Christian Horner admits that, after Daniel Ricciardo’s great win in Hungary, the next two tracks will be much harder for Red Bull.

It’s been clear all season that the RB10 has suffered at high-speed venues, and Horner expects all the Mercedes teams to surge ahead.

“You never know, it might be wet at Spa, and Monza might put a load more corners in,” joked Horner. “Singapore has to be the next golden opportunity for us, in reality. I think it will be damage limitation in the next two races, because Force India will suddenly reappear, Williams will be quick, McLaren will be quick, Mercedes will be quick, so we’ve got to take what we can out of the next two races, and then for the flyaways really try and set things up.”
