The head of Red Bull Lonely race for ricciardo

Head Red Bull Christian Horner commented on the results of the race in Spain for their team.Christian Horner "Daniel had a great race, almost alone. Sorry, we didn't have enough speed to fight with the leaders. We obviously benefited from the gathering of Bottas, so Riccardo owes its first year, the podium exactly Valtteri. Max started well, but became a victim of unfortunate circumstances in the first turn. Bottas crashed into Kimi, which, in turn, demolished our pilot.We understand that a lot of work ahead. Our package of upgrades is not ideal. Now we look to the future, the most prestigious race in the calendar, the Monaco Grand Prix. I hope that we can show there is a good show".

Head Red Bull Christian Horner with regret commented on the results of the Grand Prix of Russia.Christian Horner "firstly, congratulations to Valtteri Bottas for his first victory in the Grand Prix, a great victory for him.For us was a real disappointment, the loss of Daniel at the beginning of the race because the right rear brake. And we have yet to understand what is the cause of this failure. It seems that this is reminiscent of the max problem in Bahrain, but we will study the data.Max spent a strong race. He started well and immediately found themselves in the neutral zone with no other opponents.On the track, which we know and love, we are unable to achieve maximum results. I hope that in Barcelona will be able to reverse the course of the struggle for victory".

Red Bull does not allow Carlos Sainz to negotiate

Head Red Bull Christian Horner said that his team is not going to let Carlos Sainz.Christian Horner "Carlos has a contract with Red Bull, whereby he came into Formula 1.

He is still very young, but we appreciate him, so I don't want to let the guy go. And all this has nothing to do with the rumors about the transition Riccardo Ferrari. It's just a rumor".

The head of Red Bull early In the race, we looked decent

Head Red Bull Christian Horner said that his team at the start of the race in Bahrain looked very convincing.Christian Horner "After an exciting start of the race until the first pit stops, our car looked very convincing and competitive. Especially looked good Max. He managed to climb a couple of places, and we had an early pit stop, but unfortunately, shortly thereafter there is a problem with the braking system, and Verstappen out of the race.We stopped by Daniel under the safety car, but lost some time behind Lewis when he deliberately slowed the movement in the pit lane, for which he later was fined. However, we still managed to get ahead of him on this leg of the course during the restart, we were third. Daniel struggled trying to warm up the soft tyres, but that failed, so the boy skipped forward a number of machines. Soon Daniel was able to cope with rubber and broke to the fifth place, today was our maximum".

The head of Red Bull, McLaren is just trying to keep Alonso

Head Red Bull Christian Horner believes that the Indy 500 and other sweet things made Zack brown just to keep Fernando Alonso at McLaren.Christian Horner "Fernando in the team now heavy time. Alonzo depression, and brown to wrestle with how to keep the pilot in command.He came up with this idea sent him to Indianapolis. He must be insane to do this, because this is the coolest race I have ever seen. Without special tests Alonso's just going to jump in the car. This is not a race where you can easily go the distance, I suggest Fernando before you start to see a psychiatrist.I'll let its pilots No, because it will be like how the guy escapes with another girl, and then returns. This is unacceptable.Maybe if the races do not overlap and it would be the end of a career pilot, then Yes, maybe, but it's obvious that the McLaren approach is to work with the pilots is very different from ours. It is good for them".

We were able to get a podium and good points through the mistake Ferrari".Raikkonen finished fifth, behind a pair of pilots Red Bull.

The head of Red Bull Machine is too sensitive to air flow

Head Red Bull Christian Horner said that his team's cars are too sensitive to the perturbed air flow - hence the loss in speed.Christian Horner "the Problem is that our cars are very sensitive to the perturbed air flow from the front running cars. We in Australia have been unable to see the true potential of the car in clean air. I saw that we was on the pace of Kimi, but he knew that the machine can be half a second faster.All these two weeks Adrian Newey has worked to improve the efficiency of the machine in the perturbed flow. In China look what came of it".

The head of Red Bull Minardi 12 years ago sounded better

Head Red Bull Christian Horner believes that Formula 1 should focus on the sound of cars, and not on their appearance.Christian Horner "currently cars look great, but, in my opinion, instead of focusing on the exterior, you need to focus on the sound. I think that now 12-year-old Minardi sounds better, although then it had the weakest engine and was hopelessly uncompetitive.When you hear the sound of the V10 engines, we need only to look around and see all these enthusiastic faces. This is exactly what the fans need. I'd rather give more strength to return to the loud sound, than on achieving a more beautiful appearance".

The head of Red Bull In Australia has always been difficult to overtake

Head Red Bull Christian Horner believes that the conclusions about overtaking you need to wait until the Bahrain Grand Prix.Christian Horner "I Think we should leave the final opinion up to the end of the race in Bahrain. If you look at Melbourne, historically there has never been a lot of overtaking. China and Bahrain are the two tracks where to overtake is much easier.I liked to observe how the pilots attacked throughout the race. Nobody was saving fuel and tyres as before."During the last race in Australia, the experts counted a total of five traverses.

Our car is clearly the third, but in the next two races we intend to reduce the backlog.In Melbourne, Ferrari produced the most powerful impression, and they have probably the strongest car at the moment.But honestly, I don't think Mercedes are too far ahead of us. In my opinion, we should find half a second in China".

During the race, he never gave up, tried to return to the fight, hoping for a safety car, which are not uncommon. However, we were not lucky.Max had a great start, he was able to pass Kimi, but, unfortunately, he had no path in the third turn to exit forward. Strategically, we did everything right, the team put a lot of effort, but today's result looks disappointing.Congratulations Sebastian, I think he owes us a beer He actually spent a strong race".

Williams in this respect much lost, releasing his pilot. I'm sure Bottas will be competitive, as it is very quickly dealt with the complexities of Junior series. I wouldn't dismiss it, believing that Valtteri will be only the second number.I am very satisfied with their pilots, and I don't want to change them in the near future.
