Red Bull wins but says they are still above minimum weight

Red Bull could not have had a better weekend in Italy after the second Grand Chelem of Max Verstappen’s career which, together with the victory in the sprint race, adds 34 more points, while Ferrari has suffered the abandonment of Carlos Sainz and the unforced error of Charles Leclerc.

In addition, the Austrian team celebrated the double with Sergio Pérez on the podium, repeating the second position he achieved in Australia. Thus, the difference in the world championship of drivers and constructors with respect to those of Maranello has been reduced, and they are already on the prowl.

The day was round for those from Milton Keynes, and the team’s adviser, Helmut Marko , assured it: “This is very important for our morale, and we have also shown that we have a competitive car for this year.”

The group of energy drinks explained before Imola that they would introduce some updates, such as a drop in the weight of the RB18, which was well above the minimum limit and weighed them down.

When asked by about this improvement, the Austrian said: “The car has become lighter, but we still have to take more steps in that direction. We are still above the FIA minimum, but it is logical.”

“With this you don’t reach the right weight all at once,” said the Red Bull adviser, who also explained what gave the team victory at Ferrari’s home.

Compound management was key, despite the variable conditions throughout the weekend: “We had the tires in the right window and a good selection in the setup, so the balance was better than in Australia.”

“What went wrong for us in Melbourne went wrong for Ferrari this grand prix,” continued Marko. “Leclerc’s option was at that second stop, we were attentive and we saw that he couldn’t follow us, he was going further and further behind.”

“With Pérez we only reacted, he was always able to deliver when he needed to. We have to put pressure on Ferrari, and when it is done, something like this can happen, thank God,” said the Red Bull manager.

A factor that has weighed heavily on the four-time constructors’ world champion team has been reliability , as they left in Bahrain with both cars, and in Australia they missed a secured second position with Verstappen due to problems in the RB18.

On this, the Austrian said: “You never have 100% confidence, but we are working hard on it, and we hope it will not happen again.”

The current drivers’ champion, Max Verstappen, has placed second in the world championship, 27 points behind the leader, Charles Leclerc, while in the team table they are only 11 units behind those from Maranello, and there are still 19 great ones to be played awards.
