F1 » Berger: Red Bull can dominate F1 for years to come


Adrian Newey's Red Bull Racing RB6 is so utterly dominant that the energy drinks-backed outfit can afford to make mistakes and still claim the F1 2010 crown, contends Gerhard Berger - and several more in seasons to come, too, for that matter...

How long has Berger been in F1? Someone needs to remind him that F1 changes like the weather. I hope he was misquoted. He comes off sounding like a fool! A perfect example was Brawn last year! This year after the name change not so hot!

@MichaelE, this is Crash.net, everything's misquoted just like in the tabloids. If you read through the article and ignore all the waffle and padding, what Berger actually said was:

"I see them being at the front for the next few years."

At the front, not dominating, just one of the front-running teams. Very different to the misleading title.

And yes they probably will be :p

as long as newey is with rbr, we can expect them to be at the front. interesting article on f1fanatic, which mentions various items that others have complained about, but all of which were found to be legal. the simple fact is that the bull has been designed as a cohesive package, from the off, and others are trying to catch up with add-ons. and michaelie, berger was in f1 for quite some time, and gave a very good account of himself. he had a great relationship with senna (one of the few to do so), so i fully respect what he says. if he says schumi will win next year, i presume that you would then believe him!?!? (joke)

Mclaren have got a lot of catching up to do and I personally cant see them doing this before the end of the season. Mclaren need to figure out the front wing and blown diffuser to their full potential. Im actually suprised how ferrari have added more pace to their car but RBR is a country mile ahead.

IF Adrian Newey brings another car to the circuit which is as good aerodynamically or superior to this year's model, IF RBR manages to get a better engine than the Renault and IF the car and the drivers adapt to the new Pirelli tyres, than yes, I agree with Berger that RBR would once again be in the forefront and in a dominating position again next season.
These are IFS which Ferrari and McLaren can also achieve as well as teams like Mercedes GP. Who would ever have predicted the phenomenal success of Brawn GP and of Jenson Button winning the WDC last year. They won both championships easily in the first six races.

As others have said Newey is the key. The rules will also play a factor. If the rules remain fairly stable we should expect to see the field tighten up. If there are any big rule changes then the Newey designed car will probably get the early jump on the rest.

dominant/front runners till Adrian Newey retires or is poached by yet another team. see Williams when he was there and McLaren! It's not the team/drivers/car that are dominant in RB it's the aerodynamisist.

Worth noting that out of McLaren and Williams it is only McLaren that have managed to recover and win following Newey leaving them
