The head of the Red Bull Racing Christian Horner did not agree with the statement of the boss of Mercedes Motorsport Toto Wolff that using another brand of fuel and lubricants compared to the Renault hurting the team.
The fact that RBR uses the products from ExxonMobil, while the factory team of the French group collaborates with BP Castrol.
“On the other specification of fuel it is necessary to calibrate the engine, – said wolf, who called the approach of the Red Bull erroneous. – While on the road, you calibrate the engine and not doing anything useful. You just complicate the lives of the team.”
Red Bull Racing has assured, that benefit from working with ExxonMobil.
“I understand what you wanted to say Toto, – said Horner in an interview with Sky Sports News. – In our opinion, this is an advantage. For the 12 months of cooperation we have established an excellent working relationship with Exxon. With their excellent products, we have won three Grand Prix last season.
Yes, of course, there are some disadvantages: due to the fact that we work with other supplier, we have to conduct more tests on a chassis dynamometer. But we would never have dared to take such a step, not whether we are confident in the technical advantage”.
