Last season was all about race wins for Red Bull, but heading to Bahrain this weekend, Mark Webber admits that a podium finish would go down quite nicely.
So dominant in 2011, winning 12 of the 19 races on offer and storming to the Drivers' and Constructors' titles, Red Bull have struggled thus far this term.
With a best placing of second - achieved by Sebastian Vettel in Australia - and three fourth places to their name, the Milton Keynes outfit are in an unfamiliar position.
Webber admits that heading to the Bahrain International Circuit, where neither the Drag Reduction System nor have Pirelli tyres have been used, a podium finish would be a good result.
"We haven't been to the circuit for two years and the last time we raced on the current track layout was in 2009. We also haven't been there with Pirelli tyres or the DRS, so it's going to be interesting to see how those new features go; the ingredients are all there for another exciting Grand Prix," explained the Australian.
"It's going to be important to understand the tyres quickly and you need good top speed and braking. It's a hot race, hotter than it was in Australia and Shanghai and more like the temperature in Malaysia. It would be nice to get a podium before we go back to Europe."
World Champion Sebastian Vettel expects the race to be a taxing one on all the cars, with the environmental variables making racing tough.
"The track requires a lot from the drivers, because the constantly changing character of the corners means you never really get time to settle in to a lap," said Vettel.
"Also, as the track's built in the middle of the desert, you have to manage the sand there. It moves with the wind, so it can suddenly appear in new places on the track on each lap - so you're never quite sure where it will be slippery.
"For the teams, it's always a challenge to anticipate the grip levels for the race. In Friday Practice, when the track is still "green", you often require a different set-up than you need for Sunday. Due to the nature of the circuit, the brakes are in high demand."
