Whilst Red Bull might be suffering from reliability woes - which has meant they've been forced to run at reduced power - their cornering speeds aren't to be laughed at.

Jenson Button witnessed the RB10's downforce advantage during testing and, whilst he questioned their straight-line speed, he was under no illusion that the car has potential.

"I was driving with [Daniel] Ricciardo for quite a few laps and he couldn't get past me on the straights," explained the McLaren driver.

"He overtook me around the outside of turn 11 instead, which is a high-speed left-hander. I've never seen anything like that before."

He's certain the championship-winning team will be at the front if they can work with Renault to fix the issues they're experiencing.

"If they can complete a race distance, they'll be near the front," he insisted.
