What Red Bull needs to beat Mercedes in F1
By:

OPINION: Last weekend's Eifel GP was another case of close but no cigar for Red Bull as Max Verstappen again finished runner-up. But could Honda's imminent exit provide Red Bull with the unexpected impetus it needs to beat Mercedes?

For all the change that 2020 has brought to Formula 1, there seemingly remains one reliable constant. As has been the case in each of the last six years since F1's hybrid power units were introduced in 2014, Mercedes appears destined to win another title double, with Red Bull boss Christian Horner praising its "most complete and rounded car" yet after its eighth win from 10 races at the Russian Grand Prix.

Red Bull has been the only team capable of challenging the Black Arrows in 2020, and indeed remains one of only two teams (the other being the sister AlphaTauri squad in the freak Italian GP) to deny Mercedes a clean sweep this year.
