‘Four Races’ is all Red Bull Need To Put Mercedes Under pressure For Rest of the Season Portraits Christian Horner

Red Bull boss Christian Horner talks about the data of pros and cons from the 2021 season-opener race at Bahrain.

Christian Horner, the Red Bull Racing chief is all confident of taking the Constructor’s Championship competition to their arch-rival Mercedes AMG F1 this season. The Milton Keynes-based team is further giving neck-to-neck competition to the Silver Arrows this season.

Red Bull is at P2 in the Constructor’s Championship with 53 points after two races at Sakhir and Imola Circuit, while trails leader Mercedes AMG by 7 points who are 60 points. Red Bull, this year are title favorites alongside the obvious German giants in the list.

However, the expectations are different this time. Not only as one of the potential Champions, but the Austrian giants also hold an edge over the Silver Arrows because of the rake system in their car. Red Bull’s RB16B uses a high rake system in their car which holds an advantage over Mercedes’ low rake W12. The RB16B is faster than W12 by almost 1 second per lap.

Next is the acid test for us, feels Christian Horner of Red Bull

Horner, in a statement released by Red Bull’s Official website, conveyed, “I always said it would take four races to get a clear picture of form, so now is the acid test.”

Max Verstappen, the star driver for the Milton Keynes-based team is spearheading the attack for them against Lewis Hamilton and is also the predicted Champion alongside the Briton. With the incredibly fast car and two races already down, Red Bull this season hopes to put an end to Mercedes’ domination in the F1 domain and bag the Championship Title.

The upcoming Portuguese Grand Prix this week will be as interesting as it gets. Both Red Bull and Mercedes having won one race each as of now this season will gear up to lock horns for the third one and surpass one another. Christian believes by the end of the four races which is in Spain, the picture of the Championship will be a lot clearer.
