Red Bull team principal Christian Horner says that Lewis Hamilton is wrong to underestimate Daniel Ricciardo as a 2018 title contender. Hamilton recently outlined who he feels will challenge him the most in 2018, naming Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso and Max Verstappen.
Red Bull is hoping to start next season with a title contending car after failing to produce a car capable of matching Mercedes and Ferrari in 2017. With Hamilton believing Ricciardo’s teammate Verstappen will be a threat next year, Horner doesn’t see why the Australian shouldn’t be mentioned.
“Lewis would be very foolish to underestimate Daniel,” Horner told Sky Sports News.
