Horner about Canadian Grand Prix: 'Another strong race from Max'

Published on 09 June 2019 by Niels Hendrix

Christian Horner, team principal of Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, says after the Canadian Grand Prix: “Another strong race and a good recovery drive for Max today progressing from ninth to fifth. He lost quite a bit of time in the early laps clearing traffic but running long on the hard tyre was a strategy that worked well. He managed a small brake issue in the last few laps but finished the race comfortably in P5.”

Horner continues: “With Pierre we tried to get the undercut on Daniel during the pit stop, we nearly made it, but he unfortunately got stuck behind Stroll which pretty much ended his race, allowing Hulkenberg to sneak ahead. Fifth and eighth were not the results we were looking for but heads down and the focus is on Paul Ricard.”
