Red Bull F1 representative, excited about the change of generations of drivers “F1 is in a wonderful state”[F1-Gate .com]

Christian Horner, team representative for Red Bull F1, believes F1 is in “great condition” with the rise of younger drivers.

The 2021 F1 World Championship was won by 24-year-old Max Verstappen, with seven F1 World Champions 37-year-old defeating Lewis Hamilton.

Kimi Raikkonen (42 years old) has retired and now the oldest F1 grid is Fernando Alonso (40 years old). Including another F1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel (34 years old), there are only 6 people over 30 years old, Valtteri Bottas (32 years old), Daniel Ricciardo (32 years old), Sergio Perez (32 years old) , The other 14 people on the 2022 F1 grid will all be in their twenties.

Christian Horner was asked to choose an F1 driver who believes to represent the next generation. Not surprisingly, Max Verstappen is the first choice, but he nominates a few drivers alongside his own. The F1 grid, which is undergoing a generational change, says it will be in excellent condition for the next 10 years.

“There are a lot of exciting young drivers and I think F1 is in great shape at the moment,” Christian Horner told World Is One News.

“Of course, Max is 24, but Charles Leclerc (24), George Russell (23), who will join Mercedes this year, and Lando Norris (22) look exciting. Carlos Sainz (27) There is also a year old) “

“There are a lot of drivers of the same generation and they will be there for the next 10 years or so. I think it’s great for sports. It’s great for competition and it’s exciting to see how it unfolds. I think that’s the case. “

Red Bull has signed Max Verstappen for at least two more seasons. Motorsport adviser Helmut Marko has revealed that negotiations are underway to further extend the contract.

Christian Horner said new F1 World Champion Max Verstappen is still on the up curve.

Asked why Max Verstappen is such a tough driver, Christian Horner said Verstappen never retired and is constantly trying to improve his position on the track.

“I think it’s his hungry, his determination, his natural ability,” said Christian Horner.

“He never gives up. He’s a fighter and will never let go of any chance. That makes him stand out as an exciting driver, a great driver.”

“Everyone knows that if Max puts him behind, he’ll attack. I think that’s why he has big followers in F1 and will continue to grow.”
