[流言板]韦伯深信前保时捷高管能拯救迈凯伦

虎扑2月9日讯 马克-韦伯相信前保时捷LMP1车队主管Andreas Seidl将会扭转迈凯伦的前途,韦伯在2005年与Seidl在威廉姆斯车队时就共事过,当时Seidl是宝马的一位工程师。他们随后在2014年起,在保时捷的LMP1项目中合作。

谈及这段经历时,韦伯相信Seidl能帮助挣扎的迈凯伦,“如果有人能作这个位置……他将是最好的人选。他是一个工作狂——技术方面非常非常深入,和人处的也很好。他显然是我合作过的人之中最好的。”

“我们2005年的时候就认识了,他当时是我威廉姆斯车队的工程师,为宝马引擎工作。他经常来赛道。他肯定对去迈凯伦激动坏了,但他知道他有很大的任务在前面。他在索伯-宝马车队,有过F1的经验。”

“他亲手构建了我们成功的919 LMP1赛车。不仅仅是他,当然那是一个大团队,但他无疑是那个过程中的涡轮增压器。我想他看到了展现能力的好机会。”

Even with Seidl at the helm, Webber does not expect McLaren to turn its form around immediately.

He said returning to the front of the F1 field “will take time” for McLaren, which has not won a race since the end of the 2012 season, and that a renewed focus on grand prix racing would be key to making that happen.

“For a lot of Ron [Dennis’] faults, that’s when they were at their best,” said Webber.

“When they were at their most harmonious, with the commercial model in place – you get your drivers and off you go.

“McLaren were a beast. Then they wanted to do road cars, then it’s like, ‘What are we doing here?’ Then it’s a bit of IndyCar, a bit of… you can’t do everything.

“It’s that laser focus. Every team that’s been successful in Formula 1, they’ve been focussing on one thing and recruiting well.”
