Re­nault’s F1 chief Cyril Abite­boul be­lieves Red Bull’s ap­proach to us­ing young driv­ers is a les­son to the rest of F1. Red Bull’s young driver scheme has brought many tal­ents into F1, but has also been ruth­less in drop­ping them. Red Bull courted crit­i­cism when it swapped Daniil Kvyat and Max Ver­stap­pen, but Abite­boul said in the wake of Ver­stap­pen’s Span­ish GP win: “We’re not sur­prise [by Ver­stap­pen’s win] as we worked with him be­fore, but what’s more im­pres­sive is Red Bull’s strat­egy over­all. Their ca­pac­ity to go ex­treme, go for a tar­get, the best, what­ever it takes, what­ever peo­ple think. Af­ter the crit­i­cism it is a big les­son to F1.”
