I owe everything to this company.I can talk to them about my loyalty, about what I want to achieve.

Head Red Bull Christian Horner said that his team at the start of the race in Bahrain looked very convincing.Christian Horner "After an exciting start of the race until the first pit stops, our car looked very convincing and competitive. Especially looked good Max.

However, we still managed to get ahead of him on this leg of the course during the restart, we were third. Daniel struggled trying to warm up the soft tyres, but that failed, so the boy skipped forward a number of machines. Soon Daniel was able to cope with rubber and broke to the fifth place, today was our maximum".
