Wolff names Red Bull favourite: 'Fastest car at the end of 2020'

Mercedes is once again being singled out by everyone as the favourite to take the title in 2021. Mercedes itself, however, is looking at the competition, with Toto Wolff keeping an eye on a lot of teams.

Red Bull a favourite?

Mercedes has been dominant in Formula 1 for the past seven years. Seven world constructors' titles and the drivers' title has been won by a Mercedes driver each time. For 2021, Mercedes is also the favourite, yet again they are anxiously watching the competition.

''Red Bull Racing has a strong driver line-up and had the fastest car at the end of the year. So they are definitely among the favourites in 2021, especially for the constructors' championship. I don't see why they can't compete for the title in both championships," Wolff said according to Speedweek.com.

Aston Martin and McLaren

The Austrian also expects a return of Ferrari. ''It will be interesting to see how Carlos Sainz will do against Charles Leclerc. Ferrari will be stronger than in 2020, they will have to be. They had a weak chassis in 2020, but they will have learned from their mistakes.''

''McLaren can also provide a surprise in 2021. Daniel Ricciardo is a well-known figure and I myself have high hopes for Lando Norris. Aston Martin should also be up front when you have such a big name. It will be fascinating to follow them in 2021'', concludes the Austrian Mercedes team boss.
