Mercedes clearly had the upper hand over arch rivals Red Bull in Sao Paolo and their confidence seemed to be leaking as Lewis Hamilton took the top honors in incredible fashion. However, entering Qatar Grand Prix, Red Bull Racing are surely going to keep a close eye upon the rear wing and steering column of the Brackley based team.
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said at the press conference. The Milton Keynes-based team decided not to protest against the final result and the W12 in Brazil, but he does not want to rule that out for the final three Grands Prix this season.
What was opinionated by Christian Horner?
Christian Horner stated, “We will follow the situation and depends on what happens this weekend and what we see. Its even more pertinent to the circuits that follow.”
Mercedes and Red Bull will be keeping a constant eye on each other’s bolides in 2021. “Mercedes have paid a lot of attention to our car through the season and we are doing the same. We want to make attention its equal playing field.”
There is a suspicion that the Brackley based team is doing something with its rear wing that creates less air resistance, which allows for higher speeds even without DRS. “Yes”, Christian Horner replied. “There’s specific regulations about this. The directives that came out prior to Baku had material effect. This is something even more advanced, hidden in the way that it operates. Harder to spot with a camera. You can see straight line performance since Hungary and the last two Grands prix has gone exponential.”
