Red Bull dominance could last years says Sainz

Carlos Sainz admits rival Formula 1 teams may not be able to end Red Bull’s dominance anytime soon.

With Red Bull’s dominance since the start of new “ground effect” regulations in 2022 and 2023, some predict that Max Verstappen could continue to collect titles at least until new regulations come into play in 2026.

The only driver to have achieved success beating Red Bull this season is Sainz, who says Ferrari have now identified what was wrong with the car 2023.

We know exactly what we are missing, a- he declared during a sponsored event in Madrid. “We were able to identify and understand it.

I think if there’s any team that can do it, it’s Ferrari. But time will tell.
However, the Spaniard admitted that Red Bull currently has a huge lead.

Without them we would be talking about one of the most balanced and fun years in F1, with Aston Martin, McLaren, Ferrari and Mercedes all on a very similar level, said 29-year-old Sainz .

But in reality, we have someone half a second ahead.
And that’s why many of the top teams mentioned above have now virtually stopped developing their 2023 cars to focus entirely on 2024.

That’s what we did too, Sainz said. “The latest update has been done in Japan.
Next year’s car has been decided and we are currently improving it in the wind tunnel.

Also no doubt supported Because of the milestones in McLaren’s recent development, most of the top teams will emulate the Red Bull “concept” for 2024.
But Sainz warns:

“Red Bull is two years ahead. So first it was difficult to reach their level and that’s why they dominate so much now.
But the times Time will tell” We have no choice but to focus,” he said.

As for whether Red Bull’s dominance can last until the end of 2025, Sainz does not deny it.

Time will tell. I just don’t know,” he said. “I don’t know how to answer.

“The only thing I can do is be optimistic and think that a team like Ferrari is capable of doing it, especially if McLaren took such a step.” they I know what I need to do, what I need to improve and whether that will take us to Red Bull’s level or not. I hope so, Sainz added.
