Franz Tost: Copying the Ferrari front wing would be no solution for Mercedes – It would take 3 to 4 months
The Ferrari F1 team may have found a loophole from regulation changes heading to the 2019 Formula 1 season, which may be a cause for concern for its F1 rivals
The attention of the competition was aroused primarily by the innovative design of the Ferrari front wing since the concept differs significantly from the solutions used by Mercedes and Red Bull.
According to AMuS, Vettel‘s performance yesterday made other teams be a bit worried, especially Because Alfa Romeo Racing (who has a similar front wing concept like Ferrari) have performed well too.
The Toro Rosso Boss Franz Tost thinks, that copying Ferrari’s concept would be a waste of time.
That would take 3 to 4 months because the entire car would have to be rebuilt drastically. Mercedes drives a completely different concept. Who wants to convert from the Mercedes wing to a Ferrari wing, must change the rest of the car aswell. And that would take weeks to match everything. That could be championship decisive.
