  • It would be very naïve and frankly ridiculous to say that Mercedes isn’t the dominant car anymore after no major regulation changes, just look at the hybrid era. The Red Bull seem to have a stronger qualifying pace and better pitstops, whereas the Mercedes seem to have the upper hand when it comes to race pace and especially reliability. The field in general has just become a lot tighter this season, which will insure very exciting races!!

  • Not entirely fair there. When the new rules were announced it seemed very likely that Mercedes would have the edge. You can't cry UNFAIR because Red Bull managed to design around it. That's kinda the point of the game

  • Irrelevant question. Because some circuits Red Bulls are faster. Such as high altitude tracks such as Mexico City and interlagos Also in 2018 a red bull was going to win in Austin but his engine blew up. Monaco is also quick for red bull

    • Why unsubscribin from this channel bruv? They didn't have any say on the rules, all this vid was try a explain how red bull and merc have been "equalized". If ya wanna complain about Lewis Hamilton exceeding track limits and it being legal, complain to the FIA not this channel mate.

  • are you sure the title is using proper grammar? Shouldn't the title be "Why Red Bull IS suddenly faster than mercedes" or "Why IS red bull suddenly faster than mercedes". Saying "red bull ARE" sounds.... stupid.... i feel like it implies that each team member acts independently and not as a cohesive unit.

  • 0:45 really we're bringing this up again ? They where not legal you pillock If we're gonna use that argument the overtake was legal as well as he was already past and he had oversteer which is what the original point was for not following the track limits in turn 4. I swear it baffles me how fcking dumb hamilton fans are especially the journalists that are supposed to be impartial. Easiest unsub of my life.

  • I do believe that Perez is also a factor. He is now in his 11th season. The last driver Red Bull had with this much experience was Mark Webber. With the limited amount of testing driver feeback is really important. Having him and Verstappen who enters his 7th season must have helped them during testing.

  • Imagine if Ferrari or Renault paid for all Honda PU intellectual property instead of Redbull. Or they contracted the same design studio in Japan. Honda for 2022 PU used a Japanese turbine manufacturer. Who designs turbines for jets and power plant steam turbines.

  • the first race was pretty even between red bull and mercedes. the reason was that red bull had traction problems because their diff had an unusual problem. that means, they could not use the whole engine power on the exit of the corners. maybe even energy recovery was a bit compromised breaking into the corner. that kind of grip problem also resulted in more tire wear. at the end they could not conserve the tires that well. on the other side, mercedes could learn a good thing at testing and managed to stabilize their rear until the first race. they also positioned the filming day with extra 100km after testing which gave them an extra possibility to iron out their problems. next race, red bull will have their diff problems sorted out and can use more power in the corners and make use of better energy recovery and deployment. a great advantage as we saw in qualifying. i see a significant advantage on the side of red bull. but if they make mistakes, mercedes will be there and profit an that. we will see an exciting f1 year in 2021 with close battles.

  • I think there is one aspect that you didn't mention (apart from the floorchange and the engine). Red Bull had most of the years with a new car some trouble at the start of the season and been catching up during the season. With the cars this year not being entirely new, they could build on the developement of last year and continue with it this year. And as them closing the gap during the season has shown over the last years, that is something they are good, if not better at than Mercedes.

  • To be honest, both the cars are quite same in terms of performance, red bull isn't better than mercedes overall. It just depends on the drivers now and that's why Lewis will win this time too

  • The track extensions were not legal. Why would they have told Mercedes to stop doing it otherwise? And Max his overtake was also illegal. But what bothers me is the inconsistency by FIA and the change in the middle of the race. It should be either the whole weekend legal or illegal.

    Norbert JanssenNorbert Janssen27 dagar sedan
  • Lewis running wide was legal. But that it was legal, was stupid by the race organizers. You cant have something be legal part of the time, and then decide its not. Its stupid. Its as if you say "Hitting the goalpoast is a scor, unless you would take the lead if it was a score"

  • A few remarks: 1) Max had a flawless quali run, Lewis lost a bit of time in final quali run (according to Dr Marco). Difference more like 0,2 seconds in quali. 2) Lando said that Max had overtaken Lewis before turn. A video from a different angle suggests Lando has a point. 3) Honda made a smaller engine so the whole engine package is made smaller therefore more airflow around the upperside. This gives a better overall balance and more predictable shift in center of gravity during braking and cornering. Drivers can more easily drive on the limits. 4) Construction rules changed on request of Pirelli. They wanted more safety margin, several times in 2020 tires had blown. That was the driver behind the cut out of the floor.

    • yes max passed before the turn, BUT, he carried too much speed and had to go off track. that is the same as passing before a chicane, but not being able to make the turn and cutting the chicane, in which case you would be told to give the place back

  • Jeez. This is food for thought. And last year I made all kinds of sounds about them delaying the regulations for 2022. I honestly don't know who is taking it this year but the season has that niether here nor there feel so it's really difficult to predict so early. I am a Hamilton supporter fo sure but I'm hesitant to say. I am looking forward to seeing how the drastic driver changes will play out.
