Max Verstappen has no child with Alexander Albon this season. After nine qualifying sessions, the Limburger was each time faster than his teammate and in the race Albon has not yet crossed the line for Verstappen, if they both did not drop out. Last season, Verstappen also had the upper hand over his teammate and the causes seem to be the same.
“The car is a bit sensitive when braking at the rear and I think Alex has a hard time with that, just like Pierre did last year”, Horner says. RacingNews365. Red Bull says it is doing its best to make the Thai feel more at ease. “We are focusing on that problem to fix it.”
Horner already saw improvement at Albon on Saturday at Mugello. “It is the best qualifying session of the season so far,” said the team boss. “As for the gap between the two drivers, in Spa and Monza they were already closer together. He (Albon, ed.) Is really making progress now and the fact that we are improving the car is also helping us.”
