Dietrich Mateschitz is confident about Red Bull's ability to win the 2010 World Championship.

But the Austrian billionaire, who owns the famous energy drink as well as the Milton Keynes based team, admitted he is disappointed with the score card so far this season.

With 9 of this year's 19 Grands Prix now run, the RB6 has usually proved the quickest in the field.

But Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber are only third and fourth in the drivers' standings, while McLaren is also leading the constructors' table.

"I am satisfied with the drivers and the car," Mateschitz told the Salzburger Nachrichten newspaper.

"What I am not satisfied about is the score, because on paper we should have a lead rather than a deficit.

"Now we have to make up lost ground," he said.

Asked if he thought Red Bull was capable of winning the titles, he answered: "Of course, because expecting anything else would be absurd.

"If someone with our potential cannot expect to win the World Championship, then who?"

Rear wing Idea 'Highly Dangerous' - Glock

Timo Glock has joined a group of F1 drivers who think the 'proximity' wing idea is a bad one.

FOTA chairman Martin Whitmarsh has admitted that the proposal, with chasing drivers able to press a button and boost straightline speed next season, might not see the light of day.

"I think it's highly dangerous," Glock is quoted as saying by the website of the Swiss publication Motorsport Aktuell.

"From the viewpoint of safety, I think it's a wrong decision."

The speed difference between the Lotus and Red Bull cars was arguably the cause of last Sunday's huge crash at Valencia involving Mark Webber.

"We've seen what can happen if the guy behind has significantly more speed," Virgin driver Glock said.

"Mark was just lucky that there was enough run-off and he could just run into the tyre barrier," added the German, suggesting that the return of KERS in 2011 could boost the speed differences even more.

"The drivers all have the same opinion; it is clearly too dangerous," Glock said of the adjustable rear wing idea.

"Perhaps the (GPDA) drivers' union can do something. It should definitely be talked about."
