Monaco strategy: Still getting angry

In Monaco, Max Verstappen (Red Bull) initially tried to pass by with an undercut of Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes), but because his team quickly anticipated the strategy, it became nothing.

Instead, Verstappen’s teammate Daniel Ricciardo profited from it and eventually became a third party thanks to an overshoot. A placement that the Dutch actually had in mind. The an ger about this can also be felt in Montreal.

Of course I’m still not happy with it,”he admits to understandings,”but I can’t change the situation any more.”Team leader Christian Horner tried after the race to calm his driver and explain everything. But understand sees the responsibility in the team, because he only followed the instructions: “It is difficult for me to judge this during a race. I don’t know what happens behind me and who stops.”

Motivated in the seventh season race

If he should have stayed on the track longer until the first stop, the Red Bull pilot would have preferred not to think about it at all.”I don’t know if he should have stayed on the track any longer.” I didn’t want to think much about racing after the Monaco Grand Prix. I enjoyed my time with my friends and family. Now we are here again and we will try to make it better”, he exercises hiding in confidence on the seventh race of the season.

Ricciardo, who became third in Monaco, can understand understand understand understand understand understand understand understand understand understand understand understand the trouble. After all, it only looked like him one day before the race. Because after a failed qualifying, the Australian only saw himself standing on starting point five. Again, the tactics of the team were to blame. It had sent Ricciardo to Q3 with too much traffic. Instead of enjoying a pole position like last year, the frustration was great.

“I was just annoyed that we had wasted the opportunity to push again,” Ricciardo looks back. The Red Bull pilot then sought clarification with his engineer and also the team leader. They also admitted that it would have been better to wait for one more moment for free travel: “It was a miscalculation.” But Ricciardo no longer complains. In the race there was some kind of compensation.
