Red Bull can’t underestimate its F1 rivals: HornerApril 3rd, 2011 - 9:39 pm ICT by ANI
Kuala Lumpur, Apr 3(ANI): Red Bull Formula One team boss Christian Horner believes that rivals McLaren and Ferrari will bounce back after Sebastian Vettel’s dominant win in the season-opening Australian Grand Prix.
When asked if the season was going to be a Red Bull walkover, Horner said: “I totally doubt that will be the case.”
“We know Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso will be hugely competitive at forthcoming races,” he added.
The pace advantage of the Red Bull at Albert Park caught rivals by surprise, but Horner said that he did not expect his team to run away with the season.
“We’d love to think that, but history dictates these things are never that easy. We can’t underestimate our rivals,” the BBC quoted Horner, as saying.
“Ferrari with the heritage, quality of personnel and resources they have, they will come back strongly with Fernando maybe at the next race,” he added. (ANI)
