Immediately before the start of the race in Australia, which was won by Sebastian Vettel, FIA President Jean Todt has told about his expectations from the beginning of season 2017 albert Park, expressing concerns about big breaks.
“I look forward to the start of the race, but a little nervous because they fear that the gaps between the teams are very large. Let’s hope it’s still wrong and we will see dense struggle, – quotes the Todt AUTOSPORT. – Ferrari have made good progress after the change of the rules is impressive.
Mercedes is still very strong. There was much speculation about the second driver, but I have never had doubts in the abilities of Valtteri Bottas.
Red Bull Racing seems a little behind, and to be honest I’m a little concerned that the first and seventh-the eighth place is shared by about two seconds. It’s too big a gap.
We dream that the top ten was shared by 0.7-0.8 seconds, but while it is not. The reasons for this are many, but it is clear that in the first place this is due to the difference in the budget of the team.”
Also, Todt added that it is now overtaking indeed be less, but this is the price for faster and more complex in flying machines.
“The new car looks great, commented the President of the FIA. – Everyone wanted that cars have become more difficult to manage. Were they more difficult? I think, Yes. Faster in the turns? Yes, faster”.
