The words of Davide Coulthard

David Coulthard opened up about 2023 in the pages of the Mirror: “Of course, I don’t have a crystal ball. But I have the impression that if Ferrari can solve its reliability and management problems, then it will be okay. Mercedes clearly has a fast car and it looks like it will be of the challenge.”

Red Bull may not dominate, then, at least according to Ingòese: “Back in the hybrid era, Mercedes had a huge pace advantage. They had a great power unit, which at the beginning allowed them to get ahead just because of power, without having to be so efficient. And slowly they realized the Holy Grail: not only a powerful engine, but also a great car. When you then combine those two things with a brilliant driver, then you create an era of dominance.”

“I like to think that next year there can be a three-way fight for the title. As strong as Max is, at the end of 2022 the groundwork is laid for 2023. In my opinion, the teams will be much closer than what we saw at the beginning of the season,” he concluded.
