Marko wants telemetry and radios banned in F1

Lewis Hamilton dominates Formula 1 because he has “a more powerful engine”. He is looking forward to the forthcoming ban on ‘party mode’ engine settings, which has been delayed for a week until Monza following a request not only by Mercedes, but ironically also from Red Bull’s partner Honda. He told Der Spiegel that although Hamilton is a gifted driver, “his enormous superiority results from a more powerful engine”. “We do not currently have a drivers’ championship,” Marko said. He suggests that banning telemetry would be a good way to start addressing the problem, while “radio traffic from the box to the driver” should also be stopped, according to Marko. Marko also criticised the FIA’s ruling on the ‘pink Mercedes’ case, likening the situation to the way the Ferrari engine legality saga was handled.
