Christian Horner was shocked by a statement in which he says he would not be surprised if Merceds finished two laps ahead of their rivals.
Meanwhile, Formula 1 analysts argue that Mercedes can be one to two seconds per lap faster than the competition.
“Given what we saw in the tests in Bahrain, I wouldn’t be surprised if Mercedes finished two laps ahead of the competition. They invested more and more in the car. ” Horner also admits that they may have invested too much in the exterior of the car.
“We aggressively pushed the boundaries of the car’s exterior forward, as Adrian Newey has always done. He’s probably the most competitive person I’ve ever met. But we cannot control all aspects of the vehicle. This time we bet on the aerodynamics of the car. But I'm sure we'll be on top with Renault soon. "
