Red Bull’s Christian Horner calls loss of both cars their ‘worst nightmare’

Ferrari claimed a one-two victory with Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz at Formula One’s season-opening race. The extra points he scored, he noted, might be vital in a long, 23-race season. Having won last season’s title on the final lap of the final race against Hamilton, taking the championship by just seven points, he was aware of how vital every one might be in what may yet be a three-way fight between Red Bull, Ferrari and Mercedes. “It is just disappointing, you always say to yourself and to the team: ‘We have to score points, it doesn’t matter if it’s first or second in the first race,’” he said. For Hamilton and his teammate George Russell, who secured fourth, the points were more than they had expected having been well off the pace of both Ferrari and Red Bull in the race.
