DThat first race of a very long Formula 1 season is imminent. Tension and tension increase around the Bahrain Grand Prix.
Who has the fastest car?
Red Bull – Now. This is what the results of the test drive in Bahrain show. The Austrian team’s car ran without a breakdown for three days. Max Verstappen twice set the fastest time. No one drove faster than the Dutchman. The sector bar talks in favor of a car that can “curve” across all sections of the track. Honda, Red Bull’s sports director Helmut Marco, told faz.net, there was a jump with the new drive.
The short test phase in mid-March also did not give racing teams more information about the strength of the competition, with the team’s boss coming back with a forecast until the first qualifying on Saturday. Red Bull rejects the favorite role, with Mercedes only seeing himself up close. The World Championship team had to contend with an unstable rear end and was not going as desired and as usual. “They will solve it,” Marco said, “but it will take a little time.” McLaren seems to be the first candidate for third place in the Pekingese order, the first time on the road with Mercedes Drive.
What can Mick Schumacher achieve?
Haas and Ferrari lead his team’s boss attention. The first Formula 1 racing car made by the Germans, which grew up near Lake Geneva, is probably the weakest model in the region. The racing team is not thinking about further development. Americans are focusing on racing car design for 2022, which provides a chance for further leaps due to major rule improvements. The 22-year-old son of a record world champion would have to circle in the backcourt and go on to beat his teammate Nikita Masepin.
Will Sebastian Vettel win the race again?
Yes, if Aston Martin is fast enough. The four-time world champion’s new racing team won a single named Racing Point last year. The racing car looked like a really good imitation of Mercedes, not because of the Mercedes drive in the rear. Complaints about it have subsided, as have hymns of praise. During the test drive, Vettel was not leaving due to technical problems and then did not pick up speed. The last. Hessian appeared calm in Bahrain on Thursday. As if he knew what his AMR21 had to offer. In any case, the story of a famous movie star as the miraculous, rocket-like premise of Secret Agent 007. And so Vettel named his youngest model in memory of Bond Girl “Honey Rider”. Still a good name.
Will Hamilton leave after this season?
This is the big question. The Formula 1 main driver has agreed with Mercedes on a contract extension for this season only. It may be that the epidemic had its share in it. In major crises, corporations such as Daimler and the other two shareholders in the team may or may not meet all the requirements of the best driver. At the age of 36, he undoubtedly has a meaningful goal in mind: the eighth world title. He then overtook Michael Schumacher in this category as well, finishing the year as the most successful formula driver in history.
What is left then?
In 2022, major rule reforms would give all serious oppressors a chance to get Mercedes on the way, giving them a hard time. It is very possible that after 15 years, the winner Hamilton no longer wishes to continue to invest so much in the roundabout. This was also the reason Michael Schumacher left in 2006: exhaustion. “I don’t think so,” says Hamilton in Bahrain, “let’s see in eight months.” The season ends in Advent.
Minor design rules and reductions in the chassis have reduced the downforce of racing cars by nearly ten percent. Half the amount of this loss must be repaid before the first race. Because major rule reform was postponed until 2022 due to the epidemic, engineers did not expect a change in the Peking order in the fall. Only 30 percent of the cars were allowed to be replaced. The test drive indicated that interference and responses increased power density. On top as well as in midfield. In any case, the number of cars was to increase. The minimum weight has increased by 3 kg to 749 kg.
