Red Bull F1 Leaders “Leclerc’s Spin Sacrifices Max’s Paul” / British Grand Prix Qualifying[F1-Gate .com]

Red Bull F1 motorsport adviser Helmut Marco has criticized the Yellow Jack, which was caused by a spin by Charles Leclerc in the qualifying for the F1 British Grand Prix, at the expense of Max Verstappen’s pole position.

Max Verstappen had the best section in Sector 1 until he encountered Charles Leclerc, who had a spin in Sector 2, but the yellow flag forced him to lift off the accelerator.

“There was a bit of bad luck with the Yellow Flag and Max lost about 0.3-0.4 seconds,” said Christian Horner, Red Bull Racing’s F1 team representative.

As a result, Carlos Sainz Jr. will take his first pole position in the 151st race.

“We were very dominant,” Helmut Marko told Sky Sports after qualifying.

“Because of the Yellow Flag, he had to stop the accelerator. It sacrificed our pole position. We were very dominant, but this happened.”

Still, Max Verstappen still secures the front row in the final on Sunday, starting in front of his major championship rivals Sergio Perez and Charles Leclerc.

Red Bull Racing has given the team confidence by spending an impressive race pace on Friday’s dry practice.

“It’s difficult to overtake here,” Helmut Marko admitted in anticipation of Sunday’s race.

“We are in 2nd (Verstappen) and 4th (Perez), so there is still a lot we can do from a strategic and tactical point of view.”

“I think it will be faster, at least in terms of race pace.”
