Red Bull showed the first photos of the new car for the upcoming F1 season. The designation of the car is RB16B, and the proof that the car is an evolution of last year is the name of the car itself.
Red Bull is a team that occasionally had the opportunity to challenge Mercedes during the previous year, so it is logical that a lot is expected of them this year as well. The suffix B was added to the RB16 car and thus the designation RB16B was obtained, which means that a large part of the components are inherited from last year’s model. The head of the team, Christian Horner, explained that almost 60% of the parts were transferred from last year’s car. During the previous year, Max Verstappen and Alex Albon struggled mostly with the balance of the car, so the main field for improvement is the balance, and the new car has the task of being competitive on all types of tracks that await us in the calendar. As they take over the development of the unit from Honda, after Honda leaves the championship that will follow at the end of the season, the team is expected to be fully committed to the development of technology. However, precisely because of that, the question remains how much they will be able to hire and how much they will dedicate to this season, especially when we take into account the big change of rules that awaits us.
As they say in the team, they had a clear picture of where the fields that need to be repaired are, so that’s where most of the work was done. In addition to the new components, we also have a new driver lineup. Max stayed at Red Bull, while Albon lost his driver’s seat and will be replaced by Perez, who lost his place to Vettel at Racing Point, now Aston Martin. Certainly, this is a very interesting setting, so Perez is expected to, in addition to being better than Albon, “make” Max be better in the fight with Mercedes above all, and the focus is on winning the title in the team championship.
