Kravitz sees what Hamilton means: ‘People are going to wonder how Red Bull can be so much faster’

Ted Kravitz can agree with Lewis Hamilton’s surprise at the speed of Red Bull Racing. The RB19 was also unapproachable in Jeddah and easily cut through the field. At the front, Sergio PĂ©rez was able to keep the lead with two fingers in the nose. Kravitz thinks people are going to wonder how it is possible that the Austrian formation can be so much faster than everyone else on the grid.

During the Grand Prix of Saudi Arabia, the seven-time world champion was overtaken quite early in the race by Max Verstappen, who came from P15. It was easy for the Dutchman to overtake everyone. He waited until the straight, opened the DRS and overtook Hamilton. The Brit couldn’t understand why the RB19 was so incredibly fast. Pit lane reporter Kravitz agrees. “A, Hamilton is right, and B, what he is pointing to is the ease with which Max Verstappen passed him on the straight after he opened the DRS,” says Kravitz at Sky Sports.

“What Lewis (Hamilton, ed.) Says is that he has never seen anyone gain so much speed by opening the DRS wing,” the Briton continues. “He (Hamilton, ed.) Just didn’t understand how that was possible.” Red Bull were designated the favorites for victory early into the Jeddah weekend. On the straights, the RB19 ran about six kilometers per hour faster than the Ferrari car, and Red Bull was at least thirteen kilometers per hour faster than Aston Martin. The Austrian team therefore had a considerable advantage on the straights, and that certainly benefited the Jeddah Corniche Circuit.

“How can they be about 20 miles an hour faster on the straight than everyone else?”

The top speed of the car with the bull surprised everyone, including Kravitz. There are many interesting technical aspects in Formula 1. “A lot of people will look at the Red Bull and wonder: how is it possible that they manage to gain about 32 kilometers on the straights against all the other teams?” Kravitz concludes. So the pit reporter watched with the same disbelief as the seven-time world champion.
