Red Bull, candidate
According to the statements of the seven-time World Champion, the Red Bull team is one of the main candidates to stay with the first dates of the championship, especially after the preseason tests. Max Verstappen was the fastest driver in the tests and together with Yuki Tsunoda (AlphaTauri), they got the most out of the engine Sling.
“Red Bull is very strong. It’s going to be a different machine or animal this year with, I think, a really good and strong line-up of the two drivers, and I think in a really good car. After seeing them win the last race, presumably they will be there. It’s going to be a great long battle with them throughout the year, ”said Hamilton.
