Despite the warning from the FIA, Red Bull team principal Christian Horner claims he has no regrets about his behavior at the Qatar Grand Prix.
Max Verstappen was given a five-place grid penalty after the confusing yellow flag situation at the end of qualifying. The Dutchman ignored the double yellow flag, according to the FIA. Team boss Horner complained in a post-session interview about the marshal in question. The Briton must therefore participate in the stewards seminar as a punishment.
‘Would do exactly the same’
Horner does not regret his behavior: “I believe in my team and I am a real talker. That’s how I’ve always behaved.” The team boss tries not to show his emotions to the outside world. “I’m not an overly emotional person and I don’t rant at the cameras,” said the Red Bull team principal. The Brit sees no problems. “Have no issues with the way I’ve behaved, would do the exact same thing,” he says of it.
“I had no problem with a marshal or anything like that. It was about whether the marshal might have made a personal mistake,” Horner explains. Furthermore, according to the Briton, it is over and it concerns the coming races. However, he still defends his words in the interview given earlier: “I don’t know if you heard the interview what I’m going on Sunday? But I don’t think it was unreasonable.”
