“Red Bull and Ferrari car are equivalent,” Jean Alesi rules out any scope of a miracle in Barcelona

The French racing driver, Jean Alesi presents his view on the Red Bull and the Ferrari car competing for the Formula 1's constructors world championship in 2022.

The Formula 1 2022 season has completed 5 rounds and the battle at the top remains between the Ferrari and the Red Bull. The start of the season worked out rather well for the Ferrari team as they extended their lead in the constructors championship over Red Bull. The Milton Keynes based team suffered numerous DNF’s which hindered them from competing with the prancing horses.

However, the Red Bull team have shifted the tide in last couple of race. The raging bulls scored a 1-2 finish at Imola and followed it up with a victory by Max Verstappen at the Miami Grand Prix. This has translated into a 6 point gap difference between the two teams in the constructors world championship. The French racing driver, Jean Alesi expressed his views on this by sayingThe two cars are equivalent.”

The Red Bull have introduced various upgrades in the season for its RB18 to take the fight to the leaders ahead. The team based out of Maranello are yet to introduce substantial upgrades that can increase their dominance in 2022. Jean Alesi assessed the two constructors by saying “My belief is that you can’t really talk about a Red Bull advantage over Ferrari. There really will be developments, but big miracles will remain out of the question and this season will remain exciting for a long time.”

The Miami Grand Prix witnessed a front-row lockout by the Ferrari in the Qualifying session. The reigning world champion, Max Verstappen started in P3 and overtook Carlos Sainz in P2 in the first corner of the first lap itself. Alesi analysed this by saying “His hesitation at the start I think was dictated by the accidents he suffered. Next time he will behave differently.”

The 2022 season with fresh rules and regulations has definitely provided better racing opportunities for the drivers. Each team and driver learn more about their machinery at each race weekend. The season still entails a prospect of 18 races yet to come with Red Bull and Ferrari locked in a battle for the remainder of the season.
