Bringing this thread back from the grave after a year.
Watching F1 Practice today, there was a Heineken ad with Max Verstappen. First time I remember seeing it, though it's apparently not new. I wonder if the fact that Max's car is a Mustang (with loud exhaust) has anything to do with the Red Bull / Ford Powertrains partnership.

Great question Dave, I was wondering the same thing , there does seem to be a subtle hint there that many may miss. Glad F1 is back on, watching practice right now! Interesting that Horner is off talking to Muhammed bin Sulayem instead of on the stand working practice ........drama to return in the Horney Saga!

.....and he is back , shook hands with Muhammed , so the drama may have been short lived. Can't wait for the actual qualification as so many cars have been up towards the top and one wonders how much Red Bull has been sandbagging?

Didn't even think of that connection, but I could see them doing that on purpose.
