Only Ferrari had a worse day than Red Bull

Martin Brundle saw a spectacular race last Sunday with a surprising winner. A race that Formula 1 needed. For Red Bull it was a lot less and according to Brundle there was only one team with an even worse day.

Only Ferrari worse

The analyst writes in his column for Sky Sports about the day of Verstappen in Monza and the disappointing result. It should have been the day when the Red Bull team would take its chance because everything went wrong at Mercedes. Things turned out differently for a while. In addition to the Dutchman, teammate Alexander Albon also had a day to quickly forget.

"Only Ferrari had a worse day than Red Bull. Max Verstappen had a poor start and dropped out in lap 30 with a technical gremlins. Albon had a few skirmishes with other cars to end up being 15 of 16 runners, whilst having to soak up Gasly, the man he replaced, winning the race".

Brundle sees a comparison with twelve years ago. The day Toro Rosso won a race for the first time. "A bittersweet day for the Red Bull team, similar to the day Vettel won the Italian Grand Prix in a Toro Rosso in 2008.

Reverse starting position

Brundle also spoke out again about a reversed grid: "Seeing normally front-running cars out of position and fighting through the pack, made me immediately think again about occasional reverse championship-standing Saturday qualifying races in order to set the main race grid". Ross Brawn commented on such a change earlier this week on Saturday.
