She sounds and looks unusual. The weather at Silverstone was cool, but I'm still happy to drive the first kilometers.It is difficult to talk about the potential of the car, since I drove only a few laps, but the first impressions are quite positive. Even on a wet track RB14 was stable.As for Halo, it does not interfere with the review. At least on roads with no elevation change it will not cause problems".
The Red Bull team modestly unveiled a new machine RB14, limiting the publication of photos of her.The car has received an unusual coloring. But, as stated in the Red Bull racing will all change.The tests in Barcelona start on February 26. But Red Bull is planning to break RB14 during the so-called shooting day on track at Silverstone.

His best season in Formula 1 Daniil Kvyat held in 2015. Then the Russians were on the car of Red Bull with the number "26".Kvyat made his debut in the championship in 2014 in the Toro Rosso. His progress during the season so impressed the leadership of the Red Bull that Sebastian Vettel went to Ferrari, in his place was invited Daniel.The start of the 2015 season turned out to be difficult for Red Bull because of the constant failures of the engine Renault. For example, in Australia, Daniel never even made it to the starting grid. Reliability gradually came to normal, and began to appear the results. In Monaco Kvyat started fifth and finished fourth. Then there was sixth place in the UK. Finally, in Hungary, Quat climbed to the second step of the podium - the best result for the citizens of Russia.
Pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo said that not hold a grudge against the team and Christian Horner, who in the last races of the season-2017 provided the new engine only max Verstappen.Daniel ricciardo "I understand that my statements then were sharp. Horner came to me and said that no such comments he would like to see from their pilots. We talked with him and cleared the air. Moreover, the press got it all wrong, pulling words out of context.Horner said that the team equally applies to me and max. This is the most important thing I took away from that conversation. Max received an updated engine in the last few races, and it was the only thing that has gone beyond this relationship.But I'm not worried about it. If I was concerned, it would have voted on this issue".
Pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo believes that this year his team will be able to stop the Mercedes to hold in their hands the title.Daniel ricciardo "I think this year we will reduce the backlog. Is it enough to fight for the title I think we can get closer, but we'll see.Max got better in recent times. I will not say that he has come a long way, because he's in the race so long, but he's definitely improved, and I think next year Verstappen is an even more dangerous enemy.
Sports consultant to Red Bull Helmut Marko commented on the Ferrari contract with Daniel Cuatom and once again reminded that to expect to return to Red Bull Russian is not necessary.Helmut Marko "I'm happy for Kvyat. As far as I know, in a Ferrari it will work on the simulator and help Vettel and Raikkonen in preparation for the new season.But the doors in the Red Bull closed to him - this is what we made it pretty clear. Of course, never say never, but right now it's just no".

So I hope that we will remain good mates for a very long time".
Pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo said that he can bring the situation with the expectation of the contract to negative consequences.Daniel ricciardo "Yeah, I know that there is always a risk. The longer you postpone the signing of the contract, the greater the chances that you will lose all chances to perform in one of the teams.My approach to racing gives me confidence, I will definitely be a coveted player in one of the top teams.I just don't want to be the champion, when my head will be only the gray hair.
Head Red Bull Christian Horner is sure that the fight between Daniel ricciardo and max Verstappen in the new season will be very dense.Christian Horner "Max has really upped their game, especially on Saturdays, and Daniel had to stick to this speed to go with him shoulder to shoulder.The gaps between them are often very small, and that's exactly what you want as a leader.The season was tough for us, but also to understand how to cope with it much better. He was older, he had been in difficult situations, so it was done quicker and easier. He had a great season. Some of his overtaking this year has been phenomenal".
Pilot Red Bull Riccardo Daniel commented on the words of his teammate max Verstappen, who recently returned to the subject of overtaking Kimi Raikkonen during the last lap of the race Grand Prix of the United States.Daniel ricciardo "If there is a part of the track or the ability to obtain a small advantage, you will take advantage of this loophole. So we are organized.Especially on the last lap when the podium is so close. Each pilot will make every effort to get the coveted podium. It is the instinct of the pilot. So we are made.But I think Max got an unfair advantage, for which he received the penalty".

We have invested heavily in the youth program, and we have talented pilots".We will remind that the contract with max Verstappen extended until the end of 2020.
Pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo believes that Brendon Hartley was able to muscle his way into Formula 1.Daniel ricciardo "I think in the case of Brandon, the decisive factor was persistence. He was in the family of Red Bull and left, and after that, he acted in different series. He was always trying to fight your way back.He constantly called different people and asked to give him a second chance, to allow the pilot the best machines. And eventually it started working.He did everything himself - he doesn't have a rich family or something else. He created opportunities for himself and Red Bull praised it for giving him a second chance.I think now he is much more Mature pilot and is able to handle the pressure".
Sports consultant to Red Bull Helmut Marko said that Daniil Kvyat has great potential, but because of the problems the Russians just burned out mentally.Helmut Marko "Daniel is a talented pilot. Unfortunately, in Formula 1 he showed his capabilities in the first years in the Toro Rosso and Red Bull, and then he began to take. He had problems with tires and brakes that was not Riccardo.He has lost his speed, he's just burned out mentally. We much change to return it to its former form, but he would often get into a crash and began to react negatively to criticism. Daniel closed in himself, he wanted nothing to discuss.I remember how Daniel performed in GP3, his incredible race in Spa and Monza. In 2014, Toro Rosso with failing brakes he was fighting with Kimi Raikkonen in a Ferrari. But not enough to spend a few good races".
Pilot Red Bull Daniel Riccardo said that he wants to become a faster pilot next year, especially in qualifying, where he lost to teammate max Verstappen with the score 713.Daniel ricciardo "I don't often attacked in the race, but perfectly acted in the qualification. But this season things have changed, and Saturday was for me not the best.Feel that on Sundays I'm still progressing, but this year I have achieved stagnation in the results. I wouldn't call it a step backwards, but I will work to become faster next year. In the end, you can always improve something".

But a team of all power forwards on Valtteri.If we start to think about other pilots, the emotional side of Bottas will fail. He could then work at 100.I can assure you that we all want to Valtteri succeeded. Along with Lewis, he's our pilot, and we don't think about others.Of Valtteri has everything he needs. The guy should just pull myself together".Meanwhile, Bottas contract extended only until the end of 2018, and at the end of next season, free will be not only Windows, but Daniel ricciardo.
Franz Toast, head of the team Toro Rosso, where Daniel spent almost three years, noted that the Russian pilot has a lot of potential, which, unfortunately, failed to disclose.Franz Toast "I still believe that Daniel is a natural talent. Sometimes he was faster than Daniel ricciardo, but for the last two years he was not able to use their full potential. He had a lot of incidents, there were many problems with reliability - all this affected his confidence, it killed its speed. Perhaps after the break we will be able to see the old Daniel.His weak spot is the first 100 meters and take the first turn. He too much wanted to achieve from the start of the race.I hope he will get another chance. In my opinion, he deserves a place in Formula-1".
