Hear Horner’s plan

Milton Keynes don’t want to stop anymore. After 5 straight wins by Verstappen, Horner and other Red Bull technicians paved the way for Red’s annihilation at the end of the season.

The Formula 1 Circus will restart the engines in Singapore, marking the 17th round of the 2022 championship. At the Asian street circuit, Ferrari would like to stop the Austrian team’s winning streak. In fact, Max Verstappen won 5 Grands Prix in a row for the first time in his career. A really cool number, if you think about the total count of 11 seasonal successes. In 2021, the Dutchman only needed 10 victories to become world champion, in a tight battle against Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton. In this old model, the No. 33, now No. 1 on the grid, only had to suffer on the first seasonal outings.

After Melbourne, in fact, the Red Bull Racing champion admitted it would be very difficult to restore the gap in the drivers’ standings. Thanks to Max’s sudden retirement, Leclerc had a 46-point lead. Several strategic errors, some technical failures and confusion, very quickly turned the situation upside down. Ferrari wasted a constant advantage, not only in terms of points, but also in terms of technique. From the first pre-season tests, the F1 – 75 was understood to be a car with an exceptional wing. Lightweight, superior performance in hybrid sections, thanks to its unique agility, and well propelled by the new Superfast engine. However, UEFA revealed problems during the season, causing Leclerc and Sainz to lose a lot of points. F1, hierarchies at Ferrari? John Elkann is counting on the foreman.

Monaco’s many pole positions were not enough to take on Red Bull Racing in the race. Max raced at Imola and in only 3 other conditions did he not finish 1st. Literally unbeatable on some tracks, while on others he was good at exploiting Red’s weaknesses. The truth is that the engineers at Milton Keynes never stopped developing the RB18 Which, at first, seemed ahead of the F1 – 75 only in terms of top speed front stroke. Slimming handling made the Austrian car better even in slow medium corners. The developments have opened the debate about the budget cap, but the truth is that from a political point of view, the team is also very strong. Men like Horner and Marco used to have much hotter fights, compared to the dialectical battles with Mattia Binotto.

Red Bull goal

At the end of the season, Max Verstappen has a real chance to beat Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel. The Germans, in Ferrari and RB, managed to win 13 GP. Max is already at 11 with 6 races at the end of the championship. In terms of points, there is no more competition than competitors. The Dutchman looks down on everyone, with 335 points, ahead of Charles Leclerc, who returned after Monza’s performance in second place at 219. Behind the Ferrari driver, in third, is Mexican Sergio Perez at 210. Good season but not fighting for the crown . Checo has won only one Grand Prix, in Monaco, again thanks to a wonderful gift from Ferrari.

Horner, after the victory at Monza, admitted that it wouldn’t be easy to win every race. The first stop in Singapore will be Red Bull Racing’s toughest challenge. If the red team is defeated there as well, there is a real chance of remaining undefeated for the rest of the season. Horner said, as reported by GPBlog: “It will be one of the toughest races.”. The characteristics of the track must exactly match the qualities of the Italian car. The same was also said in Monaco and at other circuits, and in the end he celebrated the royal appearance. Winning all six remaining races is not an obsession. However, Horner would like to do something historical.

Ferrari, another disarming statistic: a negative record in the history of the Red team. On the other hand, Red Bull’s plan is to close 2022 at the top to better prepare the business in light of the year of confirmation. Monaghan, Red Bull’s chief engineer, declared:I’m not sure we’ll necessarily take advantage of this for the next season of good performance now. We have to at least start on an equal footing with our opponents. But At least we have to master the changes in the rules regarding floor height and hardness. If we can do that, we will be in the lead again next year“.
