Racing Point frustrated: ‘Who yells the loudest, copies the most’

In the first half of the 2020 season, Racing point came under heavy fire. The Silverstone team came up with a car that was in every way a copy of the 2019 Mercedes car, so many teams protested the pink car’s design. Andy Green, responsible for the car’s design, further explains Racing Point’s vision.

According to Green, it is no longer a secret that Racing Point was inspired by the Mercedes car, although they were careful. “ We agreed from the beginning of the design phase that we would use the main main concepts of the Mercedes car as a starting point, ” said the Briton in conversation with Car, motor and sport. ‘We got stuck in our previous concept and had to do something.’

‘But after that basis, all further development was devised ourselves. We used our own data from the wind tunnel. All updates that followed after the start of the season are a result of what we wanted to change. Mercedes has played no role in that. That’s why our aero updates are nothing like Mercedes. We think the geometry of our updates are better, ”said Green.

There are still tensions between Racing Point and the other teams. Despite the fact that the case has been settled with the FIA ​​and the competitors have withdrawn their appeal, there is dissatisfaction. Green does not understand this, he shows. ‘All we have done is give a 2019 car a lift to a 2020 version. Everyone has done that. But our competitors wanted us to keep driving with 2019 parts while they were allowed to switch quietly to 2020 parts? I think that’s unfair. ‘

“In addition, other teams pretend to be holy beans,” the Racing Point man continues. ‘When other teams say they came up with all their designs themselves, they are lying. McLaren has recently been given a new nose and front wing and they have clearly looked at Mercedes. How come no one has said anything about it? When we do such a thing all hell breaks loose. The entire front and rear of McLaren is the same as that of Mercedes. Teams that shout the loudest copy the most. ‘

All in all, Green hopes that the FIA ​​punishment of a hefty fine and a points reduction will be enough to bring peace between the parties. Racing Point has also given its yes to new rules, which will prescribe strict rules from 2021 with regard to copying other people’s parts. ‘The fact that we were prepared to do this must make the teams think differently. I see it as a peace treaty. Let’s hope it stays that way for a while. ‘ (Photo: Racing Point F1 Team)
