D he GP Spain brought one half new Red Bull and an old problem. Even the major upgrade did not bring Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo better starting positions. The two Red Bull drivers started the race again from the third row on the grid. And then pay until they finally have free travel. This time Kimi Raikkonen blocked the Red Bull's view of the front for 25 laps. When the Ferrari parked in the garage with an engine problem, Verstappen and Ricciardo were already 22 and 32 seconds behind the front.

aunte: “The Red Bulls had better traction out of the chicane than we did, despite theirs Tires were 20 laps older. ”

Despite the result of only 25 points, team boss Christian Horner, Marko and the drivers describe the upgrade, which some called a B version, a complete success. “The lap times show that.” Small caveat: Red Bull actually wanted to improve its qualifying speed. You were already good in the race. Even at top speed, there was no outstanding step forward. Ricciardo's 332 km /h were favored by slipstream and DRS. The Verstappens 324 km /h are more representative. And they were in the back third of the race. That's why Marko breathes a sigh of relief when he goes to Monte Carlo in two weeks' time: “Monaco is like Sector 3 in Barcelona. Just without a straight line. “
