After Sergio Perez was eliminated in the second round of qualifying at the Las Vegas Grand Prix condemning him to the middle of the grid, Red Bull boss Christian Horner explained the things that went wrong during the final minutes of Q2.

Red Bull decided to save Checo Pérez's car with three minutes left in the second round when the Mexican was in sixth position and seemed to have a guaranteed place in Q3, but he was soon demoted to 12th place,

Horner indicated that the decision to put the car away before the checkered flag was due to a decision made previously where Perez would go out early for Q2 to avoid getting stuck in traffic, something that had already happened in Q1.

“We have three sets of tires for qualifying and we didn't want to get caught in traffic on the last lap,” said Horner, who pointed out that Pérez lacked some rhythm: “he lacked a tenth,” he told the British network Sky Sports.

The driver from Guadalajara will start from 11th place thanks to the sanction on the Spanish Carlos Sainz.

“We finished very early in Q2. There were still four minutes left in the session and we left very early, just at the moment when the track improved,” said the Mexican who did not blame a single person for the decision and accepted it was made together.

“It was a decision we made in the end, but we have to analyze it, know how we reached those conclusions.”

The Las Vegas Grand Prix race will start at 00:00 on Sunday.
