Poll: Will Red Bull continue to struggle at the Canadian GP?

Red Bull head into the Canadian Grand Prix facing uncertainty and unknowns, but how will the team ultimately fare in Montreal?

The Canadian Grand Prix might not be season-defining for Red Bull, but how it responds to three successive underwhelming rounds may well set the tone for when F1 returns to Europe two weeks later.

Whilst the Milton Keynes outfit is expected to be strong at the more traditional Spanish Grand Prix, the trip to Montreal looks less appetising for the team.

Its blend of slow-speed corners and curbs that need to be ridden to extract the best lap times is not a mix that favours Red Bull, but if it can at least be competitive there, the team can head to Barcelona feeling confident that even at circuits not suited to the RB20 it can minimise the hurt in the championship fights.

However, if it cannot match the resurgent McLaren and Ferrari, the insecurity of its position and the pressure of the situation may continue to grow.

McLaren immediately looked a close match upon updating its package in Miami, and was able to run Red Bull close in Imola, too. Ferrari are just behind the pair, but in the right environment can seize the initiative - as we saw in Monaco.

So, as F1 heads back to North America, will the constructors' champions re-find its form, or will it struggle to fend off the opposition for a fourth round in a row?
