Mercedes F1 leaders “The next generation F1 machine has created more predictable racing”[]

Mercedes F1 Team Ground Engineering Director Andrew Shovlin said the new generation of F1 cars for 2022 has created more predictable racing.

This year’s Formula 1 cars have been built to a set of new technical regulations aimed at allowing tighter track racing and better competition.

However, Red Bull Racing are on course to win both the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships, holding a sizable lead in both places.

Red Bull Racing have won 12 of their 16 Grands Prix so far this year, with Ferrari winning the other four.

The Mercedes F1 team, which swept away the era of the hybrid turbo started in 2014, has not yet climbed to the top step of the podium in 2022.

Andrew Shovlin agrees chasing rivals around the corners is easier than before, but says the new rules have so far failed to create closer competition.

“It just got a little easier to follow,” Andrew Shovlin said.

“There are circuits, like Budapest, where historically there has been little overtaking, and the races there are a bit more interesting.”

“It also has the effect of resetting the competitive order when new rules are introduced and completely new rules like this set.”

“It’s not a close race at the moment. It looks like Red Bull are the clear favourites.”

“So the race is probably a bit more predictable than it was at the end of last year.”

“But it’s a small step in the right direction and a really big change to get there. And maybe the big thing that we wanted, which I don’t think we’ve seen yet, is that the peloton be equal. Thing”

“As you know, the distribution of teams between the teams is still broadly similar.”
