Sydney, July 31 : Red Bull chief Christian Horner has slammed critics for questioning their car’s legality after the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Horner said the manufacturers should be praised for taking an adventurous and creative approach to car design rather than being criticized after accusations about their engine mapping and suspension setting devices.
Horner added the fact that his outfit has faced no penalties this season shows they are playing straight.
“At the end of the day, it is down to the FIA (International Motoring Federation) and the stewards to decide whether the car is legal or not. Every single time our car has been questioned by other teams, it has always complied with the rules,” News. com. au quoted Horner, as saying.
Both Red Bull drivers were down in the placings in Sunday''s race won by Briton Lewis Hamilton for McLaren, with dual world champion Sebastian Vettel finishing fourth and Australia''s Mark Webber eighth.
Red Bull leads the constructors'' championship with 246 points ahead of McLaren (193) and the much-improved Lotus (192). (ANI)
