Max Verstappen: “To turn it around like that, I would have never imagined that"

Red Bull impressed again this season, although many were skeptical if they could repeat the success of 2021. Red Bull F1 chief Horner is overjoyed considering they had many problems. “I think as a team, we got these regulations right,” said Christian Horner, as quoted by autosport.com “Considering we were the last team to transition onto them, considering what happened last year, I think our team has done an amazing job in coming out with such a competitive car”.

It seems that Red Bull were afraid of how this season would look like, but in the end, everything turned out for the best for them. Christian Horner added: “If you’d offered us this at the beginning of the season when we really felt we were on the back foot with the biggest regulations change in the last 40 years, I don’t think anybody could have envisaged what’s happened this year on track and off-track”.

Max Verstappen and the title

Max Verstappen won the title again, and it's really impressive how good he's been this season. Last season it was much more difficult for him to win the title, but this season he was more convincing.

Experience seems to play an important role. The Dutchman is already focused on the next season and a new title. “To turn it around like that, I would have never imagined that, like nobody in the team,” said Verstappen.

“But it's been really enjoyable to be part of this team. We have a lot of fun. Of course, we focus on the performance but you also need to really enjoy the moment, appreciate the moment, and I think we definitely did that.

We will do, but we are already also focusing on next year. You always say you try to do better. I know it's hard to do a lot better than this [year] but you should always try to aim for that."
