According to team principal Christian Horner, about 60 percent of the car designed by Adrian Newey remains the same compared to last season, when Verstappen won two races and finished third in the World Cup standings. 2021 is also the last year of engine supplier Honda, which will supply the power unit to Red Bull and sister team AlphaTauri. The Japanese have announced that the initial 2022 engine has already been developed for this year. After this season, Red Bull will take over the engines in-house.
Compared to last year’s car, the Aston Martin logo on the rear wing has disappeared. That brand now has its ‘own team’ and has disappeared as title sponsor. Instead, Honda also stands big on the rear wing.
Verstappen and Pérez are in England this week and will also test their new car on Wednesday during a film day. The RB16B may then travel a maximum of 100 kilometers. Pérez is already driving the RB15, the car of 2019, on Tuesday to make some flying hours.

The first Grand Prix of 2021 awaits in Bahrain on March 28. Two weeks earlier are three days of testing on the same circuit. Pérez replaces Alexander Albon at Red Bull, who has now taken on the role of test and reserve driver. For the experienced Mexican (31) it will be his eleventh season in Formula 1. The eight years younger Verstappen will start his seventh season in the premier class.
