Before the 2023 season Formula 1 closed in Abu Dhabi, there was a final controversy between Red Bull and Lewis Hamilton.
First, Christian Hornerhead of the champion team, assured that Lewis Hamilton had offered to replace ‘Checo’ Pérez and accompany Max Verstappen in 2024.
Immediately afterwards, it was the seven-time champion himself who denied the major and declared eternal love to Mercedes.
Of course, perhaps the British man did not expect that Horner he counterattacked by pointing at his father, Anthony Hamilton.
The thing stayed there but two weeks later, before the FIA gala this Friday, Helmut Marko He has referred again to what happened.
According to the advisor, Horner showed him the message in which Hamiton offered himself: “Christian informed me and showed me the text message he received, but I said, ‘Hamilton and Max… that wouldn’t work.’ There was too much action and… how to say it? In 2021… there was tension“.
“On the other hand, we can’t afford to have the two most expensive drivers on the grid in the same team. It’s just never going to happen. So I said to Christian: ‘No way!’“, he said in statements to ‘Motorsport’.
