F1 will not screw Red Bull like WEC screwed Toyota

–by Mark Cipolloni–

The FIA and WEC officials gave Toyota the royal screw when it hit them with a huge Balance of Power weight penalty just before the 24 Hours of Le Mans because they had won the first three WEC races of 2023.

Toyota got the royal screw

Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali said on the F1 Beyond The Grid Podcast it would be an unfair “manipulation” to change rules mid-season to stop Red Bull running away with the F1 championship.

When asked if he had considered stepping in, Domenicali said: “I think it is not fair to say that.

“It’s not correct because we cannot be seen as part of manipulation. This is not correct, and this is not fair. I am not [imagining] at all this kind of approach.”

“The others are very, very close. If you look at the gaps to the other teams, I think that they did an incredible job, [and it] needs to be rewarded. So, as I said, it’s clear that the aim of what we want to do is to make sure that these gaps will stay as small as possible.”

Any team with a mindset of ‘We need to pull Red Bull down’ instead of pushing themselves ahead does not deserve a spot F1.
