Christian Horner, team principal of Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, says after the USA Grand Prix: “It was a really strong drive by Max today. He got a good start and then he picked up some front wing damage on the first lap so we elected to go for a two stop strategy versus Lewis’ one stop.”

“Max was able to keep Bottas in sight throughout the three stints and closed to within a second of Hamilton towards the end of the race. An unlucky yellow flag over the last couple of laps prevented the chance of a Max overtake but nonetheless P3 here in Austin has been the end to a very strong weekend. Congratulations also go to Lewis Hamilton on his historic sixth World Championship which is truly quite a feat and well deserved.”
