Team leaders: Stress for mechanics, despite the Triple-Header manageable

In August and September will be subject to the formula-1-Teams a real test. Because the Triple-Header with two Silverstone races and the Spanish Grand Prix, the next one follows according to a following race-free weekend the same, when it goes in Spa, Monza and Mugello more. A feat of strength, especially for the mechanics.

On you to probably the greatest work attributed to workload. To relieve you yet, but have already taken measures, stresses the Haas team principal Guenther Steiner: "rule number one: at Night, we are not able to work. (...) So you get every evening, nine hours of rest, if you go to bed, and nothing else to do."

in Addition, the formula 1 Management trying to avoid for the Rest of the season, another Triple-Header with the exception of those that already exist. "This is a very unusual Situation, but I think you handle it pretty well."

formed The right is Franz Tost, team principal of AlphaTauri. "We must first be happy and grateful that we have the race that we are on the race track, because a few months ago that was not the case," he says. An Overload of the mechanics with their work, he does not see, in spite of the dense calendar.

"Okay, if something Special occurs, the car breaks down, then that is a different Situation. But a race mechanic, especially a mechanic in formula 1, must be used to it and settle it," says Tost the quality of the employees.

in Addition, the Triple existed-Header usually consists of two weekends of racing at a track like Silverstone 1-2 and Barcelona, which are to disarm the Situation. "I don't see a big Problem, because it is only once that you are changing the place," says Tost. I don't see anyone who is tired. In AlphaTauri especially."

Horner: stress level at Triple-headers manageable adds

And the Red Bull team boss Christian Horner: "The life of a mechanic is today compared with what it was ten years ago, 15 years ago, quite different, particularly with the Parc Ferme. You have a certain amount of time, you need to be of the race track, and a Triple-Header is a lot more bearable."

night shifts "like in the good old times" were no longer on the agenda, which is why Horner evaluates the stress level, with the Triple-headers to be manageable. "And at the end of the day, you are all crazy about racing," the team boss.

He is sure: "If you had all the choice to have no championship or to drive three or even four races in a row, would vote in every single one of them to be at the race track and to race." In the process, Horner knows just what he's talking about, finally, his Team put in Budapest for a night shift.

Red Bull for night shift in Budapest with P2 rewarded

There, Red Bull pulled one of his Joker and the curfew broke of from 1 to 9 PM, to work over night on the car. "All of them were exhausted, but also overjoyed. We have brought them a hell of a tough weekend," recalls Horner. "They have worked through the night to change the specifications of the car."

On Sunday, Max Verstappen continued his Red Bull before the Start in the race - and again, the mechanic had to ran: "fortunately, the damage was significant, but not enough to prevent starting."

"The boys had 20 minutes time to switch to components that normally - I don't know - an hour and a half would need, and you made it," says the Red Bull team boss. "It was a phenomenal performance, along with everything else is happening. Max has to be rewarded in the best possible way."

The Dutchman finished Second behind Mercedes-Dominator Lewis Hamilton. "He delivered a great race with a great result and a podium. As the weekend came to an end, you had the feeling that all the hard work pays off in the end. This has clearly shown," says Horner.
