Red Bull team principal Christian Horner claimed everything is fine with Max Verstappen’s car after a disappointing Free Practice 1.
The Dutch driver was unable to complete FP1 after issues with his gearbox, meaning he had his first serious outing during the second practice session. Speaking after FP2, Horner said that, despite the team being behind on track time, Verstappen’s car is fine.
“He lost drive, so we changed the gearbox,” Horner said. “The mechanics did a great job. All is okay. We’re just a bit behind on track time.
“He [Verstappen] was not happy with the set-up, so there’s enough work to do tonight.
“Track time is important. Sometimes results of simulators are not accurate, so then you miss the real experience.”
