Buemi: It’s great to work with Max

Sebastien Buemi first drove a Red Bull Racing car 16 years ago: in the autumn of 2007 he piloted an RB3 during tests in Jerez. He has worked with this team ever since, including from 2009 to 2011. He competed in Formula 1 for Toro Rosso.

Although the Swiss has achieved his most significant successes in other categories, including winning the Formula E title and winning the World Endurance Championship four times with the Toyota factory team, he still works at the Red Bull simulator in Milton Keynes . The fact that Max Verstappen once again became world champion is also to his credit. But he is not going to celebrate his colleague’s success with champagne.

“It’s not the same as winning on your own. But I am very happy for Max, because his success was worth spending long hours on the simulator,” Buemi, who will be working at the base of the championship team this weekend, said in an interview with the Swiss tabloid Blick. – Within ten minutes after the training we load all received data from the track into the simulator. Then we start going through the setting options that will help Max achieve higher speed in qualifying. For example, there were serious problems due to the wind on Friday.

However, we only make a small contribution to the overall success. Max is an incredible racer. It’s wonderful that we have the opportunity to observe the progress of such an extraordinary individual and work so closely with him. Max can describe the car’s behavior on the track very accurately and always offers reasonable ways to solve the problem.

Amazingly, he never seems to have bad days, is always fast and rarely makes mistakes, even when starting from the middle of the pack. There is currently no one in Formula 1 who is performing at such a high level.”
