Toto Wolff It is believed that under the new regulations, there will be greater distances between teams in F1 teams
largeWe have two games, it is too early to do in-depth analysis, but the fact is that the F1 World Cup is waiting for more opportunities. Red Bull Become a very difficult opponent Mercedes. In the middle area, everything is very level. McLaren and Ferrari The display is very consistent, while Aston Martin and AlphaTauri in the Alps They also managed to score. behind, Alfa Romeo, Williams and Haas They are the ones that provide the worst feeling.Although it is necessary to clarify Kimi Raikkonen He was ranked 9th in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, but penalty kicks left him lifeless.
In short: Proposed a 2021 championship that is more competitive than expected.Just take a look Valtteri Bottas has an accident with George Russell When I fired in the middle of the cannon barrel in Imola…but as regulations change, all of this may change in 2022. The goal of F1 is to be more passionate in the race, which is achieved by matching the level of the car, but this is not what you think Toto Wolff That will happen next year.
The boss of Mercedes and the ruler of the hybrid era (who have won all the last seven championships) believe that equality between these ten teams will not be this season. “By maintaining rules over a period of time, the grid tends to be balanced. For the above teams, even with greater efforts, the benefits are getting smaller and smaller. At some point, the lagging team will move further, and even everything will move forward. Just check the categories in Imola. Everything is very even. I think this is the direction we should go. But I think that next year, we will face a completely different situation, and the power grids are once again far apart.. The gap between the teams will reopen. Mercedes may not be the leader, but we will return to the starting point. I assure you,” he observed.
So far, Red Bull has won one game (Vistappen In Imola, and was initially conquered Hamilton On the Sakhir circuit. Seven-time single point leader (Lewis 44 points, Max 43 points). Logically, this equality disturbs Wolfe, who is used to his team taking advantage of more advantages (in the constructor, 53 of the energy drink team scored 60 points).
“I think we are currently behind Red Bull in all areas of the car. First, we must reach them, and then surpass them. I think the god of racing blessed us for Bahrain’s victory. Very good, we took full advantage of the power of the car. If there are no setbacks in qualifying and we go all out, I think we are two tenths behind Max Verstappen on the leaderboard. We are not in front. But in this category, you can always change everything from one moment to the next. Lewis managed to create a super circle. That’s why he got pole position. We are doing everything we can to change this situation because now we believe that Red Bull is above us“, he publicly stated that he would complete it.
