Red Bull Racing's Rocquelin about crash: 'Unfortunate, but these things happen'

Published on 28 February 2019 by Bryan van Berlo

Red Bull Racing’s head of race engineering, Guillaume Rocquelin, had the following to say after the seventh and second to last day of testing in Barcelona: "The crash was simply a case of Pierre going slightly wide into Turn 9 and losing control. You’re pretty much flat out there, so if it goes wrong, you’re going to feel it. Thankfully Pierre is OK."

"We have a long night ahead of us in order to get the car ready for tomorrow, however today’s incident shouldn’t compromise our plans. Prior to Pierre’s off, we had a good morning. We worked on how we manage a qualifying session, which is good knowledge for the driver and it gets the pit crew back in the zone."

"The incident was unfortunate but these things happen. We’ll deal with it and move on."
