Christian Horner reflects on qualifying in Monaco
Published on 26 May 2018 by Johan Peeters
Christian Horner, Red Bull Racing's team principal, had the following to say after qualifying for the Grand Prix of Monaco: “A fantastic performance by Daniel today. He’s been quickest in every session so far this weekend, including the three segments of qualifying to achieve his second pole position at our 250th Grand Prix."
“Unfortunately Max found the unforgiving nature of this circuit in third free practice hitting the barrier in turn 15 resulting in significant damage. The mechanics did an unbelievable job getting the car turned around only to then discover a gearbox leak which necessitated a change and in the time available it just wasn’t possible to get him out on track for qualifying. So, it is bittersweet in some respects but today belonged to Daniel.”
