Horner  Denies Use Of Traction Control For Vettel

Christian Horner has denied suggestions that Sebastian Vettel’s performance in Singapore was aided by a form of traction control.

Since the German’s dominant win at the Singapore GP, paddock gossip has suggested that Red Bull has found an advantage, with former team boss Giancarlo Minardi recently adding to the debate after observing the cars on the Asian street track. In Korea on Thursday, Lewis Hamilton dropped a less than subtle hint about his thoughts on the subject, while a clearly frustrated Vettel opted to joke about it being a feature on his car.

Red Bull has slammed reports it is flouting the rules as Sebastian Vettel stamps his dominance on the 2013 season.

After Singapore, former F1 team owner Giancarlo Minardi raised doubts about the German’s RB9, saying its handling and engine tone reminded him of traction control.

“Utter nonsense!” Red Bull’s Helmut Marko told the German newspaper Bild.

Reports have suggested Red Bull might actually be mimicking the banned ‘blown exhaust’ era with a clever engine mapping solution.

Bild said F1′s governing FIA would not comment.

With Lotus team mate Kimi Raikkonen hampered by a back injury Romain Grosjean stepped up to take third on the grid in Singapore.

Grosjean was one of only three drivers to have the confidence to gamble on using only supersoft tires to progress from Q1, along with Vettel and Webber. He was only 0.217s off pole man Vettel in Q3, although he also lost out to Nico Rosberg.
