Red Bull out to make amends at Silverstone
After a mixed race result for Red Bull that saw Sebastian Vettel fall out of a race victory and Mark Webber fall short of a podium, the Austrian team looks to make up for it in Great Britain. The two drivers are more than comfortable with the recently revamped circuit and are more than aware of the crazy weather that might affect them next weekend.
Mark Webber: “I’m really looking forward to the British Grand Prix and racing in front of a sell-out crowd that’s passionate about F1. Many of them will be there to cheer on the Brits, so there’s some irony in the fact that Silverstone is actually the local track for both the Aussie F1 drivers on the grid; Daniel Ricciardo and I are based in Buckinghamshire! It’s a great time of the year for British sport, with Wimbledon on at present and the Olympic Games just around the corner. I’m sure the British Grand Prix won’t disappoint; we’re going to Silverstone with one goal in mind and that’s to win!”
Sebastian Vettel: “Even after the track was amended for the 2011 race, it didn't lose its magic. For me as a driver it is one of the best and interesting tracks of all. The atmosphere is great, British fans enthusiastically support their countrymen, but at the same time they’re very objective and fair in judging the performance of the non-British drivers. On top of that they are experts about F1. The track is demanding for a driver and provides everything a driver likes, including the unpredictable weather which is possible in July in Silverstone.”
