Race Director FIA’s Charlie whiting believes that in Formula 1 there are no problems with overtaking.
With the transition to new generation in 2017, the number of leads compared to last season has reduced by half – from $ 866 to 435. But, according to Whiting, the matter in too great advantage to the top teams.

“I don’t think that was less of a struggle because of the features of the new machines. Last season we saw a lot of interesting battles, despite the complaints of drivers about the difficulties of overtaking. There were many tight matches, and that’s a fact, said whiting in an interview with the New York Times. – The biggest problem – the advantage of the top three teams. Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull Racing far ahead of everyone else.
Ideally, the struggle at all levels in the peloton should be in the middle group. I don’t think is all that bad. Just some teams perform much better than others. However, there is nothing new here”.
