Red Bull team principal Christian Horner is thankful Max Verstappen’s power issues happened during qualifying and not during the Grand Prix.

The Dutch driver qualified P10 after suffering power loss issues during Q3 on Saturday. While the situation is frustrating for Verstappen and the team, Horner sees a positive in the negative situation.

“At least it has happened today and not tomorrow,” Horner told Sky Sports.

“Verstappen felt a lot more comfortable with the balance of the car and I think we were on for a shot at pole. A lock-up into turn 2 on the first run put us on the back foot immediately. Still, we felt confident we could have a crack.

“Unfortunately there was a power unit issue on his out lap. We tried to reset sensors to cleat it but it wasn’t to be. Tenth and 11th… It will be a busy race tomorrow.”
