Jos Verstappen says Christian Horner saga risks Red Bull ‘being torn apart’

A defiant Horner said on Saturday night that he is “absolutely confident” he will stay on as Red Bull boss for the remainder of the Formula One season after overseeing Verstappen lead a one-two finish from teammate Sergio Pérez at the opening round in Bahrain. But the 51-year-old father of Red Bull’s three-time world champion continued: “That wouldn’t make sense. Wolff said Red Bull and Verstappen Jr are in a different galaxy after the Dutchman crushed the opposition at the season-opener. The 26-year-old world champion won by 22 seconds from his own Red Bull teammate Sergio Pérez, who used identical machinery at the Sakhir circuit. “Max is not in a different league but he’s in a different galaxy, the performance is extraordinary,” said Wolff. Last season Red Bull won 21 of the 22 races and Verstappen won 19 of those. When asked if he believed the three-time defending champion could win every race, Wolff agreed that on this form, with the Red Bull proving to be so dominant, it was easily conceivable.
