Red Bull team principal Christian Horner reveals that an hydraulic problem almost costed Sergio Pérez the victory at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

“He was nursing a hydraulic issue,” said Horner. “We were really concerned that the car wouldn’t get to the end of the race which was why he stopped after the chequered flag.”

“[We were] just praying that hyraudlic pressure that we were all glued to the last few laps just stayed there,” he added.

Pérez had admitted post-race that they almost retired the car, but were able to continue to the finish.
