Christian Horner said Max Verstappen’s criticism of the Las Vegas Grand Prix was ‘refreshing’.
Verstappen has criticized the event and called the street circuit ‘boring’.
Many figures within Formula One disagreed with the Dutchman.
But the Red Bull chief executive said: “Max would really enjoy that race because that’s what he loves and that’s what he’s here for.
“The fact that he won it in an Elvis Presley suit and was singing Viva Las Vegas on an in-lap, although you have to consider that it doesn’t sit comfortably with him, some of the razzmatazz that goes around F1, he enough. It is encouraging that he is willing to speak and give an honest opinion.”
Verstappen did not enjoy the razzmatazz surrounding the event in Sin City, despite winning Sunday’s Grand Prix.
“This is the Eredivisie, while Monaco is the Champions League,” he said, referring to the Dutch football division for the first time compared to the sport of the best European competition.
“There’s nothing wrong with the Eredivisie, by the way, but everyone wants to win the Champions League, right?
“How [the event is put together] and as it looks, there is nothing wrong with it, but [the Champions League] Of course there is a top.”
