Christian Horner: 'He had to give it absolutely everything'

Christian Horner, team principal of Oracle Red Bull Racing, reflects after Friday’s qualifying for the United States Grand Prix: “It looked like we were going to get pole today but then a small lock up at turn 1 put Max on the back foot so he had to give it absolutely everything. He tried, but unfortunately we didn’t quite do it today.”
“Checo struggled with balance slightly but it was tight margins with not a lot in it but it will make for an interesting race on Sunday. We start from P6 and P9 for the race which makes things a little harder for us but there is always an opportunity for victory and we look forward to seeing what Sunday brings."
