Ferrari sporting director Laurent Mekies said the team never considered upgrading their 2021 car to meet McLaren’s challenge as their goal was to attack the 2022 season.

Ferrari and McLaren fought long and hard for third place in the Constructors’ Championship behind Red Bull and future winners Mercedes, and the Italian team only sealed their podium in the last race of the season.

But Mekies revealed that the team had never considered devoting resources to developing their car, but rather focusing their energies behind the scenes on its 2022 car, which Ferrari is hoping to have enough speed to challenge at the top of the standings. when new automotive engineering regulations come into effect. To obligate.

“The answer is no,” Mekies told Autosport when asked if the team had considered upgrading their 2021 model. “I think we were very clear from the start, we made the decision to move to 2022.

“We were hoping at the time, because we’re far enough away from McLaren, which is at the start of the season, we were hoping that we could eventually fight for third place. But we had chosen not to compromise for 2022. So it is probably the clearest answer I can give you today.

“We have been asked 25 times, and it’s impossible. The only development we had in the second half of the year was the hybrid, which is still something we will be using for next year.

Honda believes the communication problems, born of immense respect between them and McLaren, contributed to the failure of their reunion.

Hopes were high for McLaren when they went from Mercedes power to reconnect with Honda for 2015.

The duo had already enjoyed great success together between 1988 and 1992 when McLaren won four Honda manufacturer titles in the span of five seasons.

Optimism reigned then when Honda returned as an engine manufacturer alongside McLaren in 2015, with the Woking team looking to bounce back from a 2014 campaign that had brought in just two podiums.

The reunion failed to reclaim former glories, however, with poor reliability and inferior power output, meaning McLaren failed to finish on the podium during their three-year stint with Honda. before separating at the end of 2017.

And the main problem Honda felt was not a lack of mutual respect. Instead, there were too many.

Quoted by Motorsport.comHonda Formula 1 boss Masashi Yamamoto said: “Since McLaren’s time we have learned a lot from them, but we think we have too much mutual respect.

“That’s why we had maybe a little bit of a lack of communication and then it was a shame that the project did not go well.”

Ironically, it was after the McLaren relationship ended that Honda started to gain a foothold in Formula 1.

By teaming up with Toro Rosso, Honda has done enough with the Red Bull junior team to convince the parent company to also go for Honda power from 2019.

Red Bull returned to the top of the Drivers‘ Championship in 2021 thanks to Max Verstappen. But in a recurring theme, Honda has now left Formula 1 once again, with the company instead focusing on its carbon neutral project.

Honda will assist Red Bull next season, but engine development will be the responsibility of the team after the formation of Red Bull Powertrains.

“Leaving F1 was a very big decision for Honda, and it was for carbon neutrality and also for customers around the world,” said Yamamoto.

“Although we had good results this year, we never had a discussion to stay here.”

Asked to pick a highlight of Honda’s final F1 stint, Yamamoto, speaking ahead of Max Verstappen’s World Championship triumph, said: “The best moment for me is the Australian Grand Prix in 2019, the first podium with Red Bull Racing. Also, of course, Austria 2019, the first victory with Red Bull.

Mercedes was the lord and master of the hybrid era of Formula 1 that began in 2014. But in the eight years that have been driven around this time, the relationship between Red Bull Racing and Ferrari is particularly close. When it comes to podiums achieved, Red Bull only wins.

Red Bull Racing wins P2 in hybrid era

In 2022, major new regulations will be introduced in F1. The hybrid era is not over yet, F1 cars will continue to run with the additional electric motor, but a new phase in F1 appears to be starting. The cards can be shuffled again, so to speak. Looking back eight seasons with hybrid engines, Mercedes is the clear winner; Red Bull Racing follows and Ferrari is in third place.

Mercedes has scored 232 podiums since 2014. The team has done so with Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg and Valtteri Bottas. All these years the team managed to win the constructors ‘title as well, but this year they failed to win the drivers‘ title. The battle between the teams for P2 in the hybrid era promises to be particularly exciting. In eight years, Red Bull is on 102 podiums and Ferrari out of 100.

Verstappen takes almost a fifth of the total podiums

In the early part of the era, it was Red Bull chasing Ferrari and Mercedes, who slowly turned around until Ferrari fell in the middle of the pack in 2020 and 2021. In 2021, Max Verstappen has had a phenomenal year, winning eighteen podiums and almost a fifth of Red Bull’s total podiums over the past eight years.

In Abu Dhabi, Carlos Sainz managed to clinch the 100th podium for Ferrari at that time. Of course, that didn’t bring the team closer to Red Bull, as Verstappen won there and took his title. Behind Ferrari comes Williams in fourth place with 16 podiums. We would have almost forgotten, but the team was often “the best of the rest” until 2016 with Bottas and Felipe Massa at the wheel. McLaren takes fifth place with ten podiums.

Haas’ new car won’t have much to do to be more successful than its predecessor. The team ended the season scoreless, taking the tenth and final place in the Constructors’ Championship, with team principal Guenther Steiner openly admitting at the start of the season that the team was focusing all of their development work on the 2022 car. .

As Racing Point turned into Aston Martin, the battle between Lance Stroll and new teammate Sebastian Vettel was one of the most intriguing clashes of the season.

Both were beaten by their respective teammates in 2020, especially in qualifying. How would Vettel react to being abandoned by Ferrari and how would Stroll compare to a quadruple world champion, easily his most competitive teammate to date?

Stroll had the best start to the year, qualifying and passing his teammate in Sakhir and Imola as Vettel played himself. As Stroll put Aston Martin’s first points on the board, it wasn’t until Monaco that Vettel scored for the first time with fifth place, while Stroll took eighth place.

In Azerbaijan, the two Aston Martin riders made good use of a longer first stint as Vettel temporarily inherited the lead before his first save. Stroll stayed even longer until he suffered a horrific tire failure along the pit straight and luckily was able to come out unscathed. Vettel did a brilliant job fending off former Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc to take second place and take a big advantage over Stroll, whom he held for the remainder of the season.

The gap could have been even greater. In Hungary, Stroll made a mess braking for the first corner in slippery conditions and crashed into Leclerc’s Ferrari, taking it with his own car in the process. Vettel finished third after the scrum and spent most of the race in second, chasing Esteban Ocon for victory to secure his second podium of the year – until he was disqualified for not producing sufficient fuel sample after the race. The loss could have been even more infuriating, as a slightly slow pit stop cost Vettel the chance to take the lead.

The tangled pair at the start in Monza

Vettel enjoyed a stroll qualifying streak over four consecutive laps on either side of the summer break, but Stroll put in the best racing performance when the race resumed, finishing ahead of his teammate at Zandvoort, Monza (where he dealt very firmly with Vettel in the first round), Sochi (where they faced each other again) and Istanbul.

Then Vettel turned the tide of the qualifying battle in the final third of the year, beating Stroll five straight Saturdays to end the season 13-8 on his youngest teammate. Stroll had his best result of the season with a sixth place finish in Qatar, which was the last time an Aston Martin driver finished in points.

Their first season together had returned to seventh place in the Constructors’ Championship, with Vettel winning the qualifying and points battles, the latter despite being disqualified in Hungary. But Stroll underscored his deserved reputation for bringing the car home regularly, ending the year with more ranked finishes ahead of his world champion teammate.

On the most important points, however, Stroll once again made a lesser contribution than the guy from the other garage, as happened twice with Sergio Perez and in his debut season alongside Felipe Massa. in 2017. This could be seen as an inevitable consequence of being paired with some very experienced teammates, but as Stroll finished the season with his 100th start, that explanation has surely reached its expiration date.

Nico Rosberg’s team beat Lewis Hamilton’s to become the first champions of the new Extreme E off-road electric series on December 20.

The competition between former Formula 1 teammates and the world champions who have become owners, neither of whom has driven, resulted in a final ‘Jurassic X Prix’ in the south of England.

Rosberg X Racing’s Johan Kristoffersson and Molly Taylor finished fourth in the event won by X44 riders Sébastien Loeb and Cristina Gutierrez to finish tied on points but ahead 3-1 on wins.

JBXE, the team of 2009 Formula 1 champion Jenson Button, finished third overall.

It was the second weekend in a row Hamilton had lost, the Mercedes driver beaten by Red Bull’s Max Verstappen in his attempt for a Formula 1 championship record-breaking eighth in Abu Dhabi on December 12.

Hamilton and Rosberg, the 2016 Formula 1 champion, were previously teammates at Mercedes.

“We entered Extreme E to raise awareness about climate change and promote sustainability, but also as a racing team that we want to win and therefore we will remember that feeling forever,” said Rosberg.

Series founder Alejandro Agag was happy with how the inaugural season went.

“It hasn’t been easy in the midst of a pandemic, but we had five X Prix events and the final in Dorset produced some spectacular races,” said the Spaniard.

The last tour was at Bovington, a large no-go area of ​​forest and moor used by the British Army for tank and artillery training.

The series, with identical SUVs and male and female drivers in each range, aims to raise awareness of climate change and promote sustainability by running in remote and damaged environments.

Other tours were held in Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Greenland and Sardinia after those planned for the Brazilian Amazon and Argentine Patagonia were canceled due to COVID-19.

Both drivers have dominated the standings in recent years, finishing in the top two every year since 2016. But this is the first time Verstappen has won.

In what has become a long-standing tradition created by Autosport, each of the F1 team leaders was invited to choose their top 10 drivers of the year. Individual results are kept secret – so the team managers can answer honestly – and the tally is calculated using the F1 point structure which ranges from 25 points for the first to 1 point for the 10th.

For the first time since entering F1 in 2015, world champion Verstappen won with 188 points against 174 for Hamilton.

The poll result comes at the end of a campaign where his team boss Christian Horner said the Dutchman has been a tremendous inspiration to everyone at Red Bull.

Looking back on the season and Verstappen’s progress, Horner said: “I think we just gave him a better car and he used it a lot.

“He finished all the races, first or second, except one, where he missed half of his car in Budapest. And the statistics speak for themselves: the number of laps he has led, pole positions, race victories. He was exceptional and so few mistakes under tremendous pressure.

“I think what you forget is the amount of pressure that has built up during the championship. And the way that as a young man he handled and handled it was inspiring. “

Lando Norris rose to third place overall after an extremely impressive season with McLaren, which saw him claim his first pole position at the Russian Grand Prix. He was the top 10 climber, with Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz both gaining four spots from their 2020 positions, while returning Fernando Alonso was fifth.

Despite their respective victories in the GPs of Azerbaijan and Italy, Sergio Perez (fifth in 2020) and Daniel Ricciardo (fourth) came out of the top 10.

The nine team managers who took part were Toto Wolff (Mercedes), Christian Horner (Red Bull), Andreas Seidl (McLaren), Laurent Rossi (Alpine), Otmar Szafnauer (Aston Martin), Fred Vasseur (Alfa Romeo), Franz Tost (AlphaTauri), Jost Capito (Williams) and Gunther Steiner (Haas). The only team that did not participate was Ferrari.

It was unusual in that the plan is to release all overtaken cars before the race leaders.

However, to the dismay of Hamilton’s teammates, Verstappen’s crowned title was secured.

The Titan Racing Formula team are racing for the rest of the year as they continue to work on their car.

Besides being a club for subclasses, the work on the car is also a senior design project for seniors majoring in mechanical engineering. The club is known as a legacy team that has been around since 2007.

While most students will be resting after the upcoming finals week, the team will continue to work through the winter break. This year’s team was put together before the end of spring 2021, started around June and will continue to work until May.

This all leads to the big competition which will take place in Michigan in May 2022. For the seniors, it is a reward for all the hard work they have put in throughout the year.

Kevin Estrada, one of the seniors, is working on power training.

“It’s a never-ending process, but we use this process to make something work. So it takes a lot of hours, but at the end of the day it will be worth it to see something creative based just on our ideas, ”said Estrada. “That’s pretty cool honestly.”

At present, the car is about 30% complete. Over the next month, they hope to start seeing improvements and keep making progress towards the final product. Then they will start to meet with local Formula Society of Automotive Engineers teams to organize friendly competitions to test the performance of the car.

The main focus of the car is on how it behaves and behaves rather than its speed. It focuses on how the car turns, when it accelerates and when it brakes. Although the car has a maximum power of 75 mph, only one of the competitions the team usually participates in focuses on speed, while the others focus on driving the car.

“Even though we are building a race car, this project is a mechanical engineering project first, then a race car project last. So we’re focusing more on the technical side, on how things work, on how the vehicle behaves in certain situations, and we’re trying to get around that problem, ”said Eddie Park, project manager and team worker. suspension.

The COVID pandemic has also affected the team, with some competitions being phased out. The team itself has been cut in half, from 20 to 25 usual people to just 12, Estrada said.

Daniel Cruz, responsible for the team’s suspension, said he was delighted to see what the team can do.

“This year, coming out of COVID, building a whole new car from the ground up. This is probably the motivation I want to see. It keeps me here and other than that the aspect of the team this year is pretty good, keeps us going and moving forward, ”said Cruz.

While mostly engineers, anyone interested in cars or engineering is also welcome, Estrada said.
