Christian Horner weighs in on Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez team orders in Baku

Date:


The 32-year-old branded the call “unfair”, but he turned the tables on his teammate with a victory in Monaco. That had Horner insisting before the start in Baku that Red Bull would not use team orders, saying the drivers must work as a team to beat Ferrari.

But this weekend, Perez overtook Leclerc at the start but was told not to jostle with the world champion, who had the quicker car and eventually breezed past him. Horner meanwhile, says that order cannot be classified as team orders.

“I think today wasn’t strictly team orders,” he told Crash.net on Sunday evening. “It was just a question of you’ve got a faster car and a slower car and Max had a significant pace advantage on Checo at that point, and Checo had quite heavy graining on his tyres.
