Helmut Marko thinks that AlphaTauri had a faster car than Red Bull at Istanbul, according to Auto Motor und Sport.


  • The Red Bull duo of Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez finished second and third respectively, while AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly finished sixth ahead of teammate Yuki Tsunoda in fourteenth.
  • The Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko surmises that AlphaTauri’s car was better in the damp conditions as they discovered the right alterations to the car.

What he had to say:

  • “If you take out the difference between the drivers, you can say that the AlphaTauri was the faster car, in the special conditions, on this track.”
  • “They simply got the setup better.”
