Red Bull looking to delve deeper in search for answers

After a dismal showing at the British Grand Prix, a week after a dominant performance in Austria, Red Bull has issued an official statement, which reports that they will seek for justifications supporting the poor performance. Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen failed shortly after a promising start and looked off the pace in the final few minutes. Red Bull boss, Christian Horner admitted a sluggish performance cost them a rather humiliating defeat. The low-speed corners played a significant part, which hindered the performance of the drivers.

Horner mentioned the need of full throttle at Silverstone, which was more than the previous years. The Hungarian Grand Prix seems to be Red Bull’s next target as it works on the aerodynamic update.

 


 

Renault boss found no reason for a poor reliability

Nico Hulkenberg denied a strong finish after an ERS issue that helped Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo to edge past him. Hulkenberg revealed that the straight line speed slowed down considerably in the final few moments, helping him lose power and deployment. He cited this as a reason for Daniel to finish fifth, one ahead of Nico. However, he emphasized on the fact that it was a decent season, and the team had performed exceptionally throughout. Nico enjoyed one of his few best races in recent years. Cyril Abiteboul had none of it and has accepted that there remains an issue with reliability, which forced Jolyon Palmer to retire on the formation lap. He expressed his discontent stating that the reliability issue has cost them dearly, and it is high time to sort things out.

Cyril’s clear approach might breathe new life into Renault, and the reliability issue remains to be their top priority as stated by Renault boss.
