Austrian Gp 2022, Round 11 of the Formula One World Championship is likely to be Wet. It seems Formula one is taking the rain wherever it goes. With the new floor scandal slowly brewing, it is going to be an interesting weekend for these developments. Will Redbull be the quickest car? or does Ferrari has something up its sleeve. In this section, we look into all that is to know about the upgrades in Austrian Gp.
Mercedes in Austrian Gp
There are no upgrades yet after the floor upgrade in Silverstone. But the mood in the team is positive. Having a reliable PU means that they won’t be spending any money trying to “fix gremlins” and can fully focus on an upgrade that will bring performance before the MGU-K and ERS freeze. The indication that Mercedes is moving in the right direction in terms of upgrades means that they can soon enough start bringing parts that enhance and optimize performance. Their target might be French Gp in 2 weeks’ time. But for Austrian Gp, they are keeping hold.
They might expect a podium if reliability problems in Ferrari and Redbull catch up again. Let see.
Red Bull in Austrian Gp
Redbull though they say they are in cost cap trouble seems to be bringing in parts almost to every Grand Prix. It may be because of the unreliability of the engine. For Austrian Gp, the Redbull has added a Central cooling exit, floor fences, and a new break disc shield version.
