FOLLOWING THE NEW TECHNICAL REGULATIONS, THE CARS ARE NOT JUST SAFE BUT ALSO LARGE. RED BULL ADVISOR HELMUT MARKO EARLIER SAID THAT THE ONLY PROBLEM THE MILTON-KEYNES’ BASED TEAM HAS IS WEIGHT, BUT ALL TEAMS HAVE THAT.
The new technical regulations in 2022 have caused an increase in the weight of F1 cars.
Red Bull is one of the many teams whose cars are heavier than the 795kg minimum weight set by the FIA.
McLaren and Alpha Romeo are the only 2 teams who have cars that weigh exactly 795kg. This gives them a competitive advantage.
Red Bull wants the FIA to increase the minimum weight requirement. Weight plays a big role, and Alpha Romeo and McLaren do not want to lose their advantage.
