Adrian Newey says that despite the major change in the regulations, Red Bull will have to continue developing its 2021 car for next year because it has a chance of winning both the drivers ‘and constructors’ championships.
Max Verstappen is eight points behind Lewis Hamilton in the drivers ‘standings, while Mercedes Red Bull leads the constructors’ championship with 12 points, after the latter only scored two points in the last two races. Newey believes 2022 regulations will be the biggest change in 40 years, but the chief technical officer said Red Bull couldn’t miss this year’s opportunity.
« I would say this is the biggest single regulatory change we’ve made have had since the ground-effect / venturi cars were banned in late 1982, « Newey said. “This is really a revolution. The only thing that has really remained the same is the power supply. Everything else is different.
“The balancing act is that we have to develop this year’s car further because we have a chance at the title at the moment. At the same time, however, we cannot just concentrate on this year and ignore the coming. We are doing our best to juggle these two balls and at the same time overcome the cost cap, which, as is well known, has led to the fact that we unfortunately had to downsize the team in certain areas. «
While Newey’s main focus is on the development of the car, he has also worked with numerous world championship drivers and said that Verstappen has shown all the qualities necessary to recover from recent setbacks in the title race.
« He has the same steely courage as any world champion, the stuff that they need to dig in and carry on despite adversity, « he said. “He can leave the past behind and look forward to the next race. His driving skills are obviously excellent and he has matured into a great racing driver.
“He really didn’t make any mistakes this year. The races he didn’t get good results in – Baku, Silverstone and Hungary – weren’t to blame, but he kept his head and recovered from all of these. I don’t think the pressures of the situation will affect him. ”
