Red Bull: Problems with KERS and communications

Stephan Heublein

Red Bull had to battle on several fronts in China: against the tyres, the competition, their own KERS – and a wet microphone.

Christian Horner had mixed feelings after the Chinese GP. On the one hand, Mark Webber had delivered a bravado performance, advancing from 18th on the grid to third on the podium while on the other, Sebastian Vettel yielded pole position at the start, then fought his way back into the lead but still finished as runner-up.
