Red Bull team principal Christian Horner is sure that the squad will bounce back from an underwhelming start to the 2015 campaign.

Red Bull has accrued only 23 points this season to sit a distant fourth in the Constructors' championship, but Horner is adamant that the outfit will respond once the European stint of the year begins in Spain next weekend.

"Well, far from where we expected to be and ultimately disappointing, but what we can see is we're making progress," Horner said when asked to assess the opening four races. "I think Bahrain was probably our most competitive race so far, we can see on the engine side that Renault are making some steps forward as well.

"I think in this two week period to re-group and Renault to have done plenty of running on their dynos and iron out some of the issues they've had, has been very timely and hopefully we can use that to great effect in Barcelona next week."

Horner believes that Red Bull has the resources to put Williams under pressure and possibly challenge Ferrari.

"Our target is to keep improving the car," he explained in an interview published on Red Bull's website. "After a difficult start last year we bounced back from pre-season testing to the first race and we want to try and make a big step forward in the next few races to put Williams and maybe even Ferrari under a bit of pressure.

"The team has been used to winning over the last few years and it's tough when you're not running at the front where that's where you're used to being.

"But the great thing here is that everyone is using it as a motivation to get back there. Everyone has got their head down, everybody's working incredibly hard and we can see progress in many areas."
