Mercedes has dominated Formula 1 since 2014 and it seems that it will never end. Many fans hope that the many new regulations that will be introduced in 2022 will change that. Former Formula 1 driver Ralf Schumacher does not think that is impossible, but also thinks that the departure of important people could ensure that the dominance of the German-English team ends.
“The loss of the key figures will certainly weaken Mercedes,” Schumacher refers to the departure of Andy Cowell in his column. Sky Germany. “This could be the chance for the competition to get to the top and break through the incredibly long success story. But Mercedes is still the reference point in all areas. And next Sunday there is a good chance that they have something to celebrate again” Schumacher said, referring to the constructors’ championship that Mercedes can win in Imola.
If Mercedes takes the title with the teams for the seventh year in a row, it is largely due to Lewis Hamilton. “Lewis is the greatest driver of his time,” said Schumacher. “That is my regular answer when asked who is better: Hamilton or my brother Michael Schumacher. There are always drivers who leave their mark on their time. Think of Juan Manuel Fangio, Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna and these two drivers. And at some point there will be another driver who will do that. “
That role may be reserved for Max Verstappen or Charles Leclerc, Schumacher suggests. “I believe they are on the same level as Lewis. They will determine the future of Formula 1. The question is, when?”
Schumacher expects Mercedes to be the team to beat next year. “I don’t expect a change of guard for next year. Mercedes is too strong for that. They are not showing their true potential now, because they don’t have to”, Schumacher thinks. “But with the new regulations from 2022 that could change, I am convinced. But then there must be a team that has the right package.”
Albon’s chair legs falter and Verstappen has already expressed his preference for Nico Hulkenberg. How long will Red Bull allow Albon to struggle? That and more will be discussed by racing driver Tom Coronel, F1 journalist Ruud Dimmers and host Thomas van Groningen in the latest RN365 podcast, which can be heard below.
