Horner after P2 at Silverstone 'A great performance'

Published on 07 July 2024 by Julien Lemmen

The Oracle Red Bull Racing-team had a difficult weekend at Silverstone. But, after a good race and an excellent strategy, Max Verstappen still finished in second place.

Team principal Christian Horner reflects after the race: "It was a thrilling race, with one minute looking like we were out of the race and the next minute we were straight back in it. We got the strategy calls exactly right today, especially the point where we went on the inter, the slicks, and then the hard tyre which were definitely all of the right choices out there today. If there had been a few more laps the outcome might have been different but it was still a great drive and performance. The pitwall and the drivers are working really well together, Max and Checo obviously are feeding back what is going on but the pitwall have more information and they are both communicating and able to make the right calls at the right time. We will need to analyse performance as it was all over the board with pace and which team was the quickest on track at any given point, but it balanced out a bit as the track got drier. The British Grand Prix is always a special weekend, and also a big congratulations to Lewis on a great drive at his home track."
