Red Bull finds antidote to Mercedes speed

Max Verstappen should be able to lift the 2021 world championship trophy just two more race wins, according to Red Bull official Dr Helmut Marko. “Mercedes is very fast, there is no doubt about it,” Marko told Sky Deutschland. It will be a tough race this weekend, but it is not as clearly on the Mercedes side as we previously thought.”. Marko reiterated that Red Bull’s major concern is with the recent straightline speed boost – estimated by him to be 15kph – enjoyed by Mercedes’ Hamilton. That should be the formula for the world title,” Marko said. And if Mercedes’ obvious worries about engine reliability result in a DNF for Hamilton, Verstappen really will be the standout favourite for the championship. “You are being fed a lot of bullsh*t,” the Mercedes boss blasted.
