No red faces at Red Bull on Turkish return

MARK Webber and Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel will make sure there are no red faces at Red Bull in Turkey this weekend after learning an embarrassing lesson last year.

What could have been a dominant one-two finish ended in rage and recrimination after the two team mates collided while fighting for the lead, gifting McLaren maximum points instead.

Red Bull have won the Formula One driver and constructor championships since then and return to Istanbul leading both again.

"Obviously last year what happened, happened," team principal Christian Horner told Reuters ahead of the fourth round of the campaign and first of the European season, even if the circuit is on the Asian side of the city.

"Lessons were learned from it and we are looking forward to going back to Istanbul," he said. "It's a great challenge of a circuit, especially Turn Eight. The whole team's looking forward to being back in action. Copyright @ 2011 - Theme by NanLimo - Thanks to Google
