Christian Horner, CEO and team principal of Oracle Red Bull Racing, reflects on the Miami GP sprint qualifying: “It was a very good qualifying for us in the end and it looked for a while in SQ2, on the medium tyre, that we weren't potentially the strongest car. The wind was definitely a factor but I think both drivers did a very good job and to line up first and third was more than we were expecting.”

Horner adds: “You could hear the surprise in Max's voice on the slowdown lap because he didn't feel the lap had actually been good enough to capture the pole. It was just evident that everybody was struggling with the conditions. It all came good in the end and great to be starting on the front, first and third for the sprint race, but still a lot to do.”
