Horner on the start: "Max had nowhere to go"

Red Bull Racing had high hopes for the race in Singapore as the streettrack is suited to the RB13. After a tense race, only one trophy will be brought back to Milton Keynes thanks to a second place finish for Daniel Ricciardo. Red Bull Racing teamprincipal Christian Horner, gives his opinion on the startcrash which eliminated Max: 

“It was enormously frustrating to lose Max at the start of the race, in an incident that quite clearly had nothing to do with him. Sebastian moving to the left, Kimi moving to the right sandwiched Max and there was nowhere for him to go. It's just incredibly unlucky for him to be eliminated like that. Vettel probably couldn't see that Kimi was on the other side of Max. He's been aggressive with Max, while Kimi's did the same from the other side, and that resulted in the accident. With Daniel we scored another second place for us in Singapore, but a strong podium to take away considering how things were looking after the first 15 laps."
