Horner picks key moment in Red Bull driver fight

Horner picks key moment in Red Bull driver fight

Christian Horner has admitted that the 2023 Miami Grand Prix was a huge moment in his Red Bull team's dynamic .

Sergio Perez fell away as the year progressed, despite winning two of the opening four races for Red Bull.

Despite question marks over the security of his seat for 2024, Red Bull boss Christian Horner offered support and encouragement in reiterating his commitment to Perez at the end of last season.

With a tighter fight expected this year, Perez will be required to fire on all cylinders if Red Bull are to secure their third consecutive constructors’ world championship.

Miami the key turning point

While discussing his driver’s performances, Red Bull’s long-standing team principal shared his thoughts on when Perez started to struggle.

“Miami, for me, it was a big turning point,” Horner told Speedcafe. “For Checo, psychologically that was a massive blow for him that weekend.

“So, when you look back at the different races, he [Verstappen] was remarkable.”

While hunting a Red Bull record-matching fourth consecutive drivers’ championship in 2024, beating Max Verstappen may prove to be an insurmountable task for Sergio Perez.

In the last year of his Red Bull contract, he will be keen to prove to Red Bull that he can back the Dutchman and the team up as the chasing pack closes in on them.
