It was a close call for Red Bull Racing: Had to exchange access passes

Of course Red Bull Racing can be satisfied with second place after the Hungarian Grand Prix, a weekend in which almost everything went wrong until the race. However, there was also a highlight for the race. The excellent work of the mechanics to repair Max Verstappen's car on time.

In conversation with Auto Motor und Sport Helmut Marko explains once again what an incredible achievement they have made there. Moreover, it also becomes clear that there was more to this operation than just quick tinkering.

Silverstone has to go better for Red Bull Racing

"The boys worked with incredible precision and speed. Every move was good. We also had to exchange access passes between the mechanics, because not everyone was allowed to be on the grid. The specialist who uses a scanner to examine the carbon parts for damage, for example. What was achieved was unbelievable."

For Marko it was the confirmation that the team is still a top team despite the inferior performance on the track. In Silverstone that should also come out on the asphalt. "We should be stronger there. You can't use the speed from qualifying anyway during the race. Based on strategy, we're close."
