Jos Verstappen has heaped praise on the Red Bull team for their strategy calls during the Hungarian Grand Prix, along with hailing the racing efforts of his race-winning son Max.
Jos Verstappen was full of praise for his son and the Red Bull team following Max Verstappen’s ninth victory of the season in Hungary.
Max Verstappen extended his championship lead to 80 points after winning the Hungarian Grand Prix from 10th place on the grid.
Max’s father – former Formula 1 driver Jos – commented that he didn’t need to give any advice ahead of Max’s against-the-odds victory from the fifth row of the grid.
“He did a fantastic job,” enthused Jos to Viaplay.
“I don’t need to tell him anything, the good thing is that he understands himself.”
Verstappen praises Red Bull pit strategy
Jos elaborated that he thought the performance of the team and driver were both key factors in the victory.
“I think the strategy was good, starting on the right tyres, stopping at the right moment, passing the people easily, like he always does,” Verstappen added.
“We had a good race car. We could see they’re already in qualifying. Certainly the pace was there.”
