Marko admits Red Bull are behind on chassis

We’ve been told for the last few years that the only thing holding Red Bull back was the Renault engine, and now they’ve got a decent Honda engine, there’s a problem with their chassis.

Helmut Marko has admitted that Pierre Gasly’s crash in testing ruined parts they only had one of, setting their chassis development back a way.

Marko said: "We had an ideal weekend in Melbourne in terms of engines.

"The engine ran smoothly from day one until the race. Also the adaptation, drivability and all that.

"In terms of the chassis, we still had deficits. Certainly to a degree because of the fact that we never drove with the full package in Barcelona because Gasly destroyed essential parts that we only had one of.”
