What each F1 team needs to improve with its 2021 car | The Race F1 Podcast

With Formula 1’s car-launch season fast approaching, we lay out the key areas of improvement for each team in 2021.
The first of the launches confirmed so far is McLaren on February 15, a month ahead of the only pre-season test in Bahrain.
Despite teams having to carry over significant amounts of last year’s design, there’s still scope of change in the 2021 cars - and therefore room to make up for 2020 shortcomings.
Gary Anderson, Mark Hughes and Scott Mitchell join Edd Straw to run through the 10 teams and what they need to do better this year if they are to improve on last season, and discuss which ones are best placed to do so.
And with Mercedes working to improve on the perfection of last year’s car, what are the chances of Red Bull pulling something out of the bag to make a fight of the world championship.

  • Criticizing Giovinazzi and saying that Alfa Romeo is lacking and Williams isn't is the biggest load of shit I've heard this pre season. Giovinazzi is way better than Latifi granted he's no LeClerc but he'll that's a ridiculous statement. Kimi is a 2 time world Champion and is one of the most consistent and most experienced drivers on the grid he's definitely going to get way more out of that car. Alfa Romeo Just need to develop the car. Once they can get into Q2 and push for Q3 then you can start calling out drivers. Till then think about your words guy.

  • A weaker Mercedes car, a strong McLaren and a strong Ferrari / AstonMartin. (With the current redbull). That will make the season interesting to watch. Likewise, Renault and Tauri fight for 6th place. And then the bottom three Williams, Haas and Sauber.

  • In terms of how they’ll do this year I suspect: Mercedes will be top dog as always. Red Bull will have improved and gotten closer to Mercedes but not quite close enough. Ferrari will have improve to be high midfield but not quite back up there with RB/Mercedes. McLaren will be 3rd best car/team. One of the most improved. Aston Martin will have a faster car than last year but overall perform slightly worse as their driver lineup isn’t amazing. Vettel will take a while to warm up. Alpine will fall back from last season/make fewer gains than Aston/McLaren. That close midfield battle between the three teams will widen and Alpine will fall behind the other two. Alpha Tauri will be one of the most impressive cars next season. They’ll have made decent gains and probably be up there in the midfield consistently. Alfa Romeo will be the most improved of the three teams at the rear. Unfortunately I think the gap between the bottom three and the midfield will widen so Alfa will consistently beat Williams/Haas but won’t be able to catch the other teams. Williams will improve quite a bit with new funding and consistently beat Haas. Their main challenge will be catching Alfa. Haas will be slower than last year, few improvements, new drivers and disorder within management/the factories will make them back of the grid. May not survive to 2022 season 🤷‍♂️ Here’s how I think the gaps will be: Mercedes Red Bull McLaren Aston Martin Ferrari Alpine Alpha Tauri Alfa Romeo Williams Haas

  • Not just a copy and paste form last year but Ultimate Copy and Paste - I think FIA should penalize Hamilton (the advert boy) 1 second for each £1 he erns annually above F1 mean average driver earnings at the start of the season - Then it would be just a little bit fairer than this scam - especially after Russel showing that he is a league better than this advert boy.

  • Gary Andersen's comments about Red bull not understanding why they start so poorly reflects very badly on them. Maybe Red Bull aren't as good as they think they are? The comments about Maclaren believing their own hype should be warning sign to Red bull as they forever talk themselves up and continue to produce cars which don't get unlocked for a good few races or in the 2020 season not really at all. We'll see in the next few weeks where they stand and also in 2022 where the order may change. I'm a big fan of Red bull and Max as they do things differently and F1 needs that but it's time to produce a cracking car from the off and see some good racing.

  • I heard James Allison talking the other day about the new challenges... and it strikes me Mercedes is an extremely well run and innovative team, who maybe have a different approach to engineering from many of the other teams. They speak so well in terms of contemporary approaches to engineering projects, project and team management, innovation, and product development. I've been studying project management in engineering innovation, and it's amazing how many organisations fail at this stuff. I could write a dissertation on how Mercedes seem to tick all the right boxes.

    • @mircea miclos good point 🤡 Hate the rigged game FIA set up, not the player. They need to deregulate car construction criteria that is not essential to safety. The innovations with safety shells + halo are great; but let all manufacturers build whatever they want with their limited budget and fuel. If Red Bull-Honda wants to go AWD aero, Merc wants superchargers, and Ferarri wants illegal fuel flow then let them. FIA mandating all cars look the same way then getting mad when Mercedes finds the correct answer and others copy the only championship-worthy (legal) answer on the grid is ridiculous. 👍
