Red Bull Racing team boss Christian Horner said in Hungary: «We firmly believe that our Red Bull Racing RB16 is a fast car. We just have to get this potential out of the car better. »
One who will help is an old acquaintance: Red Bull Racing is bringing Simon Rennie back, who had worked for the racing team in Milton Keynes since 2013, at that time as a race engineer for Mark Webber. From 2014 to 2018 he was with Daniel Ricciardo. Then he took over a post with less travel burden. Now he changes over with Mike Lugg – Lugg works in the factory, Rennie is back on the race track. His rich experience, from Silverstone in the role of engineer on Alex Albon’s car, will help the whole team.
Before the fourth round of the World Cup, Max Verstappen says: “After three races in a row it was good to take a deep breath. I watched the Hungarian race in peace again, or rather – what happened before the Grand Prix. My boys really did a little miracle with this repair after my slip. I found the video fascinating; to see how each move fits and how they have kept a cool head in this difficult situation. Without them I could have forgotten the start. »
«Some of the Silverstone curves are simply amazing. Copse goes full jug, Maggots also, at least in the final training. In England, it’s all about finding the right compromise when it comes to downforce and slippery wind. And the moody English summer usually also plays a role. For my part, I would have no objection to a little rain! »
