Red Bull dedicates Monza win to a cancer victim Erin Pezzella

Published

on

Sept.12 – The Championship leader Red Bull Racing has dedicated its win in the Italian GP to former staff member Erin Pezzella; she lost her battle against cancer previous in the week. Red Bull Racing Team principal Christian Horner was pleased with the result, particularly as it came on a track that was not projected to play to Red Bull Racing’s strengths, and afterwards paid tribute to Pezzella.

“Earlier this week we lost a young girl who worked for the team for five years in accounts,” said Horner. She was 31 years of age and she lost a very brave fight against cancer, so as a team we would like to dedicate this to her today. It puts everything into perspective.”

“We felt that the hit was potentially in qualifying when you can use the DRS all the time, whereas for the race we thought we were better placed,” said Horner. “That ultimately proved to be the case, even dropping behind Fernando, who we knew was pretty quick on the straight, Seb still managed to make it work. I think it was absolutely the right thing to do in the end.”

“It was an unbelievable day. Fernando (Alonso) had an awesome start and looked like he was only ever going to be the leader out of the first chicane. Sebastian was already pressuring him before the safety car and for anybody that doubted if he could overtake or not, I think he demonstrated it very clearly today with a very brave move, with two wheels on the grass. He made it stick – got his head down and had tremendous pace. It was a very, very well executed race strategy wise, pit-stop wise and from Seb himself. It is phenomenal for the team for the team and Red Bull to win in Monza. He added.
