Helmut Marko believes that the Dutch GP race day has been the best day as Red Bull advisor.
Marko has been the Red Bull advisor since 2005, but he thinks that his best day in this position has come this Sunday during the Dutch GP, won by Max Verstappen.
“This is the best day ever in my role as Red Bull advisor. It’s unbelievable!” he told RacingNews365.com.
“This performance of the team, of Max, with such an audience. What more could you ask for? It’s fairytale-like.”
Marko was also happy to see Verstappen overcome strategic disadvantage and win the battle against Mercedes drivers.
“Hamilton went on the attack and it was all about not asking too much of the tires. Max did a great job and we were not in any danger after Lewis’ two undercut attempts.”
“It was indeed dangerous [when Bottas was in front of us], but thank God his tires were all over the place by then. That is why he made mistakes.
“It was two against one, which was a trauma for us. But with the sovereign Max, we still managed to win.”
