Championship not over after French GP: Marc Priestley
Max Verstappen secured his maiden French Grand Prix after the dutch overtake the 7-time time world champion with just two laps remaining.
The Milton Keynes-based team used a two-stop strategy to beat Lewis Hamilton. After this victory Red Bull have extended their lead over Mercedes by 37 points in the Constructors’ Championship.
Meanwhile, former McLaren mechanic Marc Priestley believes that the title race is not over after Red Bull secured a double podium win at French Grand Prix.
“If you look historically, Lewis tends to look after his tyres a little bit better than Max,” said the former McLaren mechanic, Marc Priestley.
“I don’t think that what we saw on Sunday was absolutely definitive, that the championship is over and that Red Bull has the best car.
“I think Red Bull have a very strong car, but so do Mercedes on the right day and how many times in the past have we seen Mercedes come up against problems or weaknesses in their car and yet go ahead and work really hard to overcome those,” added Marc Priestley.
