A Red Bull adviser said that they have no reason to worry at the moment.
According to Helmut Marko the main focus of the team on the first test in Barcelona was the relationship between the new weight of the car and the speed. On this occasion, he said that cars are heavier, but also faster. Like everyone, Marko is excited about the new rule change, but according to him, one thing was quite clear.
“Mercedes has a completely different concept than us.” said the Austrian for OE24.
He added that his team has not yet opened all the tickets.
“We are still far from the true weight of the car, because new parts are waiting for us. We are not half a second behind Mercedes. We did the first test on hard tires, while Mercedes drove on two components. “
