Mark Webber insists the reaction was not an over-the-top "kneejerk" one, with his teammate Sebastian Vettel explaining that there are a "couple of things" that should make the RB7 more competitive this weekend.

"We are trying to do what we can conceptually for our car that's going to work for the remaining races and you cannot redesign the car in three days," Australian Webber, referring to the short turnaround between the Nurburgring and this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix, said.

German Vettel revealed that his team had a "deep look" at the numbers after the defeat to superior McLaren and Ferrari cars a few days ago.

"We have a couple of things playing around trying to make the package a little bit more competitive once again," said the world championship leader.

If we do nothing, we will soon be overtaken

And he is quoted by Germany's Auto Motor und Sport: "If we do nothing, we will soon be overtaken, but I know something you do not know about our development programme."

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso however is quoted by Marca newspaper as insisting that with a strong car and huge championship gaps, "I doubt Red Bull are very nervous".
