Helmut Marko says Red Bull will receive an extra 20hp in Baku

Helmut Marko has revealed that Red Bull will receive more power from Honda when they race in Baku. After this first section of three races, most teams will start to upgrade their packages and Red Bull will hope that their upgrades are more significant than Ferrari and Mercedes as they continue to bridge the gap between the top teams. 

"We have received good news from Honda," Marko said to GPToday.net. "We will get 20 extra horsepower in Baku."

This is very positive news for Red Bull as Christian Horner has said that he is happy with his car's chassis but wants more top speed. 

"Honda is making progress on the straight. The top speed is getting better and better," Horner said. 

Red Bull will hope that they can continue to hold onto the third place they have in the driver's championship and will look to Pierre Gasly to continue to improve to allow them to challenge Ferrari for second place in the constructor's championship.
