Red Bull aims for perfect record

2012-06-06 08:32

PERFECT RACE RECORD ON THE CARDS: If Red Bull wins the upcoming Canadian Grand Prix the team will have won at 18 of the 20 circuits on the 2012 F1 calendar.

Red Bull sees the upcoming Canadian Grand Prix as a chance to set its almost perfect record straight.

Of the 20 circuits on the 2012 calendar, the team has won at all of them with the exception of Austin and Montreal.

Sebastian Vettel came close in 2011, succumbing to Jenson Button's challenge on the very last lap: "I led every lap until part of the last one."


Team boss Christian Horner told La Presse newspaper: "We love coming to Montreal.  The city comes alive. It's always a great atmosphere.  Even if the circuit is not the most exciting of the season, it has always produced exciting racing.

"This is one of the only races that Red Bull has never won, even though we came very close last year," he said.

The 2011 loss was even sourer for Red Bull given the marathon day at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, due to an excruciatingly long red flag delay and torrential rain.

Horner said: "It would be wonderful to come back and rectify the situation."

Indeed, a win on Sunday would also mark a definite comeback for the reigning world champions, whose recent victory in Monaco meant Red Bull is the only constructor to have won more a single Grand Prix so far in 2012.

Horner said: "In Montreal, power is crucial. It's the complete opposite of Monaco. Who knows if we'll be competitive, but we'll be in attack mode.

"We are still young. This is our eighth car for our eighth season in formula one and we're still hungry. There is a great desire to do more.

"Our people enjoyed winning but we want more.  Motivation at Red Bull has never been higher," said Horner.

The team comes to Montreal having had the floor of its RB8 declared illegal by the FIA, following complaints to the governing body reportedly lodged by direct rivals Ferrari, McLaren and Mercedes.

Horner admitted: "It doesn't get easier. Everything we do is scrutinised much more than if we were in the middle of the pack."
