MDP Live - Red Bull Racing's sporting director Jonathan Weathley doesn't want to underestimate the power of Ferrari. He knows the Prancing Horse is a big team that has the potential to rise in the upcoming 2022 season.
As is known, the 2022 F1 season will implement massive regulatory changes that make the competition map unpredictable. Red Bull Racing and Mercedes AMG are indeed the two teams that are still favored to be able to compete at the top. However, Jonathan Weathley as Red Bull's representative did not want to underestimate the power of Ferrari. The team from Italy could be a problem because they developed the car well.
"Ferrari, and of course their car, looked very good at the end of last year. They were definitely the third best team at the end of last season and they also have a very good line-up of drivers," Weathley said in an interview with local media.
"I wasn't sure at first whether the two drivers would work well together, but they seem to work very well together. Ferrari could be a big unknown factor next year (2022), and maybe even a big threat for us." again.
For the new season, Red Bull will focus on helping Verstappen in defending the title. They wanted to convince the public that Verstappen's success in winning the world title was not due to luck alone.
