Max Verstappen and Alexander Albon qualified third and fifth at the Nurburgring. The head of Red Bull Racing, Christian Horner, is pleased with the result and expects to compete with Mercedes for victory.
Christian Horner “We have good starting positions and good chances in the race. We lost both Friday sessions due to bad weather, so it was important to make the most of Saturday training, especially in such difficult conditions. Max and Alex did a great job. Most of all, I am encouraged that we are closing the gap with Mercedes.
I am very pleased with Alex’s performance – he began to better understand the behavior of the car and is making steady progress. Only at the very end of qualification did Leclair prevent us from conquering the entire second row of the starting grid. Now our goal is to compete with Mercedes for victory. “
