The Red Bull Racing team has recently launched its latest Formula One car, the RB19, in New York City. Despite the high expectations and excitement among F1 fans, the car’s livery turned out to be a disappointment as it is almost identical to the RB18, the team’s victorious car from 2022.
Team Principal Christian Horner spoke about the car, explaining that it draws on the strengths of the RB18 and that the changes made to the RB19 are primarily aerodynamic in nature. He stated that the team had faced some difficulties in optimizing these subtle changes.
At the launch event, drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez saw the RB19 for the first time. Even two-time champion Verstappen commented on the unchanged livery, which features a deep blue base with yellow and red accents and the Red Bull logo prominently displayed on the front wing and nose.
The next major F1 event to keep an eye out for is the launch of the Williams 2023 car, set to take place on Monday, February 6th.
