Franz Tost: Mercedes-domination is not good for formula 1

Three races, three wins for Mercedes. The formula 1 season 2020 has similarly started the season in 2019, when the silver arrows were even able to win the first eight races in the series. Real tension in the world Cup came on, so never really. AlphaTauri team boss Franz Tost fears that it could run in 2020 in a similar way.

"For the formula 1 it is of course good that Mercedes and Hamilton will dominate again," said the Austrians in 'ServusTV'. As a criticism of Mercedes, he wants to know but not understood. "But I must also say that you are really doing a super good Job," he says clearly in the terms of the series champion for 2014.

"Personally, I hope that it will succeed in Max Verstappen and Red Bull a few times [to beat them], and that he tempts hopefully the world Cup thereby to the voltage. But it will be difficult, because the package you put together is even better than in the last few years," says Tost.

After the first three races, Verstappen was missing in the driver's championship already 30 counter top Hamilton, in the constructors, Red Bull is already 66 points behind Mercedes. Recently in Hungary, Verstappen took second place in the best result of the season for the bulls, although he was crashed prior to the Start already.

"That just shows that Max is always at the Limit - even in the round to Start. The features of him", take him Tost in protection, and declared that the Dutchman had shown a "sensational race". However, he profited with his second place also of Valtteri Bottas lost at the Start after an error of several positions.

From the pure Pace it seems for Red Bull to be at the moment very difficult, under normal circumstances, with a Mercedes to keep up. In the target Verstappen had on Sunday just 8.7 seconds behind Hamilton. However, the champion just before the end to make an additional pit stop, which distorted the real distance.
