Ferrari is the team that managed to put an end to the dominance of Red Bull and win the race in Singapore against the chances of Red Bull. It is exciting to note that someone else has finally won the race and we might be seeing the end of Red Bull's dominance as a result.
Red Bull fans still believe that this race means nothing and that in the future they will continue where they left off. Toto Wolff is one of those who is happy that Red Bull has finally stopped dominating. It is important to note, however, that Wolff is cautious and believes the Austrian team may be able to continue on its current pace in the sequel as well.
We will see how much both teams can do at this moment. “I think they [Red Bull] have been so strong, they have won all races this year,” Wolff said, as quoted by crash.net! “We must not forget we have this outlier here in Singapore which was a difficult track for us in the past in dominant years.
I have no doubt that they will be strong for the conventional race tracks. It’s a breath of fresh air that we have a different winner, we have a podium without them so you've got to take the small positives in a year of Red Bull dominance”.
Mercedes and its goals
Mercedes has yet to achieve the goals they set for themselves. It seems that they have 'written off' this season and that the focus is already on the next one. There is no doubt that Mercedes has quality, as was evident in the race in Singapore.
There was a chance for Russell to win, but sometimes you have to be lucky when those moments come along. Mercedes needs to learn from this and make sure that they are better prepared for the next big race. They need to stay focused and keep striving for success.
