Red Bull halt expectation
16 February 2005 –
Guenther Steiner is playing down expectations ahead of Red Bull's Melbourne F1 debut. Bought from Ford in November, the team is running their 'RB1' car - basically Jaguar's intended 'R5' model - in Barcelona testing this week.
"I'm not going to make a prediction," said the defiant, newly-appointed technical director, a German-speaking Italian. "It would be wrong, though, to expect too much."
Steiner, last year working in DTM, problematically filled Jaguar's technical director role in 2001.
