Mercedes vs Red Bull = Engine vs Aero

If we are treated to a Mercedes vs. Red Bull Racing contest in 2017, it could well be an ‘engine vs. aero’ battle given Mercedes’ superior power unit and Red Bull Racing’s aero prowess. But well, Bernie Ecclestone doesn’t believe that Mercedes will be challenged this season too. Sigh!

On this ‘engine vs. aero’ debate, we’re reminded of Enzo Ferrari’s famous quote ‘aerodynamics are for people who can’t build engines’ and this does seem true for Red Bull Racing – who have publicly declared that they’ll be fighting for wins only in the second half of 2017! Sigh! (yet again!)

In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we discuss the Renault-Magnussen-Haas love-hate relationship, possible retirement options for Jolyon Palmer, Mclaren’s sponsor-friendly statements and even though we narrowly missed the Valtteri Bottas to Mercedes announcement, we still got it right in this episode. While Mercedes made the most of the positive PR around their second cockpit, they do need lessons on how to maintain suspense! Tune in!
