“We had the potential to finish third. I think McLaren was not as unlucky as we were. We should have finished third. So it makes sense for us to finish third, although it would be great if we could fight for Red Bull and Mercedes,” Szafnauer said at the ‘RT’L.
The second car ‘cloned’ of the Mercedes champion, where they will be able to count on the efficient suspensions of the W11 in their new car, the AM01, and the arrival of Sebastian Vettel, are the reasons that make them predict a leap of reluctance. “As always, Seb is very motivated. He is very curious, he asks a lot. Compare the work here with what he has learned in the past. We work differently here and treat the drivers differently from their old teams. We are leaving. to make sure that he enjoys racing again. That was exactly what he wanted. Our team is very good at that.
