The last Grand Prix in Bahrain gave a small preview of what can happen this season. The team Red bull gave a great show of improvement and was ahead of Mercedes throughout the weekend. However, a controversial decision by the sports commissioners took away the victory from Max verstappen. «We are on par«, They warn from Red Bull.
The Red Bull leaders are in high spirits. The result of the last weekend did not completely satisfy them, but the performance shown throughout the weekend was superior to that of their maximum rival. That is why many hope that this year they can finally beat Mercedes and win the Constructors’ championship.
The main advisor of the Austrian team, Helmut Marko ensures that his team is one step ahead of Mercedes this year, adding that although they were not in first place, they were faster than them. “With our current package, which includes a more competitive engine, I think we are on par with Mercedes. Of course, we know that we have to be perfect to beat them, “said Marko.
Max, the candidate
On the other hand, Max’s father, Jos Verstappen did not hesitate to put his son as a candidate for the Imola Grand Prix next weekend. “It is obvious that Red Bull had a car to win. We all saw it. Mercedes just made a good strategy, but the good thing about this year is that we know we will compete for victory in the next race. We haven’t had that in recent years »
David coulthard, one of Red Bull’s latecomers and current commentator, went a bit further and made it clear that Verstappen is the leading candidate to win this year’s title. «Max arrives, he is the man. I think this is his year to win the Championship, “said the former pilot of the Formula 1.
