Formula 1: Red Bull vow to fight on

Christian Horner says Red Bull are ready to fight for the title

Red Bull supremo Christian Horner has said the team will be doing everything they can to bounce back from their disappointment of losing the Sao Paulo Grand Prix in Brazil.

Lewis Hamilton cut the deficit at the top of the Drivers' Championship to 14 points and is 4/5 to successfully defend his world crown.

Meanwhile, championship leader Max Verstappen, who is 14 points clear in the standings, is 1/1 to come out on top of the most exciting title race for years.

Qatar up next

There are three races remaining with Qatar providing the next stop this weekend. Hamilton is 1/4 to be the inaugural winner at Losail Circuit while Verstappen is 5/1 to win his tenth race of the season.

Hamilton started Sunday's race in tenth position on the grid after receiving a five-place penalty for a new internal combustion engine, but he picked his way through the field.

It's one week until the next one so we'll brush ourselves down.

Verstappen forced the British rider off the track when he attempted to pass him with 23 laps to go, but the 36-year-old forced his way through 11 laps later to cap a memorable victory.

There has been controversy about the legality of the rear wing on Hamilton's Mercedes and Horner admitted Verstappen's Red Bull was unable to keep up with the speed his title rival was able to generate on the straights.

Horner expects Red Bull response

After the showdown in Qatar, the title will be settled in Saudi Arabia on 3rd December and in Abu Dhabi a week later and Horner is confident his team will be ready to bounce back.

Horner said: "I think we put up as big a defence as we could. Max did his best, he raced hard but there was just no chance.

"We had the highs of Mexico and Austin, but it's a tough one having led probably 75 per cent of the race.

"But it's one week until the next one so we'll brush ourselves down and come back fighting."
