Red Bull Racing want to get more points on the board this Sunday at the British Grand Prix, after suffering one of their worst weekends of the season in France.

Thus far this season, the Milton-Keynes-based outfit have notched up six points, thanks to a fifth place finish at the Spanish GP and a seventh place finish in the USA.

Now the target is to add to that tally: "It felt like we had raced for nothing in Magny-Cours," said principal engineer, Febrice Lom, "We didn't score points, and we weren't on the pace. We are aiming to put that behind us at Silverstone, which is another important event as it is the home race for Red Bull Racing."

Asked about the approach for the weekend, Lom, who is charged with looking after the Renault engines at RBR, noted that while the Silverstone circuit is demanding, it shouldn't be a problem.

"It is an important race, one of the historical events on the calendar. Like Spa and Monza, this a demanding engine track because there are some very high-speed sections, such as Becketts, where the car is under very high lateral loads.

"Those are challenges we have to be ready for. We tested here two weeks ago and made good progress, so we have a good basis to work from on Friday morning," he explained.

So what do they expect to achieve? "Scoring points is always our target. We approach every Grand Prix the same way, trying to do our maximum, and this is a race where we particularly want to succeed," he summed-up.
