Former F1 team boss Eddie Jordan believes reigning world champion Max Verstappen faked a driveshaft problem at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix because he was beaten by team-mate Sergio Perez. The Dutchman started the race from fifteenth place after a driveshaft failure in qualifying and then made his way to second place, where he followed the leader Perez, in the second car of the Red Bull team, about five seconds behind the finish line. The two-time world champion radioed the vibrations in the rear of the RB19 that he felt before the breakdown in qualifying, and Perez easily remained in the lead at a safe distance. In the last lap, Verstappen did manage to set the fastest lap of the race, which the Mexican had held until then, which suggested that he could drive faster, here
Otherwise, it seems very unlikely that there will be an agreement between the seven-time world champion and the Mercedes team, but if it were up to Eddie Jordan, the German manufacturer would have to step on the toes of a noble racer. An analyst on Channel 4 was asked by colleagues at F1-Insider.com about the situation between Hamilton and Mercedes. Jordan was known in his time as team boss as a solid businessman and has changed little in that regard. "If I were the boss of Daimler, I would show Hamilton the door. Will you race under our terms or can you go." Jordan says he is still well-informed in the Formula 1 world and, according to his sources, Hamilton not only wants a hefty salary, but also a more influential role in the Mercedes group. If Eddie Jordan were to head Daimler, Hamilton would s
Eddie Jordan revealed that after one of the most famous races of 1998 in Belgium, in which his Jordan team recorded its first and only double victory in history, he kicked out of his garage the then Ferrari ace, Michael Schumacher. Schumacher ended the race with a collision with David Coulthard in the back, but because there were a massive collision of thirteen race cars at the start of the race, Jordan's racers Damon Hill and Michael's brother Ralf Schumacher were the ones to take the lead. As team boss, Eddie Jordan issued an order that Ralf should not overtake a teammate and so Hill celebrated the victory in the race. Jordan admitted that Hill shouldn’t have won as Ralf was faster, but by overtaking he didn’t want to risk a unique chance to double win, so substitutions
Eddie Jordan announces that Mercedes will also show its strength this season and thus win this season as well. “Mercedes has an advantage that is unattainable. When changing tires, we could have another coffee and still win, ”said the former team owner and current Formula 1 commentator in his famous style. That Ferrari could beat Mercedes is just their dream and desire, Jordan described. "The question is how close Mercedes will leave them, so that their dominance will be as inconspicuous as possible," he continued. Racer Nico Hülkenberg has a similar opinion: "Their power will be visible in the first races," he is convinced. His teammate Jolyon Palmer also describes Lewis Hamilton and Nic Rosberg in superlatives, and says the Mercedes team are from another planet.
Eddie Jordan, a BBC television commentator, said Nico Rosberg had to replace the team if he wanted to become world champion. “As long as he’s in Hamilton’s Mercedes, Rosberg will never be a champion,” he said. "Nico can't beat Lewis because he doesn't have his confidence, nor is he fast enough. Lewis has two world titles under his belt, so he automatically drives better and faster." Rosberg's problems appear to have been noticed at Red Bull, as they have already sent him a hint that could be considered a betrothal: "Nico needs to get together or change the team," Red Bull adviser Helmut Marko said. "In the new environment, he will be able to start again and that will help him on a psychic level." Red Bull does not yet have a confirmed racing lineup for next season, and at the same time it is not yet clear which engines will resist
