McLaren zou Ferrari nog een zware klap kunnen toebrengen in de GP van Rusland

© Aangeboden door GPblog NL

Met het ongelooflijke resultaat van de Italiaanse Grand Prix, is McLaren in een geweldige stemming. Maar Sochi zou wel eens een “terugkeer naar de aarde”-ervaring kunnen betekenen voor de Woking ploeg. Hier is wat ze kunnen hopen en verwachten van het komende weekend.

Het circuit

Met een ongelooflijk lang rechte stuk vanaf start/finish en het rechte stuk achteraan van bochten 10 tot en met 13 zijn de motorprestaties van cruciaal belang voor succes op dit circuit. Met DRS-ondersteuning worden inhaalacties een stuk eenvoudiger. De aeropakketten zouden ook minimale wijzigingen hebben ondergaan ten opzichte van Monza, terwijl de ophanging en de kleine aanpassingen de auto’s door de off-camber bochten moeten helpen.

Met slecht weer in het vooruitzicht zal het motorvermogen een cruciale rol spelen in het terugwinnen van de verloren tijd in de bochten. Dit is zeker het geval gebleken tijdens eerdere raceweekenden in Sochi, waarbij het dominante Mercedes-team telkens de overwinning op het Russische circuit in handen had.

McLaren’s hoop

McLaren’s indrukwekkende snelheid op rechte stukken was goed te zien tijdens de Grand Prix van Italië. De coureurs Ricciardo en Norris lagen respectievelijk tweede en derde toen de lichten op zondag uitgingen. Daardoor konden ze zich staande houden in een gevecht met de auto’s van Mercedes en Red Bull en zo hun eerste een-tweetje sinds 2012 claimen.

Sochi kan echter een ander verhaal gaan vertellen. McLaren heeft in de afgelopen drie jaar slechts één keer succes geboekt op het Russische circuit. De zesde plaats van Sainz en de achtste plaats van Norris tijdens de Grand Prix van 2019 waren de enige puntenfinishes die ze wisten te behalen. Ze hopen opnieuw op de extra prestaties van hun motor om een sterk resultaat neer te zetten. Sluit de mogelijkheid van teamwork ook niet uit. Met de rechte stukken die zorgen voor slipstream vanaf de start, zouden we kunnen zien dat beide Papaya-wagens elkaar helpen om hogerop te komen en weg te rijden van hun rivalen (denk terug aan Ferrari 2019).

Hoewel ze het ongelooflijke succes dat ze in Monza behaalden misschien niet zullen herhalen, kunnen ze Ferrari nog steeds een zware slag toebrengen in het constructeurskampioenschap. Het team uit Maranello heeft zich qua motorprestaties goed verbeterd ten opzichte van 2020, met de snelste tijden op de Beau Rivage heuvel in Monaco en het veroveren van de derde rij in de Italiaanse Grand Prix.

Dit zou wel eens een cruciaal slagveld kunnen worden in de strijd om de derde plaats in het constructeurskampioenschap.
