New Delhi:

Red Bull has had a strategy which has given them a comfortable lead and despite falling a little behind in the last five races, team owner Christian Horner has said he does not want to bring any major changes in the remaining contests.

Although Sebastian Vettel, who currently enjoys a lead of 83 points, as well as Mark Webber had called for a re-think after the Hungarian Grand Prix in which they finished second and fifth respectively. Horner though adopted a hard-line approach. "We work as a team and the drivers don't need to tell the team we need to respond," he told BBC Sport.

Horner further adds that to say that the tide has turned against his team would be incorrect. "Ferrari and McLaren are going through a competitive phase but we're still right there. We're pushing flat out."

Though Red Bull are 103 points ahead of their nearest rival in McLaren, speculation at large and confidence that Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton, the two McLaren racers, are enjoying particularly, would be a concern regardless of whether a change in strategy is adopted or not.
