Horner hints at upgrades in Spain

It is expected that many upgrades will be taken away in Spain. When asked if Red Bull is one of the teams that will bring new parts to that weekend, Horner replied, "It's all about iterations. And, of course, you have to look very carefully where you bring your upgrades in through the year."

The team prinicpal continued: "We're closer to the top of the curve, so you get into a law of diminishing returns. But there will be subtle upgrades over the summer months." When Horner was then asked if this is a confirmation that Red Bull will bring parts to Spain, he answered, "It's a possible yes."
