Formulation 1 sporting director Ross Brown summed up the outcomes of the Bahrain Grand Prix …
Grosjean’s accident shocked everybody. I have never seen this in Formulation 1 for a very long time. My first thought is the place does this flash come from if the gas tank is effectively protected? It’s clear that there are oils and different liquids within the automobile, however I used to be very shocked to see such a fireplace. Solely later did it turn out to be clear why the gas had spilled.
I used to be shocked to see the flash. Then I thought of what occurred to the motive force. And I felt nice aid once I noticed that Roman bought out of the automobile. The director of the published didn’t present the recording of the accident till we discovered that the whole lot was high quality with Roman – these are our guidelines. I believe everyone seems to be now pleased with how the safety measures applied over the previous few years have labored. The Halo system performed an enormous function in getting issues proper.
Now the FIA, along with the group, wants to investigate the dynamics of the accident, to grasp the way it developed. The pressure of the blow was very critical. There are accidents, the implications of which can’t be managed, however it’s essential perceive why the automobile was in a position to fly via the barrier, why it broke in half and why there was a fireplace. That is the one method to keep away from repetition sooner or later.
The FIA will take care of this to seek out solutions, however for now, all that is still is to take off your hat. The protection measures labored, the motive force escaped critical penalties after the nightmare accident, and the race continued.
Racers react otherwise once they see a critical accident. Some individuals suppose that bypassing the implications, it speaks of the protection of recent machines. I talked to a number of riders after the accident, all of them requested me how Roman was. This nervous them within the first place. Most of them have been in a position to come to phrases with the accident and proceed the race, glad that the motive force himself left the automobile and was roughly high quality.
Lewis had an ideal race. With out the slightest mistake. He is in unbelievable form proper now, it does not appear to be somebody can problem him.
And I am glad that we got here up with a special situation for the second race in Bahrain – with totally different sensations, with a special actuality.
Alex Albon is a bit fortunate. The departure of Sergio Perez helped him to climb the rostrum for the second time, however he was prepared to make use of any alternative if it appeared.
This 12 months was tough for him, however in Bahrain he was quick throughout the race and confirmed character, pulling himself collectively after an disagreeable Friday accident. This podium will add confidence to him. Now we have to consolidate this outcome.
Racing Level might really feel annoyed that they did not do their job this 12 months. In Bahrain, first Lance retired, then within the final laps the ability plant from Sergio Perez refused, depriving him of a well-deserved podium.
They’ve a very good automobile. As we all know, at the start of the season there have been some doubts about its compliance with the rules, however that is the second or third quickest automobile within the championship, with which the group couldn’t attain the utmost.
They’ll nonetheless compete for third place within the constructors’ championship, however they are going to be dissatisfied if they can’t win it. Generally unfortunate, and typically different components intervene.
Irrespective of how the season ends, they need to look again and perceive that they’ve considerably strengthened their place. They’re preventing with the three strongest Formulation 1 groups – it is a critical progress.
Racing Level is inferior in what the McLaren group is now robust. Now McLaren is a wonderfully fine-tuned mechanism. Everybody works as one. Andreas Seidl has achieved an awesome job to convey the group collectively. Mclaren at the moment are the favorites for third place within the constructors’ championship, with a 17 level lead over Racing Level.
It will likely be fascinating to maintain observe of their progress subsequent 12 months once they change to Mercedes engines. Now there’s concord on this group, and I do not suppose that with the arrival of Daniel to exchange Carlos subsequent 12 months, they may lose something.
