Red Bull’s Helmut Marko called qualifying for the Mexican Grand Prix a “bitter disappointment” as both of his cars missed out on the front row.


  • The Red Bull advisor blamed Tsunoda, stating the Japanese “took out both” of his cars with the last-minute incident.
  • Marko supposes Red Bull will be better in race trim.

What he said:

  • “This was very good bluffing from Mercedes. We failed to get the tires in the right temperature window. And then there was that incident with Tsunoda, which took out both of our cars.”
  • “I think we would have been very close or maybe in between. But the superiority that was there before is gone. It will be a very difficult race.”
  • “I suppose we will be better again in race trim. But still” bitter disappointment.”
