Niki Lauda: “Shark fin”, it was decided to leave for the sake of sponsors

Ники Лауда: "Акулий плавник" было решено оставить ради спонсоров

Non-Executive Director of Mercedes Niki Lauda said that the team considered the possibility of rejection of the “shark fin”, which in the end, it was decided to leave to place the sponsor decals.

The return of the controversial aerodynamic element, banned in 2009, has caused ambiguous reaction in the Formula 1. The head of the Red Bull Racing Christian Horner was hoping he would be able to get to the start of the season at albert Park, but, apparently, this will not happen.

“The rejection of the “shark fin” was one of the most discussed topics at the meeting of the Strategic Group, said Lauda in an interview with ORF. But some teams said, “We can place sponsor logos”. That is why the “fin” decided to leave”.
