Pilot Red Bull Racing Daniel Riccardo shared his thoughts about changes in the technical regulations of Formula 1 in 2017 and expressed the hope that the race will be spectacular, despite some pessimistic forecasts.
“I can’t imagine how it would be possible to completely change the car. Yes, the speed will now be higher, but does this mean that there will be more errors and incidents? I’m not sure, – quotes Riccardo Speed Week. – I hope at least the race will be no less spectacular than before. I think it is particularly difficult we will have hot stages”.
The head of the Red Bull Racing Christian Horner was one of the main opponents of such aerodynamic elements, such as shark fin and T-shaped wing. However, Daniel admits that the most important aspect is the speed of the machine.
The team refused to host the rooms of the pilots on the “shark fin”
“T-shaped wings is something new. Never before have I seen such a decision, – said Riccardo. – Looks very unusual, reminiscent of the radar antenna or on the truck. But over time these things get used.
Shark fin was in the days when Red Bull Racing was still made by Sebastian Vettel and mark Webber. But I don’t see any problems, because I believe that if a decision makes the car faster, it doesn’t matter how it looks.”
