F1: MercedesAMG’s Toto Wolff admits Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) ‘Really Fast’
After the first of just two pre-season tests, the conventional wisdom is that Mercedes lead, Ferrari are close behind, and Red Bull are the third force.
However, Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff he said: “Since we have these new rules, the teams are just trying to get a lot of mileage to know their cars.
“At Red Bull, we probably have not seen the car that will be in Melbourne. But Ferrari is really fast.”
McLaren’s boss Eric Boullier admits that a pecking order is not possible to assess after 4 days of running, but he said Ferrari’s pace has been “surprising”.
“We may know a little more next week, but we really have to wait until Australia.”
Boullier may be surprised with what he saw in Barcelona, but Red Bull’s Max Verstappen seemed calm.
“Actually, nothing surprised me here,” he is quoted as saying. “And I think everything is still within reach for us.”
The Y 2017 Formula One season commences with the Australian Grand Prix on 26 March, in Melbourne.
