Red Bull fears Aston Martin: "Our rival is not Ferrari, it is Alonso"

Fernando Alonso and Aston Martin They have a lot to say in the Formula 1 Bahrain GP. The two-time world champion will start from fifth position after an exhibition on qualifying day and, as Mercedes did a few days ago, at Red Bull they see the Spanish driver in the podium in the first race of the 2023 season.

Joan VilladelpratFormula 1 guru, already warned in an interview granted in OK DAILY that a podium for Fernando Alonso was not surprising and what at the beginning of the week was little more than a utopia, may finally come true. Because Fernando Alonso was able to beat Mercedes in the qualifying session and the Ferraris of Leclerc and Carlos Sainz are the only two cars that stand in the way of the podium. And at Red Bull they know it.

«Our main rival for tomorrow is Fernando Alonso, as our analyzes of the long runs say. Ferrari has too much degradation on the tires. These words came from the mouth of Helmut Marko, a Red Bull adviser and a voice with plenty of authority to guess what might happen during the two-hour race at the Formula 1 Bahrain GP.

Taunt Aston Martin

Besides a carrot, Marko Helmut He also wanted to distribute a stick to Aston Martin. The British team signed Dan Fallows, former head of aerodynamics at Red Bull, last year 2022, and the adviser to the energy company wanted to relate the evolution of Aston Martin with this contract.

“If you compare the two cars, the Aston Martin it is the most similar to Red Bull. There are definitely reasons for that. It’s not just Fallows who switched to Aston Martin, but a few other employees as well. They obviously have a good memory,” he said about the good work of Aston Martin in this first part of the season. Red Bull is already afraid of the English team… and Fernando Alonso.
