Mercedes began their 2017 campaign with back-to-back P1s in Friday’s practice in Melbourne, edging Ferrari and Red Bull.
Red Bull Racing’s Dan Fallows is one of the key members of the design team charged with bringing the newly-launched RB13 into 2017.
Max Verstappen has confirmed that Red Bull will race a different RB13 in Australia but says it is only a “little bit different” to the car they tested.
Daniel Ricciardo has applauded the decision to relax the ‘Verstappen rule’, saying the drivers can “sort it out on track.”
Mercedes and Red Bull Racing were reportedly forced to change their suspension systems ahead of the Australian GP as they did not comply with the regulations.
