Key, who has replaced Giorgio Ascanelli , stopped short of suggesting that the team would write off 2013 and is also targeting a step forward then. “With 2014 coming in after the next car we’re doing, it’s a completely different development direction so there is not an awful lot of carryover,” said Key.

Mark Webber described Red Bull’s Belgian Grand Prix one-two as one of its best ever team achievements, particularly given the pre-race concern over tyre blistering. Leading teams had asked if they could be given dispensation to take on fresh Pirellis for the first stint following blistering problems in qualifying, but the request was denied as the officials felt the high wear was due to set-up choices rather than an inherent tyre issue. Red Bull was one of those worst affected by the situation, with both its cars pitting within the first four laps of the race, but Sebastian Vettel and Webber still had the pace to come back through to first and second.
