Red Bull refuse to throw in the towel for 2018 season

Red Bull refuse to throw in the towel for 2018 season

Red Bull chief Christian Horner has insisted that the team are not ready to give up on races in the 2018 season due to the upcoming changes within the team which will see Honda replace Renault as their engine supplier and Pierre Gasly replace Daniel Ricciardo as a driver.

Horner's team are currently third in the constructor rankings but are some way off Ferrari in second and Mercedes in first, leading many to question whether they are already looking ahead to 2019 instead of current performances.

The 44-year-old, however, disputes this suggestion, saying Red Bull have plenty of opportunities to keep learning.

“No, not really. There’s still an awful lot we can learn," Horner told RACER when asked if Red Bull are 'waiting for the end of the season'.

“I think there’s a few tracks coming up, I’m looking forward to going to Singapore, I’m looking forward to going back to Mexico.

“Japan could be interesting for us, Brazil if it rains, so there’s still a lot to play for this year. The hardest races — Spa and Monza — we were on the podium at Spa, we could have been on the podium at Monza, so it’s not all bad.”

Horner went on to preview the Singapore Grand Prix, and claims that Red Bull cannot treat it the same way as Monaco, which is also a street race.

“Hopefully we can be more competitive in Singapore,” he continued.

“Look, Singapore is not Monaco, there’s longer straights there and so on, but we were over a second away in qualifying at Monza. Hopefully we can get closer.

“We know in the race we are able to match what the leaders can do, and Singapore might be something other than a one-stop as well, so there’s more opportunities.”
