Horner: No way to protect Verstappen from “obvious” Mercedes strategy | 2019 Hungarian Grand Prix

Red Bull had no defence against Mercedes’ strategy which helped Lewis Hamilton win the Hungarian Grand Prix, says Christian Horner.
Mercedes brought Hamilton in for a second pit stop which Horner says Red Bull were unable to respond to.
Horner said Red Bull’s “bed was made” at that point: Verstappen had to stay out and could not manage his tyres as much as before.
Although Red Bull took the fastest lap of the race, by putting Verstappen on a set of soft tyres at the end of the race, Horner believes Mercedes were simply quicker in Hungary.
Christian Horner: “We had the opportunity to get the fastest lap.”
