Christian Horner: "Front row was potentially achievable today"

Published on 24 March 2018 by Johan Peeters

Christian Horner, Red Bull Racing's team principal, had the following to say after qualifying for the Australian Grand Prix: “After the rain this morning we had a dry Qualifying, and it was certainly very tight between ourselves and the Ferraris. Unfortunately Max on his last lap made a small mistake at turn 13 that cost him a couple of tenths otherwise the front row was potentially achievable today.”

“Daniel also did not have a perfect Q3, finishing in P5 and unfortunately with the penalty he incurred yesterday will be starting in P8. We’ve elected to start on a different tyre strategy to our competitors and hopefully that will provide different options for tomorrow.”
