Red Bull boss Christian Horner humorously warned the Mercedes team that Ferrari had done a much better job with its powertrain this year, and the once infamous Mercedes party mode is now more like an afternoon tea party.
After a summer break, Ferrari celebrated in three consecutive races, with the Maranello team dominating the straights for the entire season.
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner acknowledges that Ferrari has become the benchmark for all competition this year.
Mercedes ‘party mode’ looks like an afternoon tea party because of Ferrari. Of course, Mercedes should be congratulated for the work they have done in the past, but it must be acknowledged that Ferrari is the current benchmark for all other F1 teams. The power they can achieve is fantastic and we have a lot of work to do to catch them. ”
