The big headlines in Melbourne on Wednesday morning had Mark Webber telling his local media that he wasn't going to win the Australian Grand Prix. This might be a disappointment for the Aussie fans who were expecting more, but it was not a great surprise to most of us that Webber was being a bit downbeat.
Red Bull Racing has not had a hugely encouraging winter as the new RB3 has not shown the performance that the team was expecting. It was inevitable that the combination of an Adrian Newey chassis and the World Championship-winning Renault V8 engine would take time to hone, but nevertheless the starting point was not what either Webber or David Coulthard were expecting.
The team has certainly made progress since January, but so has everyone else, and a washed-out final shakedown in Magny-Cours didn't help. We asked team principal Christian Horner for his thoughts on the season ahead.
