Lewis Hamilton blasted for ‘selective memory’ by Red Bull chief Christian Horner
Red Bull chief Christian Horner has accused Lewis Hamilton of having a “selective memory” after his comments on Max Verstappen’s dominance.
The Dutchman has won 17 of the 20 races so far this season, while Red Bull have only been beaten to victory once in 2023.
It continues a dominant two years for the manufacturer with Verstappen having sewn up three consecutive world titles to establish himself as the sport’s most dominant driver.
Verstappen’s success follows a long period where Mercedes led the way, with Hamilton winning six Drivers’ Championships in seven years between 2014 and 2020.
The Brit expressed his concern after the Brazilian Grand Prix last weekend that Red Bull were “so far clear” that other teams would struggle to close the gap and provide a genuine title challenge.
But having enjoyed his own spell at the top of the sport, Horner believes that Hamilton should be careful passing comment on his team’s dominance.
“I feel like he’s got selective memory,” said Horner of Hamilton on the Eff Won with DRS podcast.
“So you know, some of the winning that they did in that period was just obscene. We’ve had a good run for a couple of years, but the one guy that shouldn’t be saying that, I would think, is Lewis.”
