I was watching the video about Newey
And this is something that I have wondered about for some time. To me, it seems like having access to Newey is like having some cheat code.
Now again we see how dominant Red Bull is. And to me, it seems when Mercedes dominated it was mostly because they had such an engine advantage.
Imo Newey is constantly making great cars.
Now that we are in an aerodynamics rule era it seems to me that we don't even see anyone that can challenge him.
I personally find it weird that we have so few real competitors on that front that can go toe to toe in this area.
Like for example in Monaco we saw the floors of Red Bull, Ferrari, and Mercedes and in comparison to Red Bull, they look very simple.
It seems to me that if you take Newey out of the equation the field would be much closer together. Is it that I haven't really followed this field or is there no one that can challenge Newey? It seems to me that he has been on the top for so long.
To me, it seems there is so little new blood out there or someone that can go toe to toe with him and personally I find that quite sad and weird.
How do other people see this? Am I missing something? To me Newey is playing chess while others are playing checkers in that department of aerodynamics.
He is being the number one for so long as far as I know and I wonder where are the new ones or those that can genuinely challenge him.
