Horner: “Mercedes has never had pressure”


The dispute for the title is expected to be more intense than ever thanks to the progressive rise of Red Bull, but the entry into force of the new rules leaves many uncertainties to be resolved before the cars begin to compete at the end of march in Australia.

when that time comes, Christian Horner reflects on the experience that you have Red Bull at the time of dispute a world title against another team, as happened in 2010 and 2012 with Fernando Alonso and Ferrari as opponents. “We’ve fought fights, adjusted for the championship in 2010 and 2012, which came up at the end. I think that gives you experience to manage these situations,”, said Horner in a statement picked up by Crash.net.

Horner thinks Mercedes do not have this experience and that can play against you in 2017. “Mercedes has been in a fortunate position in that have not really been challenged since 2014. Have been classified in the first line of the grill with a very fast car, you can choose any strategy since any variable will work. When the grill is a mix, there is more pressure”, ” said the head of sports from Red Bull, showing hopeful about the possibility of that is Red Bull the team that threatens the supremacy of Mercedes in the coming year. “To Mercedes will be a new experience when they are under pressure, which is inevitable to happen sooner or later. I just hope that it is Red Bull the team to be able to put them under pressure”.
