Max Verstappen couldn’t take pole position in Las Vegas with Charles Leclerc securing the top spot – however Red Bull is confident that it will have the edge in the race.
Red Bull expects to have a stronger race pace compared to Ferrari, who took pole position for the Las Vegas Grand Prix. Despite starting in third place, Max Verstappen will move up to the front row due to Carlos Sainz’s grid penalty. Red Bull believes that Ferrari’s car works the tires harder and that they have an advantage in keeping the tires alive for longer during the race. In recent events, Ferrari has taken pole position but dropped back behind Red Bull in the Grand Prix, and Red Bull expects a similar scenario to unfold in Las Vegas. The team is satisfied with their performance and confident in their race setup.
