Austrian GP doesn’t suit Red Bull – Webber

Red Bull Ring 2016 F1

Former Red Bull driver Mark Webber is not expecting his old team to shine too brightly this weekend in Austria.

Once called the A1-Ring, the ‘Red Bull Ring’ is now the energy drink company’s home race.

But teen sensation Max Verstappen warned: “It might not be the most ideal circuit for our car in terms of performance but it’s still very enjoyable.”

Teammate Daniel Ricciardo agreed: “I would love a few more corners but it is a fun track for what it is, quite flowing and fast.”

Red Bull has been showing increasingly resurgent form of late, but Australian Webber thinks the long straights of the Red Bull Ring will not suit the Renault-powered package.

He told Servus TV: “It’s the narrow, winding tracks that are best for them.

“The Red Bull Ring is not really a Red Bull circuit, as there are too many long straights.

“It would be better for them, to show what their chassis can do, if it rains,” Webber added.
