In any case, hopefully they've set their marks high enough for 2024, some teams set their marks way too low as recently as the start of this season. They need to be basically 1s a lap faster in race trim than they are now, at the end of the season, if they want to fight with RB20. And who knows how much more will be needed to beat it... Very steep mountain to climb, for any team.
And of course, the car is just one part of it. The strategy blunders of last year did not stop and if they keep doing that they can have the most dominant car ever and still lose the Championship. Vasseur addressed a few areas where the team was weak during 2023 and some improvements were clear. It remains to be seen if they understand how big of an issue strategy was, as well as some aspects of on-track operations.
And they call it a stall. A STALL!
