Zak Brown

Red Bull has been on every team’s radar since Christian Horner’s controversy broke free. Although the team has been unstoppable on track, internal unrest has been the talking point. Adding to the misery, Adrian Newey’s departure is a massive blow to the team’s integrity. Notably, Newey was a crucial part of their design team. He was responsible for designing the most powerful cars for RBR. Thus, his exit might have left the door open for others. 

The McLaren boss, Zak Brown, is not holding back as he fires a verbal shot at the ongoing mayhem. McLaren is among Red Bull’s top competitors, as they breached the Miami fortress. Red Bull never lost the Miami GP until last Sunday, when Lando Norris went past Verstappen to clinch the trophy. As a result, Zak Brown outspokenly criticizes RBR’s management turmoil.

The RBR spearhead advised his rivals to focus on their performance instead of engaging in futile verbal disputes.

While Brown is not shy of firing shots at Red Bull, Max Verstappen retaliates. The Dutchman feels Brown behaves like a typical rival, taking advantage of a vulnerable situation.
