Team boss Christian Horner says his Red Bull team is not getting carried away, despite their lead in the F1 world championship.
The win in Singapore next month means driver Max Verstappen’s title for a second consecutive season, thanks to his 11 wins from 16 races.
Horner, however, downplays any talk of completing a winning run in the final rounds of the season.
Christian Horner is just concentrating on every race as it comes in this season’s championship
“That’s a huge demand and (there is) a huge variety of circuits.” The Brit told Motorsport.
Compared to Monza, Singapore has the most corners on the calendar. It’s bumpy, it’s a street track, so it’s a very different challenge.”
“We are in a great position in the championship. But we’re going to attack every race and do our best, then the points will come.
‘But you know, we were even quick in Spa, Zandvoort, Monza and Budapest. So on different tracks the car performs very well.”
Max Verstappen could achieve his second word title if he wins the Singapore Grand Prix next month
Verstappen could keep his world championship crown if he scores 22 points more than nearest rival Charles Leclerc when the season resumes under the spotlight in Singapore next month.
Teammate Sergio Perez is currently third in the championship, giving Red Bull a significant lead in the constructors’ championship as well.
Horner’s team currently leads Leclerc’s Ferrari with 139 points, entering the final six races of the season.
