As it is known, for the Formula 1 season 2021 changed the rules for the floorboardto reduce the aerodynamic thrust of race cars to save tires.
Back then, Bahrain seemed to have free space for its back [rake] race cars may have been more sensitive to change – some also attribute this to a weaker shape than the expected Mercedes and Aston Martin.
Although several rival team bosses say neither of these teams is suffering from rake adjustments, Otmar Szafnauer, who leads Aston Martin, has a strong opinion on the issue in Imola on Friday strongly lobbying the International Automobile Federation (FIA) to change aerodynamic rules.
Christian Bull, the head of Christian Bull, on the other hand, betrayed surprises Safnauer’s noise – especially after one race.
“So far, there has been one‘ sampling ’, and Mercedes has won this race – a team that traditionally makes cars with low rake settings,” the Sky Sports F1 television expert said.
“They were on an absolute level with us – if they were not better than us – in terms of tire management in Bahrain. They looked really impressive and we’ve only been on one track so far. “
“But even if we ignore all that, there is a procedure for introducing rules, which were even voted unanimously. Aston Martin or Racing Point were supposed to vote before the rule passed through the F1 board and the World Motorsport Council. But they all voted unanimously. ”
“When the first wings changed a few years ago, it affected us very sensitively. We voted against, but we were forced to accept it. ”
“It seems a bit naive to think that the rules will suddenly change after one race – so we followed the procedure completely. I don’t really understand. ”
Horner says the team needs to slow down for some reason after the rule changes, part of the game.
“Be it a blown diffuser, a double diffuser, flexible wings, inelastic wings, an F-channel, rules for the front wing … This is part of Formula 1.”
“Rules are evolving and changing, these slaps, like F1, should be avoided. The rules will change significantly next year, but the teams are aware of that. It’s been a part of this sport for many, many years. ”
