Red bull has apologised to Ricciardo

В Ред Булл извинились перед Риккьярдо

Director Red bull principal Christian Horner apologized to the team driver Daniel Ricciardo for the mistakes made by the technical staff during a pit stop at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Ricciardo started the race from pole position and was leading comfortably until, until I went in for a pit stop to change tires. It turned out that the technical staff did not prepare the right tire, causing the pilot lost too much time.

As a result, the Aussie has lost first place to the pilot Mercedes Lewis Hamilton, and after the finish did not hide his indignation.

Daniel is quite understandable, because this race has been his second in a row in which he loses the win because of the faulty actions of the team. At the previous Grand Prix in Spain Ricciardo was also the first, but during the race the Red bull decided to change the strategy of the pilot, which he has dropped by three positions and finished the race outside of the podium.

“For the second race in a row happens to me like that,” said Ricciardo. – They had to be ready. It upsets me”.

Team Director Christian Horner is aware of the guilt of the staff in front of the driver, because appealed to the Australian apology:

“As a team we need to bring Daniel a huge apology for not able to support him,” said Horner.

“The delay at the pit stop cost him the leadership, and in spite of excellent piloting and constant presence directly behind Lewis, Daniel did not get around to it”.

According to Horner, the error happened because of communication problems and inconvenient arrangement of the technical facilities at the circuit in Monaco. Due to insufficient amount of free space some sets of tires had to be placed in the rear of the garage. These tires and was needed during a disastrous pit stop.
