Hamilton: We don’t copy Red Bull

Car finance & F1 fans across the globe will be wondering how McLaren and Ferrari have caught up to the speed of Red Bull, and while many will think it’s due to the team’s realising what they were doing wrong, there are some who have hinted they have been copying Red Bull’s design.

Lewis Hamilton strongly refutes these comments when he spoke to German newspaper Bild am Sonntag.

"Apparently we and Ferrari have copied the Red Bull, but that's not true," said the ’08 world champion.

"We really haven't changed very much on the car. Sometimes it's just the little things that bring 0.007 of a second or something.

"But those tiny time savings are important in a sport where a tenth of a second is huge," he added.
