Jun.10 (GMM) A new, shorter nose is not the only change Red Bull has made ahead of the Canadian grand prix.
The team has also brought some software and procedural changes to Montreal, in the wake of the bungled pitstop that cost Daniel Ricciardo victory in Monaco.
The Australian was furious after Monaco but he said on Thursday: “I think more important than how to move on is how to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
“I knew they were going to take it seriously but I’ve been assured that if we’re in that position again then it won’t happen, so that was obviously what I needed and what I wanted to hear,” Ricciardo added.
It is a crucial weekend for Red Bull, with both Ricciardo and Max Verstappen now equipped with Renault’s engine upgrade that will be put to the test on the demanding straights of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
“This race will tell us about the rest of the season,” Ricciardo is quoted by Auto Motor und Sport. “If we are competitive, we can fight anywhere.”
