I know this as an engineer. It is frustrating not only from the driver’s point of view but also to push things off the pit walls with all my might, and no problem when the engine fails or other issues arise. When you’re frustrated, it’s time to make mistakes. They really cry, people. In my case, it looks like a fight when it comes to reliability. If something strange happens, that’s okay.
The Azerbaijan Grand Prix burst into life in the last two laps following the warning. Sergio Perez got his first triumph for Red Bull, as title competitors Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen neglected to score. Equation 1 Managing Director, Motorsport, Ross Brawn examines the key arguments…
This was a lazy burner of a race, with little pockets of hunger. Everything was resembling a sworn-off end. However, one thing you can say about F1 is that there are no inevitable results. The end stages were sensational.
Max made an imperious showing, I can’t blame anything he did – and was at last unfortunate. Sergio was exciting, as well, and Seb is having a second rent of life. It’s a near fiasco; however, for me, my driver of the day was Seb.
It is a genuine delight to see him get rolling once more. Seb’s had several intense seasons. I was one individual who was unsure about the choice Aston made in marking him up. Yet, it’s seeming to be an unexpected call on account of the way he’s driving and the outcomes he’s getting.
He’s reawakened once more. He’s revived. There’s alternate energy about him. Also, it simply shows what the entire mental viewpoint can mean for execution. Seb has ended up in a significantly more pleasant spot, with the correct kind of pressing factor and with engineers with whom he is figuring out how to function. He’s getting results, and he merits it. Bravo.
Max had a perfect race and deserved to win, and Lewis’s latest blunder left his hopes of winning even weaker than ever. So, after being initially frustrated by the heat, what happened later may explain why it’s so helpful. Lewis test over the weekend, which went very well overall. A badly damaged car on Friday and getting a better seat on Saturday is a good move. It wasn’t the fastest car, but he knew he was capable of something.
He was doing a great job, and afterward, I don’t have the foggiest idea of what occurred at the restart. He said it was a switch issue. It was clear the back brakes were obviously exceptionally hot. It didn’t look close that he planned to make the corner. Be that as it may, after Max’s mishap, it keeps the titles totally open. While Mercedes and Lewis will be despondent, given Max’s adversity, it sort of adjusting.
It was uncommon for Mercedes to go to a race with a vehicle so in the wrong way. It very well may be that after their troubles in Monaco, they chose to take an alternate path, which is the thing that put them so flabby on Friday.
If I experienced difficulty with tire temperatures in Monaco, I would have been pushing to attempt an alternate heading. So their battles on Friday might have been a consequence of that.
It is conceivable that when we return to races where they have more certainty, and it’s a known stage, Mercedes will have returned to their best. They have consistently battled a piece at road circuits. Those have never been their solidarity.
Red Bull began for this present year hot, which is the direct inverse of what they did a year ago. They didn’t make their mark until the second 50% of the year.
