Marko not impressed with new Mercedes

Dr Helmut Marko admits he isn’t too impressed with Mercedes’ radical ‘no sidepod’ upgrade for its 2022 car. “What Mercedes has brought looks revolutionary,” said the 78-year-old Austrian. “And I say – the main thing is that we’re the fastest again. But I also remember last year, when Mercedes was also behind in the tests.”. With those updates, Dutchman and new world champion Max Verstappen finished the test with the fastest time – but, like Marko, he questions just how much Mercedes is struggling. Carlos Sainz, at the wheel of the impressive 2022 Ferrari, agrees with Verstappen that he doesn’t believe “for a second” that Mercedes is struggling.
