Horner: “Max drove a strong race”

Christian Horner, team principal of Red Bull Racing, says after the Canadian GP: “I think the cool conditions in today’s race were a key factor. Max drove a strong race, defending vigorously at the end against Rosberg to claim fourth place. Unfortunately we just didn’t quite have the range on the tyres today to be able to do a one-stop, so the two-stop was the strategy that we had to adopt.”

“Daniel dropped a place at the start and then was running in tandem with Max before the virtual safety car. After the restart he pitted for the soft tyre being one of the first to pit. Unfortunately a big lock-up a few laps later flat-spotted that tyre, necessitating another stop dropping him behind Kimi and unfortunately we couldn’t find a way past in the remaining laps. Overall a respectable performance at this kind of circuit and I look forward to the new track in Baku in one week’s time.”
