Horner: Red Bull will be in ‘attack mode’ in Canada

Motivation at Red Bull has never been higher, says Christian Horner

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has said the outfit will be in 'attack mode' in Canada this weekend.

The Milton Keynes-based outfit has yet to win at Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve and while Sebastian Vettel came close last year, only to have the victory snatched from his grasp on the final lap, when he made a mistake and was passed by Jenson Button, Horner added that the aim now is to 'rectify' the situation.

“We just love coming to Montreal,” Horner told La Presse. “The city comes alive. It is always a really 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 Racing has never won, even though we came very close last year. It would be wonderful to come back now and rectify the situation.

“In Montreal, power is crucial. It is the complete opposite of Monaco. Who knows if we will be competitive, but we will be in attack mode.”

Meanwhile, Horner is philosophical about the FIA's recent floor ruling, which means the holes towards the rear of the RB8 are now deemed illegal [see separate story - HERE].

“It doesn't get easier [being the top team],” he added. “Everything we do is scrutinised much more than if we were in the middle of the pack.

“[But] we are still young. This is our eighth car for our eighth season in F1 and we are still hungry. There is a great desire to do more.

“Our people enjoy winning but we want more. Motivation at Red Bull has never been higher,” he concluded.
