Christian Horner reflects on qualifying in Monaco

Published on 25 May 2019 by Johan Peeters

Christian Horner, team principal of Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, reflects after qualifying in Monaco: “Third and fifth are decent grid positions for tomorrow and it’s our best qualifying of the season to date. Max was extremely impressive in Q1 and quickest in Q2. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the cleanest Q3 for us with traffic on his preparation lap. But nonetheless, the second row here on the clean side of the grid is a great place to be starting the Monaco Grand Prix.

“Pierre has had an impressive weekend so far, qualifying a close fifth. This strong performance represents his best ever qualifying result in F1. The forecast also looks a little bit variable for tomorrow so that could spice things up.”
