Christian Horner, Oracle Red Bull Racing team principle, says after the Baku sprint, in which Max Verstappen finished third with a damaged car, after being hit by George Russell: “Hard racing today. There was unfortunately some contact which resulted in quite a bit of damage to the side pod and that cost Max in performance. Sunday is what it is about though. Max starts on the front row and with a very good chance. He is a very competitive driver and will come back strong tomorrow afternoon.”
