The whole German interview with Ralf Bach.
Marko: “If the performance differences [RBR vs Merc] continue to be the same as in Istanbul, we will have a problem.
Of the six race tracks, only the courses in Mexico and Sao Paulo play a role in our cards because of their altitude.
The rest seems to be Mercedes-Land at the moment. "
As a first measure, the chassis from Max Verstappen will be put through its paces . “It wasn't ideal in Istanbul,” explains Marko.
“Max constantly complained about understeer, which we just couldn't get away.”
So it cannot be ruled out that the Dutchman will drive with a new chassis at the next race in Austin.
“We'll keep fighting . Positive is also how relaxed Max is dealing with the current situation.
He remains very calm and only points out the disadvantages that he has at the moment. "
They will now first check Max's car from head to toe, because they couldn't get rid of that understeer.
There is talk about a new chassis, but Marko does not go into that.
Fortunately, Newey is back to work after his bicycle accident four months ago.
RBR had a film/test day in Istanbul last Tuesday and
Max was in Milton Keynes all day yesterday. All good signs.
