The Grand Prix of Russia in 2016 and what happened the next two weeks is unlikely to be forgotten by the fans. Then Daniil Kvyat, twice rammed Sebastian Vettel at the start of the race, was demoted to the Toro Rosso. The head of the Red Bull Racing told Autopartsway that decision was not the most difficult in his career as a team Manager.
“It was a very difficult time – began Christian. I remember that he told Daniel about the translation in the Toro Rosso. He was devastated and very upset, but he understood everything. And all-taki the decision was correct, with the current pair of pilots, despite their temperament, I am very comfortable to work with.
But you know, those events with Quatum was the hardest of my career in management. The most difficult part for me was to tell pilots to return to the pits after the installation of the circle in Indianapolis in 2005. And all that story with the Michelin tires was extremely nervous.
But these situations are part of my job, I’m ready for him and did not want to change anything.
Especially now, when I see positive changes in our sport, for example, in the part regarding fans. Whether these changes, only time will tell, but so far so good”.
Horner also answered the question of what he meant, saying that Fernando Alonso throughout his career, received the wrong advice.
“Fernando came at the wrong time in the wrong team, and had the opportunity to come to Red Bull in 2009, but he didn’t, then he left Ferrari and now she wins. He’s a great pilot, so I’d really like to it was one of those racers that are fighting for the title,” added Horner.
