The head of the Red Bull Racing Christian Horner hopes that the team will be able to join in the fight with Mercedes and Ferrari during the latter part of the season 2017, despite a large backlog at the moment.
At the Grand Prix of Spain last Sunday, Daniel ricciardo though, and finished third, but lost more than a minute Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.
“While we are in a separate League, but strive to impose struggle leaders. If it succeeds, then perhaps one of our riders will be able to influence the situation in the championship, – quotes Horner F1i. – When five or six pilots have a chance to win every Grand Prix, the dynamics of the fight changes.”
As admitted by Horner, much will depend on upgrading the car during the season. At the Grand Prix of Spain Red Bull Racing, as the rest of the team, presented a large package of innovations, but don’t jump to conclusions.
“This is part of a continuous process during the whole season,’ said Christian. The first signs are encouraging, but as with any update, it takes time to accurately judge effectiveness.
In Barcelona we worked on the settings, trying to achieve optimum machine operation. It brought results – Daniel finished on the podium.
There is a feeling that in the next race we can do better.”
Sports consultant to Red Bull Helmut Marko in a recent interview said that for the Austrian team struggle in the season-2017 actually completed. Horner such a comment only amused.
“The Austrians, probably, always see the glass as half empty! said Horner. – Helmut very immediate reaction both good and bad events. I guess I’m more optimistic because I sincerely believe that the second half of the season will be successful for us.
A year ago in Barcelona we had the same points, that did not stop us to catch up and get ahead of Ferrari, although early in the season no one believed. All can change very quickly”.
