F1 is more exciting and unpredictable with Pirelli rubber – Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz



Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz is very happy with 2012 unpredictable and exciting F1 season. He says that 2012 F1 turn into a type of lottery to find out the window in which a tyre works.

Mateschitz is very confident; his team Red Bull will produce potential performance this season. And he also admits that Lotus has been the biggest surprise of all.

“F1 is more exciting and more unpredictable than ever before,” Mateschitz told Autosport.

“Obviously, caused by the rule changes before the season, the top teams moved closer together. I always had confidence in the potential of our RB8 and I still have, no doubt.

“But everyone has to learn F1 again. It has become a kind of lottery to find out the window in which a tyre works.

“And I do not believe this just happens on purpose to create more overtaking and tension in the races. I suppose no-one really understands these tyres.”

“Lotus has been the biggest surprise of all. I think Kimi indeed had the pace to win in Bahrain. The question is how long Lotus will be capable to keep the pace of development work the other major outfits will show. If they can keep up with them they will be a force to be reckoned with.”
