It would make sense as they have the best car out of the box, well if you discount Ferrari who seem to do everything possible to shoot themselves in both feet, so as the saying goes, make hay while the sun shines.adrianjordan wrote: ↑Tue Jun 21, 2022 9:17 pmI think questions are already being asked about how RBR are managing their development rate. I personally feel they have gone for a strategy of developing this year's car a lot early in the season and building a championship lead - working so far - and then slow development in the latter half to focus on next year. Obviously any developments that would work on this year's car would get brought forward if they need them.
25 points in the bank now is, well, errm, points in the bank. It is also probable that as Mercedes improve so will the others so it will be harder to get points all the way down.
If they have enough of a lead before Merc solve their problems and Ferrari get 'organised' they can settle for podiums for the rest of the year or take a risk on strategies which they would not it if was toe to toe.
