Red Bull strong enough to win the last two races - Horner

Barring any unforeseen grid penalties, Red Bull's Christian Horner believes his team can cap off its 2017 season with a clean sweep.

Max Verstappen's current form and his recent win in Mexico City have provided ample proof of the efficiency of the Milton Keynes-based outfit's RB13 package.

Red Bull is now performing on a par with Mercedes and Ferrari, at least when its reliability isn't undermined by the Renault engine.

And Horner sees no reason why the team can't win in Brazil in Abu Dhabi, on its own merit.

"Yes. Subject to penalties," he told Motorsport.com.

"The last four races we have had the quickest car on a Sunday. Hopefully Brazil can be a good track for us, and why not Abu Dhabi? It would be great to finish the season with at least one more victory."

One Red Bull driver is at risk of incurring a penalty however. Daniel Ricciardo owed his demise from the Mexican GP to another power unit failure and an initial analysis appear to indicate that his MGU-H element may have to replaced.

"I think we have to go through all the bits and work out what we have got left and what we haven't," said Horner.

"I haven't sat down with the guys to go through it in detail but I hope that we might have something."
