of Sergio Perez and Charles Leclerc in the Drivers’ Championship. Furthermore, he is on a 3-race winning streak.

When asked if Verstappen could enjoy the upcoming weekend more than in 2021, Horner said: “I think you have to keep the pressure on because as soon as you don’t, you start making mistakes.

“So we will approach Zandvoort exactly the same discipline that we have done every Grand Prix so far this year, and there’s no additional activities for Max compared to a standard Grand Prix weekend.

“Of course, there’ll be an awful lot of noise around the circuit, but we’ll try and keep him within a bubble, obviously inside the team, and try and manage expectations.”
