Helmut Markus witnessed Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc claim his second win of the season in the first two races of his 2022 Formula 1 career. Red bulls Sergio Perez came second. In the meantime, George Russell took his first podium as a Mercedes driver when the Brit finished 3rd in the race.

The Monagesque started the race from pole position in front of the Red Bulls Max Verstappen. But the Dutchman retired on the 40th lap of the race after an engine failure. He was asked to stop the car on the track after smoke emanated from the rear of his RB18.

Chief Advisor of Red Bull, Helmut Markus was clearly frustrated with the result but says the team is working to improve their car for Round 4 at Imola. According to the Austrian, the RB18 is still standing “too difficult” due to the delay in the development of the car.

Marko said to De Telegraaf, “Our car is far too heavy. The RB18 ended late as we were in the title race to the end last year. Updates are coming for the upcoming race at Imola and the Grand Prix after. Hopefully we can then get closer to Ferrari. We are currently more than ten kilos heavier than Ferrari. When it comes to the lap time, we are already talking about a loss of three tenths.”

According to Marko, there was a fuel problem before the race, but it was resolved. Red Bull will try to reduce its deficit Ferrari in the constructor rating. The Scuderia lead the championship with more than 50 points between them and Red Bull who are behind in 3rd place Mercedes.
