Red Bull chases KERS boost

Red Bull set to take upgraded KERS system to the Turkish Grand Prix
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner says the team will take an upgraded version of its KERS system to the Turkish Grand Prix in an effort to solve the problems it has suffered so far in 2011.

Mark Webber in particular has been beset by issues with the system in the three races run so far, with his 18th position on the grid in China being largely down to the fact that the system didn't work in qualifying.

Despite his fine recovery drive to finish third, Webber had to complete the race without KERS while team-mate Sebastian Vettel also suffered issues for the second successive race.

In an attempt to resolve the problems, Red Bull now plans to take an upgraded system to Istanbul, with the three-week break ahead of the Turkish race being used to fix the problems that have been encountered thus far.

"We have got another upgrade of KERS coming for Turkey," Horner was quoted by ESPN. "It is getting better and better as we get more understanding of the system and more mileage on it.

“I am confident that the niggly issues that we have with it, we have fixes in the pipeline."
