Red Bull applied pressure for party mode ban says Marko

Dr Helmut Marko has admitted Red Bull applied “necessary pressure” to help get what he describes as Mercedes’ “extreme” party mode engine settings banned. Although the ban will apply to every engine manufacturer from this weekend at Monza, Marko admitted that Red Bull’s focus was F1’s dominant team. “But the qualifying mode at Mercedes was so extreme that it distorted the competition. It was very important to us that it was banned and we put the necessary pressure on for that.”. Marko said Mercedes having to deal with the consequences of the ban is similar to what Red Bull went through during its own ultra-dominant period.
