Red Bull to assess 2014 championship strategy after Austria

Red Bull F1 team will take stock of their 2014 Formula 1 campaign after their home race in Austria next month.

That is the claim of the energy drink company’s Helmut Marko, despite team owner Dietrich Mateschitz insisting that Red Bull will keep pushing for the title.

Mercedes has easily won the opening five grands prix of 2014, but Red Bull’s rate of improvement since a disastrous winter season has also been impressive.

“The Grand Prix of Austria is a benchmark,” Marko, referring to the June 22 race at the renovated Red Bull-Ring, is quoted by APA news agency.

“By then we will have all the parameters with the engine all together,” he added. “Then we’ll see how things look.” (GMM)
