Christian Horner, team principal of Red Bull Racing, says after qualifying in Baku: “After such promising free practice sessions it’s perhaps slightly underwhelming to be fifth and tenth on the grid. It’s a shame for Max as he was three tenths up on his personal best before losing a bit of time at turn seven and then losing synchronization with the gearbox which prevented any chance of an improvement.”

“Daniel unfortunately clipping the barrier, that we know are pretty unforgiving out here, eliminated him from qualifying on the spot. Qualifying in fifth and tenth we were certainly hoping for more than fifth and tenth but hopefully from those grid positions we can have a competitive race in what will no doubt be an action-packed Grand Prix tomorrow.”
