Red Bull take inspiration from McLaren

According to German newspaper Bild, Red Bull Racing have been so impressed with Lewis Hamilton’s performance this season – performance which is partly creditted to the state-of-the-art driver simulator that McLaren have at their Woking headquarters – that they have decided to build their own F1 driver simulator.

It is understood that Adrian Newey, technical director at Red Bull, has given the nod for the simulator to go ahead.

Talking about Hamilton’s performances, Helmut Marko said, “He becomes so acquainted with the car on every circuit beforehand that he can slam in a quickest time on his second real lap.”
