Reliability woes are just ONE of many problems facing Max Verstappen and Red Bull this season, claims team advisor Helmut Marko… with the F1 giants ‘lagging’ behind pace-setters Ferrari in a car that is TOO HEAVY

Red Bull need to fix more than just their reliability if they are to turn the RB18 into a championship-winning car for Max Verstappen, believes team advisor Helmut Marko. ‘Firstly, the reliability problems, which we hardly had last year, but the lag behind Ferrari was also alarming today. Charles Leclerc, who has won two of the opening three races, has already established a points lead greater than Verstappen or rival Lewis Hamilton ever held in 2021. Ferrari can find a good balance with the car more easily.’. That will not ease the frustrations of Verstappen, as he fumed at the inability to compete with Ferrari on track in his first world title defence.
