Red Bull’s adviser believes that the German team could be at the very top.
Last season, Mercedes had a lot of problems with their car, which is why the team managed to achieve only one victory. Nevertheless, the form of W13 improved from race to race, but in the end they failed to match the leading Red Bull, but in the new season, an opportunity is created for a new start. This is why Helmut Marko believes that Mercedes could be a significant threat in 2023.
“Ferrari is strong, but Mercedes can be stronger in Celena. Especially when they have a driver like Lewis Hamilton.” the Austrian told Sport Bild. “He is still a top driver. And Ferrari has a good driver like Charles Leclerc but he still makes mistakes. Mercedes had to find their way this year. They are still not at the top level, but they have at most more time in the wind tunnel to develop the car. I’m not too worried. We are on the right track for 2023 and we also have Max who is the best driver on the grid.”
