Australian Grand Prix-2017, which celebrated the victory of the Ferrari pilot Sebastian Vettel, was not so rich on overtaking.
Initially, experts were skeptical sentiments regarding the fact that the new generation vehicles will be difficult to overtake.
However, the head of the Red Bull Racing Christian Horner asked not to do hasty conclusions.
“Let’s keep the opinions to yourself until past two or three Grands Prix,’ said Horner. In Melbourne traditionally never a large number of overtaking.
Let’s wait for the races in China and Bahrain, because these tracks are much easier to overtake”.
Three-time world champion Lewis Hamilton said, “unfortunately, to get close to the car ahead, more complicated than ever. Sorry about that, because we can’t lead the battle on the track. Perhaps in the future the situation will change”.
His teammate at Mercedes, Valtteri Bottas added: “we Now feel the effect of the pursuit of the car that is two seconds ahead. Yes, with wider vehicles coverage area of the slipstream, but in the turns to follow another car very difficult. It may be a problem.”
