Red Bull team boss Christian Horner says Mercedes “will become another factor in this championship“, while advisor Helmut Marko says the German team is second fastest right now.

Mercedes is the talk of the paddock after they showed improved pace during Friday’s Spanish Grand Prix second free practice.

More importantly the team seems to be getting on top of their porpoising issue, which could mean there’s more pace to come.

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner says he’s been saying all along that Mercedes will be back.

“I’ve been saying all year it’s only a matter of time before they sort it out,” the Briton told Sky Sports F1.

“It looks like they’re getting on top of their issues so they will become another factor in this championship.

“They’ve had a strong day, by the looks of things, we’ve got a few bits we need to tidy up but it’s another dynamic,” Horner concluded.

Red Bull’s advisor Dr. Helmut Marko even said Mercedes is now the second fastest team on the grid.

“Us, Mercedes and then Ferrari,” Marko said while predicting how this Sunday’s race will pan out.
