Red Bull Racing team boss, Christian Horner has praised the efforts of his two drivers - David Coulthard and Christian Klien, following Sunday's Turkish GP, which saw them bring the two RB1's home in seventh and eighth respectively, to add three more points to the team's tally.

Horner was especially pleased because both drivers were heavily penalised in qualifying, as they had to go out first and second, after retiring early on at the Hungarian Grand Prix three weeks ago.

"After the penalty of having to go out to qualify first and second here, to finish the weekend in seventh and eighth is pretty good," summed up Horner. "It also means we maintain sixth place in the Constructors' Championship which is great, especially at this stage in the season, and we'll certainly be fighting very hard in the next few races to stay there. The strategic team, the engineers and the mechanics all did an excellent job.

"The pit stops were fast and it was a strong, disciplined performance. The drivers did a superb job and I'm pleased with the result."

David Coulthard meanwhile was also delighted, especially as he has now managed to score points in eight of the seasons 14 events thus far.

"Well, that was a pretty good result," added the Scot. "I was happy with the overall performance of the car throughout the race and, although we still have a few issues regarding the down-force level at top speed, the balance of the car felt good.

"We had some understeer at the start, but made a wing adjustment during the first pit stop to create more down force and after that it was much better. Otherwise, there were no issues at all during the race and I'm happy we collected three points."
