I would be on board with this line of thinking if they were racing another team for the title. They are not. This is a Red Bull championship. Checo is not credibly improving Alonso's or Leclerc's championship chances by taking points from Max. This is purely about Max being the Chosen One at Red Bull. I can't really blame them: if I paid someone €55 million, I would want to feel that I was justified in doing it. But Horner could at least show some support for his other driver. He knows just as well as we all do that he's not going to win the championship anyway.
