Red Bull boss Christian Horner slammed the FIA’s decision to intervene and implement new safety measures in relation to porpoising issues that have plagued most of the grid, including Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton.

Blighted by performance problems, notably with “porpoising” and bouncing, the team had chosen to try some radical set-up ideas in a bid to solve their problems.

“Nothing we do to this car seems to work. We were going in different ways but nothing works.
“We keep working on it, but it is what it is and I think this is the car for the year so we just have to tough it out and work hard on building a better car for next year.”
