Red Bull team principal Christian Horner knows that his drivers Verstappen and Alexander Albion will have to improve their performances if they are to keep up with Mercedes.
"We need to find more performance because they simply are just quicker than us at the moment," Horner said.  
"Yes, if we’re being sharp on strategy and with his [Verstappen's] racecraft we can keep ourselves in the mix but on outright pace obviously they have a very dominant car at the moment. We need to try and close that gap."
Mercedes are sitting at the top of Constructors' standings and they are followed by Red Bull and McLaren respectively.
