Bull on top

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Former Red Bull Rac­ing man Mark Web­ber has backed his coun­try­man Daniel Ric­cia­rdo to come out on top over ris­ing star Max Ver­stap­pen this year. Ric­cia­rdo, who has started 109 grands prix, goes head-to-head with the im­pres­sive Ver­stap­pen, who has started just 40 GPS, for their first full cam­paign to­gether this year. “It will be tight, as it was at the end of last year,” said Web­ber when asked who he thought had the up­per hand at his former team. “I think Daniel has more com­po­sure. Ob­vi­ously that ex­pe­ri­ence will be very use­ful for him, par­tic­u­larly early in the cham­pi­onship. But it’s go­ing to be a good bat­tle.”
