Red Bull Racing
The four consecutive Red Bull Racing cars this year can be described as ill-fated. The engine and chassis adjustments are quite different from those of Mercedes and Ferrari. They went to Australia to participate in the opener without being fully prepared. It is true. Let the fans fear.
The FIA stated that the fuel flow rate of the Ricardo car exceeded the 100kg/h requirement set for this year for a long time, and when it notified the Red Bull team to reduce the fuel flow rate of the car, Red Bull ignored this requirement. After discussion, it was finally decided to cancel Ricardo’s race results, and Red Bull will appeal. They reported that the FIA sensor was not accurate (the fuel flow rate sensor equipment supplier stated on their company website that 52% of the product’s test errors would be inaccurate. 0.1%, 92% product test error is 0.25%.). As Ricardo's runner-up results were cancelled, the drivers after him have all risen by one position, which will not be described separately below.
The McLaren team performed very eye-catching in the first race, and currently ranks first in the team standings. The two drivers were second and third respectively, re-entering the first camp.
Magnussen personally stated that being on the podium is like winning the championship. He is the son of former F1 driver Jane Magnussen. Born in 1992, he surpassed his father's best F1 result in his F1 debut (his father's best result was the second in the race). Six).
The Ferrari team's performance in Australia was mediocre, and the two former world champions Alonso and Raikkonen did not make the podium. The team’s strategy is to allow both drivers to finish the race smoothly. Judging from the results, they did it. Ferrari aims to win the championship this year. Judging from the current performance of the car, they still have a lot to do, and it will take a short time to improve the performance of the car.
The veteran F1 private team Williams is very optimistic this year. The performance of the car is good. The body painting and the driver's racing suit are considered to be the best-looking of all the teams this year. Cooperation”. It is also worth mentioning that Senna's head is printed on the left side of the front of their new car body.
Bottas launched a powerful offensive at the beginning of the race, and soon caught up with Alonso. Later, due to his own mistake, the right rear wheel of the car rubbed the tire wall and caused a puncture. The result plummeted from sixth. To the sixteenth place, after he came out of the pit lane, he regained his position step by step. His performance was praised by the team’s female manager, who believed that he had presented an incredible game for everyone, but he personally blamed himself very much and said that there would never be any mistakes in this game in the future.
After the race, the officer of the station conducted an investigation and concluded that the brake system of Kobayashi Kamui's car had a malfunction, which caused only the front brakes to work at that time, so this accident occurred, so no punishment will be imposed. Massa switched to Williams as the No. 1 driver after coming out of Ferrari. He ranked first in the overall performance of the drivers during the pre-season test in Bahrain. The total signs before the race indicated that he would make a difference.
