Mark Webber: 'Home track doesn't suit Red Bull'

Former Red Bull driver Mark Webber is not expecting his old team to shine too brightly this weekend in Austria.

Former Red Bull driver Mark Webber has said that he is not expecting his old team to shine too brightly this weekend in Austria.

Once called the A1-Ring, the 'Red Bull Ring' is now the energy drink company's home race.

However, teen sensation Max Verstappen warned: "It might not be the most ideal circuit for our car in terms of performance but it's still very enjoyable."

Teammate Daniel Ricciardo agreed: "I would love a few more corners but it is a fun track for what it is, quite flowing and fast."

Red Bull have been showing increasingly resurgent form of late, but Australian Webber thinks that the long straights of the Red Bull Ring will not suit the Renault-powered package.

He told Servus TV: "It's the narrow, winding tracks that are best for them.

"The Red Bull Ring is not really a Red Bull circuit, as there are too many long straights.

"It would be better for them, to show what their chassis can do, if it rains," Webber added.

Red Bull's Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat placed 10th and 12th in last year's race.
