But for Mika Hakkinenthis is the package of Red Bull Who is the fastest.
“Red Bull definitely has a faster package than Ferrari”
» The Miami Grand Prix? It was another big win for Max and, when you consider he has won every race he has finished this season, we can say that Red Bull definitely has a faster package than Ferrari. Max’s race was very strong. He made a very good start to take 2nd place from Carlos Sainz and his overtaking of Charles Leclerc on the 9th lap was perfectly executed. The Red Bull had a straight-line speed advantage over the Ferrari, which meant that even when Charles had the benefit of DRS, he was still unable to get back on Max. Charles really pushed hard, but Max was able to defend and pull away. He was totally in control “said the former 1998 and 1999 world champion with McLaren in comments reported by Nextgen-Auto.
