Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Max Ver­stap­pen has put his stel­lar per­for­mance in the soak­ing wet Brazil­ian GP down to hours spent kart­ing in the wet. The drive also led many team bosses claim­ing the per­for­mance was one of the best they’d seen. Red Bull Rac­ing boss Chris­tian Horner said: “That was one of the best drives I’ve ever seen in F1 to be hon­est, his re­cov­ery was amaz­ing. The way he drove for the last 15 laps was in­cred­i­ble. He was us­ing dif­fer­ent bits of Tar­mac, look­ing for the grip, weav­ing and bob­bing be­hind the safety car. He was us­ing all those kart­ing lines, all that ex­pe­ri­ence. He was fear­less.”
