“They will come with a copy of Red Bull”: the former Formula 1 who anticipated a move from a rival team

Compared to the 2021 season, where Mercedes and Red Bull they fought wheel to wheel in each race until the end of the championship for the world title, in 2022 it is far from being repeated. With Max Verstappen at the helm and Lewis Hamilton quite late, the Austrian team will again lift the constructors’ trophy after eight uninterrupted years at Brackley. In this sense and in view of the development of the next car, a former F1 driver assured that the team of George Russell and Lewis Hamilton would copy that of Milton Keynes.

Marc Surer, former Formula 1 driver and expert, analyzed the Grand Cirque 2022 season and did not hesitate to assure that Mercedes will copy the chassis of Red Bull for the W14, the single-seater it will develop for next year. With the big advantage that the Austrian team has in the championship, the German team is already looking ahead to next season and will take things from the competition to get back to the top. Moreover, he assured that Mercedes’ problem lies in the design of its sidepods.

Led by Russell, Mercedes added good points in the second half of the season.

“Mercedes didn’t build the perfect chassis this year. Next year they will come with a copy of Red Bullat least in terms of concept, then they will come back. The fact that the car is now too slow on the straights is probably related to the sidepods. Just looking at this car, you can imagine there’s more turbulence in the air or more resistance in the air,” Surer told Motorsport-Total.com.
