Marco: We are surprised by the problems of Ferrari and Mercedes

Red Bull motorsport adviser Helmut Marko said the problems of Ferrari and Mercedes rivals came as a surprise to his team. Red Bull Racing hoped that the increased wear on the rear tires would be eliminated during the winter in Maranello, and that Mercedes would also join them, but that did not happen.

“The team has done well,” said Racingnews365’s Helmut Marko. – We have optimized those parts of the machine that have not remained optimized since last year. It was a very big surprise to us that Ferrari still had the same problems as last year and Mercedes’ problems got even worse.

I don’t know how quickly they can resolve the situation. I think Mercedes will solve their difficulties faster than Ferrari, but of course they will have to take budgetary constraints into account. Because of this, they will not be able to build the B version of the machine.

Aston Martin’s speed has been a pleasant surprise this season. The fact that their car is similar to ours, part of Formula 1 and politics – these things happen all the time. We once invited Adrian Newey from McLaren and Pierre Vache from Sauber in the same way.

Asked if Red Bull Racing can win every race of the season, Marco said: “This is an extraordinary and unattainable goal. Don’t forget the sprint races – we still don’t know if their format will be changed.

Last year in Brazil it turned out that the data we received on the simulator did not match what we saw on the track. And we couldn’t help it – things like that happen sometimes. Or last year in Austria, Charles Leclerc handled rear tire wear much better than we did.”
