Agreed, anything other than a 1-2 finish in that car is a failure.

Red Bull always seem super sharp and crafty.
cant disagree with this, and if they finally get to Mercedes pace they could win a lot more races, because they've been race sharpened strategy wise....they've had to earn their podiums the hard way so had to think outside the box

with that said, red bull are in an easy position at the moment with Mercedes too far out front and Ferrari too far back to cause trouble, so they are in a great position to roll the dice and look like heros…..whether the same strategy would work in a dog fight, who knows!

Definitely there is less chance of them throwing something away with their calls at the moment. Easier to chase innit?
