Red Bull has succeeded in readying a 'double diffuser' solution in time for this weekend's Monaco grand prix.

Until mere days ago, designer Adrian Newey admitted it was "touch and go" whether the RB5, featuring unique pullrod rear suspension, could be modified in time to accommodate the controversial concept.

But team driver Sebastian Vettel has now been quoted by an Austrian television broadcast as confirming that his car will indeed have a double diffuser in the Principality.

The German, however, expects the true effect of the development to only become clear once the calendar moves on to the more conventional circuit in Turkey two weeks later.

Vettel told the ORF programme Sport am Sonntag: "But if the diffuser helps us, then it will also help in Monaco."
