Red Bull has scored many points in the past three races and proved to be a team in top form, the trend has culminated with a convincing Max Verstappen’s victory in Spielberg, one many thought Ferrari should’ve taken when Mercedes finally had their ‘off day’.
Ferrari is 52 points ahead of Red Bull in the constructors’ championship and thus has a comfortable advantage. Nevertheless, the Italians must be looking over their shoulders at the team from Milton Keynes.
According to Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto, the team takes the latest Red Bull form an incentive to further improve. Although the long-established team was regarded as the title aspirant before the start of the season, Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc have yet to manage to win a race. That’s why Red Bull seems to be the direct opponent of the Italian team.
Binotto on Red Bull: “They have improved, we can see that in the last two races.
“They won in Austria and were competitive [at Silverstone].”
The track in Great Britain perhaps wouldn’t normally be suited to the red bulls, but updates have helped to make a significant improvement on the historic circuit.
“Our packages are now very close together,” Binotto continues. “Whether we or they are second is difficult to say. But it gives us a boost because we know we need to improve.”
Of course, Ferrari is ever watchful of the season’s leaders, Mercedes, but sadly even the most optimistic Tifosi would not really think that a 164 point deficit is ever going to shrink.
Bottas: “Me in Ferrari? Why not?”
Valtteri Bottas, in his last year of contract with the Brackley Team, returns to the subject of renewal and does so at the most favourable moment of his career: “I think I have shown that I deserve a place at Mercedes”.
Bottas 2.0 seems to have given himself a different perspective for his season but also in the language of the body: proud look, high head and uncultivated beard being the obvious evidence to a casual observer.
Bottas isn’t stupid, and knows to beat Hamilton in a dominant manufacturer team geared toward it’s number one driver, it is simply not enough to have…….. READ MORE
Haas rumour: Grosjean out by German GP? Ocon in
Sources within the paddock at the British GP have indicated that there’s yet more trouble afoot at the Haas F1 team – not only off track with the ridiculous shenanigans with principle title sponsor Rich Energy, but also with the driver pairing of Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen.
Team boss Gunther Steiner has had reoccurring problems with his driver since last season, namely that of colliding with each other, his outrageous reactions made famous by the Netflix series ‘Drive to survive’ so the latest rumour shouldn’t really come as much surprise to readers familiar with the show.
Last night, a source from……….READ MORE
