Verstappen: Let’s not change the regulations if we want the other teams to catch up to Red Bull

Max Verstappen believes that if the existing regulations remain the same for a long time, the other teams will have a better chance of reaching the level of Red Bull, who have dominated last year and this year, after the new regulations are implemented.

As the two-time world champion said:

We’ve always seen this in Formula 1, it’s nothing new. There have always been dominant groups. I think the longer you leave the regulations the same, the closer the teams will get. So maybe that’s something we should look into.

Just keep the regulations the same for longer. Because if you keep tweaking things, some team will always come up with something a little bit better than the others, and then it takes a while for the other teams to close the gap. That is what I believe.

George Russell agrees with Verstappen’s view:

I agree with what Max said, there have always been dominant teams in Formula 1. And I don’t know how we can get to a point where many drivers and teams are fighting for the championship, because I think that would be best for the sport, the better for all of us. The fans would love it, but obviously, you can’t always get what you dream of.

According to Russell, the system which reduces the time for aerodynamic tests for teams, depending on their position in last year’s championship, giving more time to the teams that finished lower, is not having the expected results.

It’s only been a few years of using this system but nothing has changed dramatically. Maybe the only team you can say has made a significant improvement is Aston Martin, but I think that’s probably because some engineers have gone to the team and helped make the right decisions.

Even if we give the bottom team four times as much wind tunnel time as the top team, the top team will likely still be ahead.
