Red Bull Will Stop Developing 2021 Car
Marko began by analysing the difference between their car and the Mercedes cars
“It’s clear that Mercedes sometimes experiment. Monaco is an example of that for me. Valtteri Bottas was very strong there and Lewis nowhere. In Baku, it was completely reversed. It seems that risks are being taken. With us, fewer adjustments are needed. The car is immediately competitive”
He then confirmed that they had started developing their 2022 car early on
“In Formula 1 you have to take every opportunity. We have the capacity and started developing the 2022 concept early”
He then confirmed that they will develop their car until the summer break and he explained why
“It’s nice that Toto Wolff is worried about our car for next year. Of course we develop the car more until the summer break. We are developing longer and that is because we have a chance to win the world title”
He reiterated that this won’t compromise their plans for next year
“That’s always been our goal. The development of the car for 2022 is never compromised by our program”
He signed off by adding that upgrades will be made throughout the second half of the season even though the development work will have ceased
“We will introduce the upgrades for the current car in the second half of the season, but the work for the development in the wind tunnel is already behind us”
Retired F1 driver Jos Verstappen has stated that “Helmut [Marko] and Toto [Wolff] don’t like each other”
This according to him is “also a part of the competition” between Mercedes and Red Bull
McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl has revealed that after the Hungarian Grand Prix “there will be no more updates this season”
This is so they “can focus one hundred percent of [their] development time on the 2022 car”
“In Austria, Britain and Hungary [they] will have just a few more new parts before running the last races of the season without updates”, Seidl added
BWT CEO Andreas Weissenbacher has stated that “historically, the British racing green is certainly understandable to many, but not to” him
“The [current] Aston Martin doesn’t stand out on TV. Moreover, if the Aston Martin was pink, title sponsor Cognizant would also be happier because the recognition value would be much higher”
“The pink colour has not only become [their] trademark, but has also acquired a certain elegance”, Andreas added
Alfa Romeo's head of track engineering Xevi Pujolar has confirmed that “With Kimi [Raikkonen] next week [they] are going to try a few things and see if [they] can get him into Q2”
He also doesn’t “know what [Kimi’s] plans are [for 2022], so [he] can’t say anything about that”
“But [he] can say that [Kimi’s] motivation and the work with the team is good. And if you see the race he drove [last week], I would say he is pushing”, Xevi added
Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto has reiterated that their “main goal is to make sure [they] make progress”
For them, “third place is a goal, but not the most important thing. The most important thing is to improve as a team and be competitive in the future”
Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff has pointed out that the Austrian football team “didn’t give up when they were 2-0 down”
His “conclusion is that [Mercedes] fight just as hard as the Austrian team did. A real fighter never gives up”
Wolff further elaborated that it “seems that [their] chances are not that great, and that [they] have everything against [them]”
They “have a weaker package and [they] have also already stopped developing [their] car”
“Now [they] really need to find every smallest millimetre where [they] can still get performance out of it, otherwise the world title is lost” Wolff surmised
