No ‘B’ car in 2007 – Red Bull’s Webber

Red Bull will make steady improvements throughout 2007 rather than introduce a ‘B’-spec car, according to Mark Webber.

Asked if a new chassis for the Renault-powered package was on the agenda, the Australian driver told F1’s official website: “I don’t think so.

“We are not bringing a B-car like some others.”

Officials for the Austrian-owned squad have been buoyed by the pace of the ‘RB3’ contender in the last two races, insisting that – despite recurring reliability flaws – Red Bull is now the fourth quickest team.

Referring to Bahrain, the car’s designer Adrian Newey told Speed TV: “We were quicker than Renault, and we were quicker than Toyota.”

The Briton also revealed that, like most other teams, the RB3 will be updated for the Spanish GP next month.

“We said all along that the cars are very new cars and we haven’t properly developed them yet,” Newey insisted.

“We’ve got some new parts for Barcelona.”
