Horner after sprint qualifying in Austria: 'Positive day for us'

Published on 28 June 2024 by Yvonne Huijs

Christian Horner, CEO and team principal of Oracle Red Bull Racing, reflects on the Austrian GP sprint qualifying: "It was a positive day for us today and we saw three great laps put in from Max. Unfortunately, it was a disappointing run for Checo, especially after getting boxed in by Esteban, as there was no chance for him to get a representative lap. Going into SQ3 we thought he would be top five, which is a shame. However, this track is good for overtaking with a few good long straights."

Horner adds: "It’s going to be very hot tomorrow so that should throw up some challenges for all the cars on the grid. Overall, it was a great showing from Max but it’s getting close; McLaren were looking strong and Mercedes were edging closer too, so we are looking forward to seeing what tomorrow brings."
