Horner 'hungry' towards Hungary: Max took pole here last year

We're going to race for the third weekend in a row. This time in Hungary. Team boss of Red Bull Racing Christian Horner is looking forward to the weekend and is happy with the useful data they have collected on the updates of the last two races.

Work at hand for Red Bull

The conclusion after two races is pretty clear for Red Bull: we have to work hard to catch up with Mercedes as fast as possible. According to Horner that starts with analyzing the data as he shows from his column on the Red Bull website: "The results and feedback from the opening two races have allowed us to target specific areas and tailor the updates accordingly"

The English team boss continues: "We're going to Budepast to race and our focus will be on the track." Because of Covid-19 there are strict rules for Formula 1 employees regarding their freedom of movement. That will be from the hotel to the track and back again, nothing more.

Last year pole for Red Bull

Horner is hopeful for the weekend although he knows very well that Mercedes is the team to beat. Not only because of the recent results but also because of the results in the last five years at the Hungaroring.

"I am looking forward to Hungary. It's a different circuit, a bit more technical than the Red Bull Ring and that gives us chances. Mercedes has shown that they have performed well here in recent years but Max took pole last year with the Honda engine. It will be an interesting weekend. In any case, we are hungry."
