Max drama ‘Want to win on track’ – Red Bull chief Christian Horner hits out at Italian GP ending behind controversial safety car

CHRISTIAN HORNER has hit out at the ending of the Italian Grand Prix, after a safety car denied fans as grandstand finish. The Red Bull team chief told Sky Sports F1: “We don’t want to win a race under a safety car. Bringing in the safety car would have set up a sprint finish between Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc, who were both vying for the lead of the race. Verstappen ended up winning the race and extending his lead at the top of the Championship, while Leclerc and George Russell finished second and third respectively. Despite the danger Verstappen’s lead would have been under, Horner was bullish about their chances of winning the race even if it had resumed. “We had the faster car and we would have liked to win the race on the track, not behind the safety car,” he added.
