In the wake of a less-than-successful testing session at Bahrain, the Red Bull team are hard at work to ensure that the troublesome RB10 is on the pace in Melbourne.
The new car refused to turn a single lap on the penultimate day of testing, and although Sebastian Vettel managed 77 laps on the final day, he was ninth fastest, four seconds off Lewis Hamilton’s fastest lap and the car has yet to run a race distance.
To help matters along, Christian Horner has bought everyone at the Red Bull factory a T-shirt to improve staff morale. Based on the classic wartime poster it reads KEEP CALM and TRUST ADRIAN.
Many people are already questioning why Horner should be placing such faith in Sauber’s Adrian Sutil.
