Horner: 'A good qualifying from both drivers, in very tricky conditions'

Published on 02 July 2022 by Julien Lemmen

Wet weather conditions made for a challenging qualifying session at Silverstone today. Max Verstappen seemed to be on his way to pole position, but he eventually had to settle for second place behind Carlos Sainz. Teammate Sergio Perez finished fourth.

Christian Horner, team principal of Red Bull Racing, reflects after qualifying: "It was a good qualifying today from both drivers, in very tricky conditions. We got a bit unlucky with the yellow flags which meant Max lost around three or four tenths but we’re pleased to be on the front row with Checo up there on the second row, in a session like that, it’s a good place to be. If tomorrow is a straight dry race, then strategy and tyre deg are going to be crucial, this year, we’ve seen our cars can follow closer which is going to be critical through Becketts, but if the beautiful British summer continues tomorrow it could all change so quickly, hopefully we can take the fight to Ferrari.  Congratulations to Carlos today, he’s always been fantastic in the wet even when he was a junior for us, he did a great job and deserved the pole."
