I want to catch Mercedes - Verstappen
Red Bull's Max Verstappen says the main aim this season is to catch runaway leaders Mercedes.
Defending champions Mercedes have won nine of the 10 races this season, the only blemish coming in Austria, and it looks like a tall order for any team to overhaul the Silver Arrows this year.
Red Bull have shown improvement in recent weeks and they are the only other team to win a Grand Prix this term, with Dutchman Verstappen coming out on top at the team's home event.
Attention now turns to this weekend's outing in Germany and the 21-year-old, who is third in the Drivers' Championship, says everyone is working tirelessly to try and catch Mercedes.
Asked ahead of the German Grand Prix what Red Bull's biggest challenge was in the final fortnight before F1's summer break, he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports: "Closing the gap to Mercedes. We want to win so that's our biggest challenge ahead to try and close that gap.
"Further than I would like [away]. We are getting closer, it's not good enough but we know that so we're working hard to try and close that."
