We have the grid penalty to take for Max Verstappen,” Christian Horner told Red Bull’s website. “But in Sochi it’s not such a handicap because of the strength of the tow down to turn [two].” 

“There was a rare human error in our pit stop, as a result of the new technical directive but nonetheless something we need to learn from,” said Horner.
