Red Bull boss Christian Horner said the final result of the race in Spain did not show the right balance of power. Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel finished the 66-lap race for the Spanish Grand Prix in Red Bull race cars three-quarters of a minute behind Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg in Mercedes.
But Horner believes that Red Bull's true form was hidden by a combination of circumstances, such as Ricciardo getting stuck behind Valtteri Bottas in Williams for a few laps in the first part of the race, and Vettel breaking through to the forefront from XNUMXth place.
“Especially in the back, where the Mercedes were driving at full speed and Daniel and Sebastian had a free ride, we approached them,” Horner said. “The difference is still big, but it’s nice to see that we’ve progressed and overtaken Ferrari and the rest of the teams.
48 seconds behind is not exactly realistic, as we lost a lot of time behind Williams in the first part. When we had a clear path towards the end of the race, we just kept an eye on the tires until the end of the race, ”explained Horner.
