Red Bull Throws Lavish Party on £20 Million Yacht
Max Verstappen celebrated his 2021 Formula One title win in style, partying on a £20 million yacht in Abu Dhabi. The victory marked Verstappen's first championship win and Red Bull's first since Sebastian Vettel in 2013. Red Bull boss Christian Horner spilled the details of the extravagant celebration on Sky's A League of Their Own.
Verstappen's Wild Night of Celebration
According to Horner, the post-race party was a wild affair. With Covid restrictions in place, the team had been unable to celebrate throughout the season. So when the opportunity arose, the entire Red Bull team and Verstappen let loose. Horner described the Dutch driver as "completely off his face" and "absolutely wasted."
Locked Out of the House for Christmas
While the celebrations were unforgettable, they also had some consequences. Horner revealed that after the party, everyone ended up getting Covid. Due to the close proximity of the race to Christmas, Horner found himself locked out of his own house for the holiday season.
Revealing the Circumstances of the Title Win
During the interview, Horner also shared some insights into the circumstances surrounding Verstappen's title win. He mentioned how Mercedes made a crucial mistake by leaving Lewis Hamilton on older tires. Additionally, Verstappen had to battle cramps towards the end of the race. These factors, along with the investigation conducted by motorsport chiefs, contributed to Verstappen's historic victory.
