Does Mercedes have a world champion bonus?
Marko: "Let's put it this way: It's noticeable that the rule changes and decisions have always been good for Mercedes lately, for example: Pirelli has changed the tire tread for 2019 so they will not overheat, but 2018 had only Mercedes a problem with it.
In 2019 suddenly only Mercedes gets the temperatures always in the correct working window. All other not. It's funny. We all had the opportunity to react to it, but the concepts of the cars were all designed for less downforce. Only Mercedes chose to build a car with a lot of downforce and traction - in hindsight, that was exactly the way to get the most from the new-generation tires. "
Marko continues, "Although I can not prove that Mercedes got data earlier than we did, I can not rule it out, but it does not boost confidence when you look at Liberty company car (it's a Mercedes), with a Stuttgart number in the Monaco paddock, with Pirelli tires on it, we at Red Bull will look very closely at the future development of Formula One and there will also be discussions with Pirelli. "
So the question now is, Is liberty and Pirelli favors Mercedes ?
Or Marko is crazy to suspect something like this ?
