The head of the Red Bull Racing Christian Horner is confident that the Austrian team still would have won the Grand Prix of Malaysia, even if the Ferrari drivers started from the front row of the grid.
Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen looked to be the fastest for most part of the weekend in Sepang, but they suffered setbacks due to problems with the powerplant Vettel failed to participate in qualifying, but Raikkonen didn’t come to the start of the race.
During the race Vettel made his way from 20th place to fourth, but Horner is not sure that the pace of German was higher than that of race winner max Verstappen.
“I think we had the advantage in pace over all machines, – quotes Christian AUTOSPORT.com. Sebastian was the fastest in the end of the race because that made their way from the bottom to the top [using Supersoft tyres for the final leg].
But I have not seen that on a clean track, he showed some kind of over temp on the tires Supersoft or Soft. Throughout the weekend our car was in good shape.
In Sepang we had less downforce than others. For example, we don’t have a T-shaped wing, we managed to find a very good settings. Moreover, our drivers were driving very fast.”
