Red Bull sees "absurd" the change of rules for porpoising

On the Thursday before the 2022 Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix, the FIA issued a statement announcing the first measures that teams should take on a mandatory basis to try to solve the porpoising problems that have so affected these new generation cars. .

Some have been very concerned about this rebound effect that has returned to the highest category of motorsport after several decades, especially due to the physical problems that have appeared in several drivers, such as Daniel Ricciardo, who described the jumps as if he were defending the MVP of the NBA finals, Stephen Curry, or Lewis Hamilton, about whom there were doubts about his participation in Montreal.

However, others such as Max Verstappen have criticized this change of rules in the middle of the season, calling what the international federation has done “shameful”. In his team they have the same mentality, and through the Red Bull advisor, the Austrians think that the modifications are “absurd”.

“This is something absurd! Just because a team can’t cope with changes, let’s not change the rules,” Helmut Marko told Kleine Zeitung . “You just have to put the car higher, and that’s it.”

One of the heads of the Milton Keynes garage was clear, and he was almost certainly referring to Mercedes due to the repeated complaints of his driver partner, George Russell and Lewis Hamilton, in addition to those of his boss, Toto Wolff .

However, it is expected that those groups that have not suffered so much porpoising will continue without problems, since they will not have to make as many adjustments as those that do suffer from the rebound effect to comply with the metrics that the FIA will implement to know the G forces of the contact with the asphalt.

For this reason, Red Bull should not suffer much from the modifications, while Mercedes could be affected, since in previous grand prix they adjusted their W13 to go closer to the ground and not have as much porpoising. As the governing body forces cars to go up, the Silver Arrows will need to increase height, and that translates into valuable lap time that no one wants to lose.

Be that as it may, all the teams will have to stay within the limits imposed by the international federation, and if this is not the case, they will be at risk of being excluded from the session in which they do not comply with the regulations.
