‘VER­STAP­PEN DRIVE IN BRAZIL ONE OF THE BEST’

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Max Ver­stap­pen’s drive at the rain-hit Brazil­ian Grand Prix has earned the teenager plenty of plau­dits. The Red Bull driver, who was forced to change from the in­ter­me­di­ate tyres to ex­treme wet be­cause of the rain, moved from 14th place to third in the space of just 12 laps. Re­flect­ing on the podium fin­ish in Sun­day’s race, Red Bull chief Chris­tian Horner said: “Well, they don’t get much bet­ter than that. “I think we wit­nessed some­thing spe­cial. “His re­cov­ery was amaz­ing. That was one of the best drives I’ve seen in F1.” Mercedes boss Toto Wolff was equally im­pressed. He said: “It was the Ver­stap­pen show. Re­ally un­be­liev­able driv­ing, great en­ter­tain­ment. Physics are be­ing re­de­fined.”
