Max Verstappen struggled with DRS problems during qualifying and didn't seem to be completely rid of them even Sunday morning. Meanwhile, the problems have been solved, according to Christian Horner at Viaplay.

"We had a small problem yesterday and in consultation with the FIA we took some precautions," says the Red Bull Racing team boss.

Horner not worried about wing Verstappen

No reason to worry then for Verstappen, who will probably need his DRS in the race. "Everyone is pushing, we saw a chassis change for Sainz, everyone is looking for the limits," Horner continued.

"I'm less worried about the wing, more about the tyre set-up because it's so hot," he adds. In that area, Red Bull has been performing well lately, even better than Ferrari, but the Italian racing stable has also been working hard on the F1-75's tire management.
