F1 Twitter calls out Red Bull team boss for his picture with F1 bosses

Seeing the photo, many fans on Twitter hinted that the FIA ​​might have colluded with Red Bull in Abu Dhabi to help them win the title, and the same can happen again this year. Fans then posted their mixed reactions about Horner celebrating Monaco’s triumph with the F1 hierarchy.

It is a little harsh of F1 fans on Twitter to accuse a team principal of conspiring with F1 bosses. Any team can invite their bosses to celebrate their triumph on one of the biggest weekends of the year. Also inviting them won’t guarantee that Red Bull will take home the 2022 world championship.

“It doesn’t matter to us which of the two is world champion. Of course, the constructors’ is enormously important. But whether it’s Max or Checo, they’re both Red Bull drivers, and they’ve both got the same chance.”

“Of course, it’s a long, long season, and it will have its ebbs and flows. But it’s great to have both drivers right at the sharp end,” said Christian.

It would be interesting to see if the team allows both drivers to race freely on the track. Moreover, Checo might not face another Barcelona-like situation again from Red Bull. Let’s see who takes the championship in 2022.
