標題 Marko: Mercedes F1 push for FIA help on porpoising has "backfired"
Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko believes Mercedes’ lobbying of the
FIA to help cure porpoising in Formula 1 has "backfired".
In the wake of a push from a number of drivers, including Mercedes duo GeorgeRussell and Lewis Hamilton, asking the FIA to help address the extreme
bouncing on safety grounds, the governing body moved into action ahead of theCanadian Grand Prix.
It issued a technical directive revealing plans to impose a vertical
oscillating metric that would force teams to limit the bouncing of their
cars, or risk having to raise ride height.
Furthermore, teams were supposed to be allowed to take extra measures to
strengthen their floors – which included the addition of a second floor stay.
But while the FIA’s response caused angst because it did not strictly follow
the right procedures, in terms of making actual rule changes, the planned
bouncing limit for later in the year could be something that hurts Mercedes.
For with it becoming clear that the W13 needs to run very low to the ground
to deliver its maximum performance potential, that makes it most prone to
needing intervention from the FIA if it keeps hitting the ground.
That is why Marko, whose Red Bull team do not see the need for the FIA to getinvolved in the matter, think that Mercedes could ultimately be hurt by what
Speaking to Motorsport.com about the situation, Marko said the FIA threat in
forcing teams suffering the worst to lift their cars was exactly what could
hurt Mercedes the most.
And that is why he suggested that Mercedes’ efforts to get the FIA involved
has had the opposite outcome to what the German car manufacturer wanted.
Marko: "FIA會要求豚跳效應最嚴重的車隊必須提高車身, 而這項要求會帶給賓士最嚴重的傷害"
“Exactly,” he said. “In German we say: 'der Schuss ging nach hinten los'.
So it basically backfired for Mercedes.”
Marko believes that the FIA should stay out of the whole porpoising debate,
as the phenomenon is not something that every team is suffering from.
“I fully agree with Max [Verstappen], it is not correct to change something
like this during the season,” he said.
“It can’t be the FIA who is making our set-ups. Changing the ride height
means changing the set-up and the FIA can’t do that. My next point is that
all of this is the result of one team having problems.
“That team should just sort out their own problems and not affect the other
While the first TD was not something that impacted Red Bull, there is the
possibility of a fresh course being laid down by the FIA with it due to meet
technical directors this week.
Marko said a lot more details were required from the governing body to work
out just how much it planned to get involved in car set-ups.
“I think there are too many parameters which are not clear yet,” he added.
“So I think the FIA has to come up with another clarification.”
