Horner: Everybody would be worried by the Racing Point

According to Red Bull Racing team boss Christian Horner, every team on the grid has to watch out for the speed of Racing Point. With the 'pink Mercedes' Sergio Perez was able to climb from 17th place on Sunday to sixth place in the grid.

Perez had more to offer

And if the Mexican didn't damage his front wing during the fight with Alexander Albon, he could finished fourth. Sergio Perez was also able to match the lap times of the race winner Lewis Hamilton.

Worrying about Racing Point

"I think everybody would be worried by the Racing Point", Horner said in a press release where GPblog was also present. "I mean, Perez was quicker than the Mercedes at that point in the race. So it was very impressive pace that they showed."

"I think Alex drove incredibly well to keep them behind. But also if you look at Alex’s pace on that tyre versus Bottas, again there was encouragement that we can take from that in a car that wasn’t carrying any damage", says Horner.
