Belgian F1 GP 2022: Red Bull makes fun of Mercedes
Lto the superiority of Red Bull compared to the rest of the teams, Ferrari included, was almost insulting. Starting from 14th place, Verstappen not only managed to come back, but to reach the top spot with ease and solvency so that no one else could take it from him. His car was going much faster than any of the others on the track. Something that had already been shown also in the ranking where he achieves the fastest lap with an abyssal distance with the following pilots.
In Spa theoretically they were going to change part of the basic standards after the strong rebound effect that many drivers experience in their cars during the first part of the season. Several voices were raised to say that the most affected should theoretically be Ferrari and Red Bull, who so far had been the fastest on the track.
But the truth is that those of Christian Horner has adapted perfectly to the circuit. For him, it was the characteristics of the track that made the difference throughout the weekend.
“At first glance, I should probably thank Toto!” joked Horner of Mercedes protesting the strong bouncing effect of their Grand Prix cars.. “We have a very efficient car. We found a very good set-up and Max was in phenomenal form from the first lap.
Even if the car had a dizzying pace throughout the weekend, he does not want to minimize the good performance of his driver… and more leader than ever in the World Championship. “Max still had to work his way through the peloton. and he did it very effectively in the early laps,” he says.
He knows it was a memorable race. It had been a long time since we had seen such superiority. “The pace we had with Max and Checo was enough for me to overtake Carlos and bring home one of the most dominant performances I’ve ever seen.” we have as a team since 2010 or 2013‘, supposes Horner’.
