Who do you think is best placed to challenge Verstappen and Red Bull in 2024?
Chris Medland, Special Contributor: I genuinely think any of the four chasing teams – Mercedes, Ferrari, Aston Martin and McLaren – have shown they can challenge at different times, especially with the rapid gains made by the latter two, who have improved facilities and new personnel to continue that trend. But I still feel like Mercedes are most likely to be the team to do so. Ferrari’s momentum stalled a little after the strong start to last year, whereas Mercedes got their car wrong again this season and surely will have learned the direction they need to take in 2024.
David Tremayne, Hall of Fame F1 Journalist: This time last year we all held high hopes of Mercedes and Ferrari and were disappointed. I cannot believe either of them will fail again so badly, so you’d have to hope they figure things out better and can start to challenge. McLaren, too, looks much more threatening in their latest no-nonsense guise under Andrea Stella, so I certainly wouldn’t rule them out, either.
