For Dietrich Mateschitz: Red Bull Racing ahead of the World Championship / Formula 1 title


After the news of Dietrich Mateschitz’s death, Max Verstappen said: “We want to show a race in Texas that would make Didi proud.” Red Bull Racing is close to winning the Constructors’ Cup.

25-year-old Dutchman Max Verstappen secured his second World Drivers’ Championship title at the Japan Grand Prix in Suzuka. Then the GP star said: “Now I want to help Red Bull Racing win the Constructors’ Cup.”

At the Circuit of the Americas (COTA), the will to win has become stronger, because 32 times GP winner Max Verstappen says: “After the death of Dietrich Mateschitz, we want to show a race that would make him proud.”

Nothing would be more beautiful in the memory of the visionary entrepreneur than the fifth victory of the Red Bull Racing Constructors’ Cup (after 2010 to 2013).

And it works like this: If Verstappen and Pérez finish ahead of Ferrari at the next US Grand Prix in Austin (Texas), RBR can no longer take the championship.

But even with a one-two for Ferrari, 3rd and 4th would still be enough for Red Bull Racing to win the Constructors’ Cup for the fifth time after 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Of course, there are several combinations of results from the Red Bull Racing and Ferrari drivers in Texas. In short, today the lead of RBR is 165 points. If this lead after the US GP is at least 147 points, Red Bull Racing is the champion.

Meanwhile, for the first time in the turbo hybrid era of Formula 1 since 2014, a team other than the Mercedes-Benz Cup would win.

The starting position is exciting: Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz starts the race from pole position, followed by last year’s winner Max Verstappen. Sergio Pérez is ninth on penalties, Charles Lercer is 12th on the grid.
