McLarren boss directed a bold statement to the top teams

McLaren had a strong 2021 F1 season. The team was a frontrunner for the best of the rest spot, alongside Ferrari, for a good part of this season. However, they had to cede ground to the Maranello team after a dip in Lando Norris’ form in the second half.

However, the 2021 controversy is still taking a toll on the relationship between the teams and the FIA. Mclaren CEO Zak Brown made a bold statement about the top teams, requesting them to not influence the racing committee. This season saw constant back and forth between the top teams and race director, which escalated to different heights towards to end.

“There were enough people disgruntled throughout the year that we need to look at the rules. And keep in mind that it’s the teams who make most of these rules. So as you’ve heard me bang on about, I’d continue to like to see less influence from the teams, because we’re the ones who developed half of these rules,” said Brown as reported by MSN.

“Obviously there were winners and losers in it. It’s tough being a referee in any sport because half of the fans are going to agree with your call, half of them aren’t,” added the Woking team boss.

However, now the teams are on their toes finding the right car for the next season. Mclaren even shared a glimpse of their new F1 car recently. With new rules in place, there can be a shift in the power dynamics on the grid. What are your predictions for 2022?
