Christian Horner assures that Red Bull Racing’s recent issues at the pit stops are down to their own mistakes.
Why it matters: The FIA has introduced a modification in pit stop procedure rules to ensure safety earlier this year.
- Horner has explained what happened at Sergio Perez’s pit stop at the Russian GP.
- The Red Bull team principal confirms that the new rules have not triggered the latest problems.
What he had to say:
- “We had a very slight delay on the wheel-off and then [with] the clutch, he spun up the rear wheel, which then took more time to re-engage the wheel. So that was frustrating.”
- “It wasn’t a TD issue. Unfortunately there was a slight delay in the wheel coming off and the clutch was released whilst he was on the stand and that then just compounded the problem. That’s what cost Sergio.”
