Horner: 'A disappointing qualification'

Published on 30 July 2022 by Julien Lemmen

The team of Oracle Red Bull Racing had a disappointing qualifying session for the Hungarian Grand Prix. Max Verstappen suffered a loss of power on his final flying lap, causing him to end up in P10. Teammate Sergio Perez dropped out after Q2 and finished eleventh.

Team principal Christian Horner reflects after qualifying: "It was a disappointing qualification. Firstly losing Checo in Q2 after encountering some traffic and then unfortunately Max suffering technical issues. We felt Max had a chance at a pole, he seemed a lot happier than he was yesterday with the balance of the car, however a lock up on the first run of Q3 put him on the back foot and then a power related issue on the 2nd run prevented him from posting a representative lap time. Unfortunately we are out of position in 10th and 11th, we will push hard from there and look forward to the race tomorrow, but in the meantime, congratulations to George Russell on his first ever pole.”
