Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner believes that the United
States Grand Prix will be made more “interesting” by Max
Verstappen’s qualifying tribulations. The Dutchman’s final effort
in Q3 saw him jump to the head of the timesheets for pole position,
only for it to be stripped after he was found guilty of exceeding
track limits on the exit of Turn 19. Verstappen dropped down to
sixth place as a result with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc securing his
third pole position of the season. Speaking to Viaplay after the
session, Horner said: “It looked like we had the pole. “A small
lock up at turn 1 put Max on the back foot, so he had to give
absolutely everything. “He tried, but unfortunately we didn’t quite
do it today, but it makes for an interesting race on Sunday.”
‘Still an opportunity’ Red Bull has only been defeated across a
race distance once this season when it struggled for form around
the Singapore streets, allowing Ferrari to snatch the win.
Verstappen’s strong run this year has had very few blips and Horner
highlighted the challenge of maintaining top form all year long.
“It’s not easy to have the car perfect across all spectrums,” he
said. “A shame we didn’t get that last lap, he would’ve got the
pole, he hasn’t, so starting P6 we have a bit of work to do. When
asked if the race win was still possible, Horner replied: “[It’s]
harder, but always an opportunity.”
