With Qualifying for the opening round of the 2017 F1 World Championship just hours away Red Bull Racing’s Chef Aerodynamics Engineer Dan Fallows sat down with Mobil One’s The Grid to explain the new technical regulations for the season ahead and the intentions behind them.
Flying in the face of many commentators and his own team principle Fallows is speaks highly of the returning shark fin aerodynamic element for 2017. Many detractors including senior leadership within Formula One Management sought to remove the fin ahead of the season opener.
Ahead of the 2017 F1 season former team owner turned pundit Eddie Jordan has suggested he would his response to Lewis Hamilton’s decision to back up Nico Rosberg in the final race of the 2016 season in a bid to secure his 4th World Championship would not have been as forgiving as that of Toto Wolff and the Daimler management board.
Never one to shy away from a headline, in this 2017 preview for Mobil One’s The Grid, Jordan comments on the departure of his good friend Bernie and the new start of a new era with Liberty Media.
Despite questioning Lewis’ approach to 2016, suggesting his lost focus, Jordan predicts he will be the favourite going into 2017. On Bottas, Jordan suggests 3-4 wins could be possible but questions his ability to push Lewis through the season.
