Red Bull motorsport consultant Helmut Marko commented on the results of the Miami Grand Prix, which ended with the Milton Keynes team’s fourth win of the season.
Q: How do you rate the performance of Max Verstappen in the race?
Helmut Marko: We saw Max at his best. Just a feast for the eyes, as he overtook Kevin Magnussen and Charles Leclerc.
Question: But overtaking partner Sergio Perez made you nervous?
Helmut Marko: The situation remained under control, although there was no need to fight like that. On the other hand, we allow our riders to fight if there is no danger behind one of the rivals, and I support this.
Question: Your riders have pleased the VIP guests of the team, right?
Helmut Marko: Exactly. Imagine if Max started from pole. We would then see a boring race.
Question: Do you know who last won a race before Max, starting from ninth place?
Helmut MarkoA: No, tell me.
Question: Niki Lauda in Dijon in 1984.
Helmut Marko: Very interesting. I will tell Max about this, because he is interested in non-banal statistics.
Question In the race, Max overtook a partner who started from pole. The question, which of your pilots will become a champion, can be considered closed?
Helmut MarkoA: But it has always been known. There are street tracks, for example, in Baku, where Sergio is very strong, but in Miami, Max taught everyone a lesson. No one can take care of the tires like him, to set the best time on the last laps.
Question: Do you feel sorry for rivals from Mercedes and Ferrari after the fourth winning double of the season?
Helmut Marko: I wonder what new things they will bring to Imola and if anything will come of it. If we attack at full strength, then they are already very far behind.
