Looks fine to me as is.

 

You'll have to clarify what you mean by "get the best out of" it.

vibrant reds are known to be one of, if not the hardest for camera to record properly. I was asking if theres a way lightroom can recover or display to the best of its ability how the reds would of looked like when the photo was taken

Create a sky mask, then use things like Point Color, or slightly lower the Saturation. You can also play with individual color curves.

I've shot vibrant reds, thanks. 

 

But you're still not articulating what needs to be "better" here: hard to suggest "improvements" if we don't know what needs to be improved.

 

Neither Lr, nor we, know "how the reds would have looked like when the photo was taken."

 

But if you're asking how to target a specific colour, there are umpteen ways, like those suggested by Johan. A quick Google of "LightRoom targeted adjustements" or the like would likely be illuminating...

yeah ill try johans suggestion.

As for the problem, like I said at the start  there "no graduation in colours" - especially if you look at the underneath side of that triangle-shaped red-pink blobby bit.

"I've shot vibrant reds, thanks." — can you please expand on that eg. "I've shot vibrant reds, Ive never noticed a problem with them in post-processing" or "I've shot vibrant reds, and this is what I do in post-processing...."

dont think so, the only 2 wb settings where there was a nice graduation of colour or tone was shade (too warm overall) or fluorescent (too cold overall)
