Red Bull needs Vettel’s RB8 ‘proper post-mortem’

Published

on

Red Bull Racing Chief Christian Horner says that European GP aggressive man Sebastian Vettel’s mid-race retirement was a cruel, cruel luck. And also they need Vettel’s RB8 proper post-mortem.

Defending world champion dominated in the race in early session and he expand 20+ seconds gap with main rivals but unfortunately he was stop the race due to Red Bull RB8’s technical problem.

Unhappy Vettel admitted that the team “didn’t know what the problem was” after his retirement and team Principal Horner says they will only know what caused the breakdown once they’ve had a look at the car.

“It’s a suspected alternator,” he told Sky Sports. We need to get the car back and have a look at all the data but it looks like a similar issue to perhaps what happened on the Lotus. But we need to get it back and have a proper post-mortem, but that’s what we suspect.”

“It’s hard to decipher at this point exactly what the cause is so we’ll get it back and we’ll investigate with Renault and try and learn from it.”

Horner described about the Vettel’s unlucky race, it was “cruel, cruel luck”. It’s just another demonstration that sometimes motor racing can be cruel,” he said.

“Sebastian had done everything right, he was a pit stop ahead, he’d driven immaculately, had great pace, the race was his really. Cruel, cruel luck, but we must take heart that we had a very fast car here… bitterly disappointing for Seb but he’ll be back.”
