Horner: “It was a solid qualifying session

For a while, it seemed that Max Verstappen could fight for pole with Lewis Hamilton, but in the end he was quite short. Nevertheless, Red Bull Racing can be satisfied afterwards, especially since Alexander Albon lines up next to his teammate. 

“It was a solid qualifying session from both drivers with third and fourth our best result at this circuit in the hybrid era. We thought we might be able to split the two Mercedes with Max but we just missed out by a tenth in the end," says a quite satisfied Christian Horner in the review of Red Bull Racing.

Horner sees opportunities for Red Bull

Although Verstappen indicated after qualifying that he thinks Mercedes is a little too fast this weekend, Horner is still hopeful that they can attack Hamilton and Bottas on Sunday. Especially because Bahrain is known as a circuit with overtaking possibilities.

"Max in third and a good qualifying for Alex to line up alongside him in fourth are great starting positions for tomorrow’s Grand Prix, especially at a track where overtaking is possible, so hopefully we’re set up for an exciting race. It was a good recovery for Alex, particularly after yesterday’s incident, and with fourth he matches his best qualifying result of the season," said Horner.
