Red Bull eye Singapore as place to ‘shine’


Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has earmarked the Singapore Grand Prix as the next race where his outfit could upset the applecart again.

In a season dominated by Mercedes with Ferrari picking up the scraps, the Red Bull duo of Daniil Kvyat and Daniel Ricciardo have often found themselves battling the midfield teams.

However, things finally came together for the Milton Keynes squad at the Hungarian Grand Prix with Kvyat claiming a career-best P2 and Ricciardo giving the team a double-podium finish.

Next up is the Belgian Grand Prix followed by the Italian GP and Horner admits the power-hungry circuits will be a bigger challenge, but he is hopeful they can be up there again in Singapore.

"We're going to live in the moment for now and think about Spa after the break, and particularly Monza," he is quoted as saying by Autosport.

"They're going to be much more challenging than Hungary, so Singapore's probably our next opportunity to shine.

"We're going to keep pushing, keep developing the car, and you never know, it could be wet at Spa.

"You've got to be in a position to capitalise on those days when it doesn't quite go right for others."
