The one between Red Bull Honda and Mercedes in this 2021 it is an all-out hand-to-hand battle both on the track and at the political and regulatory level. In fact, the two teams that are dominating the championship do not spare themselves even in front of the press and it has been – for months now – a succession of innuendo and accusations, on both sides. The attention in the last weekend of the Qatar Grand Prix has been polarized on two aspects, that relating to the rear wing, for which the FIA is testing new load tests and would be ready for a new technical directive before Jeddah, and that of the power unit, due to the engine brought to Interlagos by Mercedes, defined as a ‘rocket’ by the Red Bull men.
Helmut Marko he seemed reassured by Max Verstappen’s comeback in Losail, which quickly took him from seventh starting position to second at the finish: “Now we have to win one of the last two races, it’s very simple. We have to do everything perfectly in one weekend. It’s a fight between Max and Lewis, the others aren’t there“. The optimism of the Red Bull director is corroborated by what he observed about Hamilton’s W12 in Qatar: “Its engine was not as powerful as in Brazil and I don’t think they used their ‘special’ rear wing here. And in fact the difference in top speed was smaller. In short, we do not give up“, He explained to the Dutch of the De Telegraaf.
