Christian Horner has shared his thoughts about Lewis Hamilton’s impressive pole position at the Qatar Grand Prix.


  • Horner believes that the straight-line speed is not too beneficial for Mercedes at Losail.
  • The Red Bull team principal assumes that Hamilton’s performance in the middle sector made the difference in qualifying.

What he had to say:

  • “I think the load test has done its job, because their straight line speed is under control,” Horner told Sky Sports.
  • “I think that it looks very similar to our straight line speed now, which is good to see. Lewis made all his time in turns 6 and 7. Particularly on that last lap, he had an amazing sector through that sequence of the two slower corners.”
  • “So, from what we seen on the straight line speed, it looks normal. So, just a very strong lap by Lewis.”
