But the viewer an important component of the sport of racing, not technical. Everyone needs struggle and competition".

Christian Horner the New engine has allowed to win back two-tenths of a second

Head Red Bull Christian Horner said that the updated Renault engine compared to the winter tests allow you to become faster by two tenths of a second per lap.Christian Horner "I would say, two-tenths.

Her extra weight didn't meet our expectations, so I don't think that her refusal hurt us".

Legal issues forced to introduce a Halo

Legal issues forced to introduce a Halo

For a long time the debate raging about whether Halo is good or bad for Formula 1, but the head of the Red Bull's Christian Horner believes that Mercedes has supported FIA in this decision.Christian Horner "Mercedes has come out with this concept, and they put the FIA in a difficult position. If we have an accident, and the car will not be a Halo, and the system would have saved lives, then from a legal point of view it would be difficult to argue why this system was not, since it was available for implementation. That's why we developed Aeroscreen - tried to solve the problem more aesthetically pleasing.FIA was now backed into a corner with this Halo. No other options have passed all the tests, no.I am concerned that each formula series, up to the go-kart will have to have this system. When will it end I think at some point, as a pilot, you have to take certain risks".

Vitaly Petrov, Daniil Kvyat must earn his place in the team

The ex-pilot of Formula 1 Vitaly Petrov believes that just because nobody will give you a place in the team Daniil Kvyat.Red Bull hopes that Pierre went Out will receive a place in the Toro Rosso, while the head of Toro Rosso Franz Toast Kvyat warns that he is too emotional at the beginning of the race.Vitaly Petrov "In Formula 1 no one is immune from the risk of being replaced at any time. Therefore, even if Christian Horner says he wants to extend the contract, Kvyat could not calm down. I remember that the wheel of Renault's Nick Heidfeld was very strong, and yet the team changed their preference in the direction of Bruno Senna in the middle of the season.So I think Daniel needs to relax, reboot and prepare for the second part of the championship. If it continues it will make so many mistakes, it could end badly for him".

Christian Horner Formula 1 at the crossroads of choosing a new engine

Head Red Bull Christian Horner believes that Formula 1 is facing a serious choice in which the championship should help the Formula. Christian Horner "a Whole galaxy of brands rushed into Formula E, and this gives us a chance to return to the classics of the engines of Formula 1 in the future.Formula-E - platform for the development of future technologies. Porsche, Mercedes, Renault, Audi, Jaguar is much more manufacturers than Formula 1.The cost of the work in the Formula-E is now 5 percent of the budget in Formula 1, so I can imagine that manufacturers of machines for the masses are in the Formula, such as Ferrari, Aston Martin and Lamborghini, pay attention to the Formula-1. This is their place.So I see that the championship is at a crossroads. If you believe a policy, we'll all be driving EVS in 2030, so the Formula-1 should be pure racing, a competition of the best pilots in the world with internal combustion engines.I conducted a survey on one of the forums fans of Red Bull, and all welcomed my opinion when I said we want to go back to V10. I doubt we'll do it. We have to settle for bi-turbo V6, but the sound is the key. Of all critics of the current engines the most important thing for fans is the sound.

Does not make sense to talk about more long term than before the season 2019, because we must first offer him a car with which he can win. I am convinced that once we succeed, there will be no other team for which he wants to speak.Max is very Mature to cope with these difficulties, especially when you consider how young he is. In England Max due to age can't even rent a carHow it relates to pressure, is impressive. As a pilot, he becomes stronger, as well as people. Nobody is perfect, so he always tries to make progress in different fields".
