Christian Horner pleased with Red Bull strategy

Published

on

Red Bull Racing boss Christian Horner said that his team exceeded his expected despite finishing only fourth and fifth at a Canadian GP dominated by the McLaren drivers.

“Here we’ve performed better and been more competitive with the McLarens than I expected,” said Horner. “The advantage McLaren have at this circuit was always going to be a tall order for us.” But the pace of our car here has been more than we expected coming into the event, so they were still very valuable points, and there’s a long way to go.”

A second successive 1-2 for the McLaren Mercedes team means that Red Bull, who had been the car to beat in the earlier rounds, is again playing catch up. But Horner remains unfazed by the situation and expects his team to bounce back strongly in the rounds to come.

“We know we’ve tracks coming up that will suit us. We have to take support from our performance here this weekend. We tried something different on the strategy, but it wasn’t enough to propel us ahead of the McLarens for the whole race, but it made for an interesting race.

“Hopefully we can run strongly in Valencia, which is going to be another challenge for us, but then we come back to tracks that should play more to our strengths. So there’s absolutely everything to play for.”

“Valencia will play to the strengths of McLaren and Mercedes. We thought there would be more Mercedes-powered cars ahead of us, so we’ve actually managed to limit the damage. “We’ve a couple of developments coming. I’m sure we can go there and build on the performance we’ve had here.”
