Red Bull Racing Looking To Bounce Back From Barcelona Woes

1 Mins read

Red Bull Racing is aiming to return to the top step of the podium at this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix after a disappointing performance in Barcelona.

The team has seen its drivers win on the street circuit for the past three years, with Mark Webber taking victory in 2010 and 2012, and Sebastian Vettel emerging victorious in 2011.

“Monaco is one of my favourite tracks and driving it is an absolute challenge. You can’t make the smallest mistake; if you do, you’re lucky if it’s just that your lap time is bad. If you’re not paying attention, you’ll end up in the barrier. Overtaking is possible, but only with risk – the best place for that is before the chicane,” Vettel, who has won twice already this season, said.

We come out of the narrow tunnel at more than 300kph and race to the first fear-chicane – whoever brakes later wins. Ideally you have a good qualifying session and start from far forward.”

Mark Webber meanwhile is looking to get his season back on track after several disappointing races for the Australian.

“My best memory of the Monaco Grand Prix is definitely my first win there in 2010,” he said. “It’s right up there with my best memories of all time.”
