Red Bull tip Ferrari to challenge Mercedes in Canada
Red Bull motorsport advisor Dr Helmut Marko has tipped Ferrari to finally make a breakthrough at the Canadian Grand Prix. The Scuderia have failed to live up to pre-season expectations so far in 2019, as Mercedes have won every race.
Ferrari's impressive pre-season pace came from the mighty engine in the SF90, but the car's aerodynamic issues have been shown up in the races, as the Silver Arrows have produced a car rapid in the turns.
However, Canada presents one of the F1 calendar's most power-hungry tracks in the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
And Marko expects an upswing from the red cars, perhaps putting paid to hopes of Max Verstappen getting on the podium in Montreal, as he did 12 months ago.
"In Montreal at the weekend Ferrari would have to stand a chance because of their strong engine," Marko told Auto Bild.
"Of course we will try everything, but our time will come at the latest from the race in Singapore.
