Horner: In Mexico we had to win a double

The head of Red Bull Racing Christian Horner has said that Gran Pri of Mexico left contradictory impressions. He is glad to Max Verstappen's victory, but regrets that the team has missed a victorious double because of problems with Daniel Ricciardo's car.

Question: What impressions of a race?

Christian Horner: Contradictory.

Question: Do you have already found out what has happened to Daniel car?

Christian Horner: It seems that problem with hydraulics. The first suspicions have appeared approximately on the sixth circle. We should send everything to Great Britain that in general to analyse everything.

Question: Daniel has been so upset that he has said on air of one of TV channels that the car is damned, and he is ready to concede it to Pierre Gasli on two remained races...

Christian Horner: He is very upset with a race, and he can be understood. But it is an offensive situation not only for him, but also for all team, we counted on a victorious double. We have suffered a shattering failure. As I have told, the sweet taste of a victory spoils bitterness because of Daniel Ricciardo's descent.

the Fantasy that Max has perfectly held a race. But I am sure that Daniel could constrain Sebastian on the remained circles. Ricciardo's disappointment can be understood. I hope that in two remained races this period of bad luck will end.

Question: Did you talk to Daniel?

Christian Horner: As you understand, he wanted to leave the route as soon as possible. We will talk a little later when everything calms down.

Question: During this week-end your car was the best. In last year's of Gran Pri of Mexico she dominated too. Such impression that she suits features of this route and its height above sea level. Why here Renault shortcomings aren't so obvious - their engines aren't worse than the others on this route at all?

Christian Horner: We have to pay tribute to our partners: during this week-end in Renault have given us the engine which in such conditions is as competitive as motors of our rivals. It has allowed us to win the first row of a starting lattice, to conduct dense fight and to win Gran Pri, dominating in a race.

Theoretically, during this week-end we had to win a victorious double. It seems to me, the arrangement of this route highly above sea level limits possibilities of some of our rivals and creates such conditions in which they are competitive for Renault. For this reason we have paid so much attention to preparation for this race and in advance penalties left to receive in the order one more version B of this engine for this week-end.

Question: What spirit did Max have? He has become angry when on Saturday were ahead of him in fight for a poll...

Christian Horner: You saw that he very much was upset. He hasn't in the best way passed the second series of circles in the qualification final, and Daniel was successful in a magnificent fast circle. Max has told that he slept no more than three hours last night - all this turned at him in the head. But when he has arrived to the route on Sunday, it was visible that it is that guy, to
