Horner: Mercedes stronghold Silverstone poses big challenge

The Red Bull boss is optimistic heading into the British Grand Prix, but with the Silverstone layout tending to favour Mercedes, could this be the Austrian team's biggest challenge so far this season?

Christian Horner has been speaking about the scale of the challenge ahead for Red Bull this weekend, as they aim to deny Mercedes of a place at the front of the grid for the first time in nine years.

Red Bull are bolstered by the form of Max Verstappen, who was fastest in both practice sessions this weekend ahead of the F1 British Grand Prix - but that doesn't necessarily give us a true indication of their relative race pace.

"I didn't realize it was nine consecutive poles (for Mercedes at Silverstone), but I mean, I think that really sums it up," Horner told RacingNews365.com and other selected members of the media when asked about Mercedes' record at the circuit.

"I mean, this has been a complete powerhouse and stronghold for Mercedes, and particularly Lewis [Hamilton], who has been phenomenal around this track for more than a decade.

"So yeah, it's a different challenge, a big challenge. Obviously we've had a reasonably sensible first session, but, you know, it's a different weekend, a different format, there's more at stake, you know, 29 points available this weekend."

Red Bull are currently on a fine run of form, one that will give the team confidence ahead of this Sunday's Grand Prix.

The Austrian outfit currently lead Mercedes by 44 points in the constructor standings, which is exactly why Horner is urging his team to carry their momentum into the second half of the season.

"Yeah, you know, we're under under no illusions, we've got to keep the momentum rolling, we've got to keep the results coming in, and you obviously, keep the pressure on," Horner added.

"So there's a long, long way to go. We're not even at the halfway point of this championship. So there's a lot of racing still to come."
