No car changes for new flex tests - Horner
Vettel's Red Bull car
(GMM)  Christian Horner does not think Red Bull will need to modify its 2010 car ahead of the Belgian grand prix.

Amid suggestions the front of the RB6 and Ferrari's F10 are running too low to the ground at high speed, the FIA has served notice that scrutineering tests will be amended for Spa-Francorchamps and beyond.

It had been expected that most teams would need to make changes in order to pass the new tests, but team principal Horner does not think Red Bull will be among them.

"Based on the correspondence the FIA has sent us, we believe our car still meets those criteria," he told the print edition of Autosport magazine.

If true, and rival teams do need to make changes to pass the new tests, the Austrian team could find itself with an even bigger performance advantage.

Championship leader and Hungaroring winner Mark Webber thinks the RB6 will be competitive at every remaining circuit in 2010.

"We're a little bit worried about how the long straights might go at some of the other venues, at maybe Monza," he said in a Red Bull video interview.

"But the car is very, very strong at most tracks so we're ready to take on anyone at any venue and I'm looking forward to all the races coming up," added the Australian.
