Sepang: The Red Bull Formula One racing team is eyeing a turnaround in the upcoming Malaysian Grand Prix after failing to make good use of the front row start in Melbourne last week.

Mark Webber, who started in second place, could only finish sixth in the Australian Grand Prix and admitted that the team needed improvements after the first race of the season, reports Xinhua.

"It's like literally doing an exam...Even if you are winning, you are still learning. When you got beaten, obviously you learn more," he said at the Sepang International Circuit on Thursday. Webber said the team didn't need to panic as the season is still in an early stage.
