The best quotes:
“The new RB19 builds on the strengths of our previous world champion car. We incorporated everything we learned from the RB18.”
“We did really well in 2022. So, there’s no reason to mess with the car too much. But it is harder to stay world champion than to become world champion.”
“Our opponents keep getting stronger. We need to be even better in 2023 than in 2022—and that is very difficult.”
The new collaboration with Ford
The US auto manufacturer is partnering with Red Bull Powertrains and will supply both Oracle Red Bull Racing and Scuderia AlphaTauri from 2026 until at least 2030. The company is immediately starting work on development of a new power unit, including a 350 kW electric engine.
