Red Bull were the best of the rest behind Mercedes in 2020. They are now hoping to bridge the gap to Mercedes so that they can become championship contenders and as such, any advantage would be helpful. Red Bull team advisor Helmut Marko has now exposited on one such possible advantage during an interview with RTL

0:00 - Situation At Mercedes That Marko Hopes Could Help Out Red Bull
1:09 - Fast Feed
I'm your host Dillon Shelley and first up on Formula World:
Situation At Mercedes That Marko Hopes Could Help Out Red Bull
Marko began by revealing some positive news
“We are getting positive data from Honda in terms of an increase in performance. And our chassis has also been further developed during the winter”
He also pointed out how their driver line-up is more complete now
“We now have a driver who will be close to Max, so we are no longer a one-man team, everything has been done to eliminate the weaknesses”
He then looked at the contract situation surrounding Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes
“Either Hamilton takes a sabbatical, or he somehow finds a deal with Mercedes anyway. There are no interesting seats available at other teams”
He signed off by being hopeful that this situation works in their favor
“The whole situation is obviously causing unrest at the Mercedes team. Let's hope that we at Red Bull benefit from that”

Fast Feed
Red Bull’s Sergio Perez has revealed that “of all the teams in Formula 1”, he “always thought” he “wouldn't stand a chance at Red Bull”
He added that it’s “hard to believe and” he doesn't “know if it's because” he “thought Red Bull was never a possibility or just the feeling of driving for such a big team”
AlphaTauri team principal Franz Tost feels that they “are in an optimal scenario for next season with the perfect lineup”
He further explained that they “have an experienced driver and a young driver who can learn from him, especially when it comes to the technology and the setup of the car”
He also feels that “Mercedes is the clear favorite. They still have a clear lead, especially on the engine side”
However, Tost expects that their “engine partner Honda will still come up with something, which will show how well they have done”
Haas team principal Guenther Steiner has confirmed that “early in the summer, Gene Haas and” he had “a long talk about what was the best direction for the team and how” they “should move forward”
Steiner, therefore, “went to him with this idea” of hiring two rookie drivers for 2021
He added that “it's certainly not a short-term decision either” and that he is “against giving one-year contracts, because you only really know each other well after a year”
He further suggested that “2021 will therefore be a learning year, in order to achieve results in 2022”
Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel thinks that “everyone probably likes it when they are in an environment where they stand up for each other and work for each other”
He added that he has “seen a lot of new faces so far at Aston Martin, but” he’s “confident that it will work out”
He also thinks that he is “at a better point, with more experience and a clearer view of” his “own future”
Which is “why you can't really compare” his time at Red Bull with that of his time at Aston Martin now even though “on paper there are definitely things that are similar”
Retired F1 driver Romain Grosjean has confirmed that “it's going well. It still hurts, but” he already has “no splint on” his “thumb and no bandages on” his “hands”
He also revealed that he “didn't have any nightmares or things like that”. They “did work on it with” his “psychologist. But” he “didn't have any mental problems from it”, he’s “very happy about that”

Did Haas make the right call in signing two rookie drivers for 2021?

Is Chris & Helmut supposed to pretend Pierre or Alex performed anywhere near Max when they didn't? lol Who cares about their feelings? The stopwatch is all that matters. This is the big leagues. If you can't even get close to your teammate...It's going to be noticed. They WERE and have been a one man team since Danny left.

What you need to win the constructors championship is points. And for that you can’t afford to throw them away. So the first priority is to keep both cars on the track. And pick up the win when Mercedes are having a bad day. Both drivers need to know that. And not go flat out and take to many risks. It’s the only way to win.

Haas is gonna be so much fun next season. Two rookie drivers that are gonna torpedo the rest if the field. Just what we needed in this sport. One and the same man leading the race every race, and loads of crashes in the back of the field so every race can get restarted several times again. Ffs.

It is so good to hear Romain's hands are healing. However, no one ever mentioned how difficult it is to be unable to do basic things like dress yourself etc. How or who cleans you when you go to the toilet or shower when you cannot use your hands? This bring nightmare images but it brings home the truth that is ignored.

Oke hear me out, I would make it big if it came true but just from funs. Albon is loanable right if we may believe Marko/Horner? Lewis hasn't signed yet for next year. What if he doens't sign and they loan Albon would that be crazy?! Then we can see a proper fight for the championship Max(Better driver, solid car) v Bottas(solid driver, great car). Could be fun :P

I could never understand how RB a title winning team could justify running a apex driver like Max and a midfielder like Albon and then expect good results and act like nothing is wrong and like that’s not a stupid way to go about winning a title. I really hope Checo can fight up front with Max and put some pressure on the Mercedes guys. We complain about the Mercedes dominance like we are blaming them for having a good car and a driver line up that gives them championship titles. All while our preferred teams that we like to cheer on doesn’t even try to get a proper pairing to begin with. If Checo can keep up with Max, Mercedes will have to think twice about strategy because they can’t just cover off Max with one car. This could be the year Max secures a title, or Checo, which would be hilarious tooo. Now, not “hilarious” because I don’t think he could’ve done it but given his situation last year and then to be WDC this year , this would be one for the books.

Bottas can't manage his tires nearly as well as Max and Checo, and relied on Albon being out of the race to position well. Now with Max and Checo, working together, Max is going to run an undercut and the tire whisperer is going to overcut, giving the tire advantage to Max to go after Hamilton while Checo picks off Bottas. 2021 predictions: 1) Red Bull win the WCC due to a weak Bottas 2) Bottas gets wrecked by Checo 3) Bottas is out in 2022, George Russell takes his seat. 4) Close battle between Hamilton and Max, with Hamilton just narrowly beating Max for the WDC while Merc loses the WCC.

@Seles Veldkamp well, it’s not a dream, they got 319 points with 4 retirements from Max and 2 from Albon, so that’s 6, Max would easily would have finished second if not for those 4 RETs as he was just 9 shy of Slowttas. The interesting part is how Max added 67% of those point with more retirements and just 33%from Albon and not precisely big numbers, if Checo at least matches the pace he had last year, Mercedes is gonna have a hard time in wining constructor’s, but guess I’ll return here and swallow my words if that doesn’t happen 😂
