Drama about Red Bull and Fernando Alonso
DFormula 1 doesn’t have to worry. It does not get boring. That’s what Red Bull stands for with its thunderbolt. Won the second Grand Prix of the season Sergio Perez in Saudi Arabia in front of world champion Max Verstappen, who had won in front of his teammate at the start in Bahrain. Admittedly, this speaks against the initial thesis. If it wasn’t for the one point lead for the Dutchman. Marginal, but expression of a difference in the team with explosive power.
Verstappen, unperturbed by his race to catch up from 15th to second place, acted as a surly chief driver after the race. Bitching publicly about Saturday’s driveshaft problem that had set him back so far. He responded to the team’s indirect request to bring the car to the finish line gently with a full throttle tour at the last moment to win the extra point for the “fastest race lap”. Pérez, obediently sticking to the strategists’ time schedule, was no longer able to react. Now let’s talk. No matter what peace sign rises. There will be an aftermath, eventually, down the track. Exciting.
