A few days back, there was a piece of news that said that major upgrades are in tow for the team running in third on the constructor standings for 2019, at this point in time. It was being said and deliberated that Red Bull would benefit greatly from the power upgrades that were being planned for the Christian Horner-led outfit starting the Spanish GP of 2019.
And now, there is this news concerning Red Bull that perhaps states something rather different. It is being believed that Red Bull have planned ‘subtle’ upgrades for the contest that’s only a few days away.
The start of the European leg of the 2019 F1 season is believed to be an interesting part of the contest so far clinched by Mercedes right from the word go.
To this point in time, Red Bull have managed 1 podium finish thanks to Max Verstappen‘s P3 at Australian GP. That’s not all? What’s been rather impressive is the fact that the other Red Bull of Pierre Gasly too, has stamped its authority on the season.
In setting the fastest lap at China, Pierre Gasly in his Red Bull drove home an extra point and that too in F1’s 1000th Grand Prix contest.
Now, in the words of the team boss Horner, there has been a tonnage of improvements that have helped up the team’s game a bit.
The mild-mannered team boss shared the following observations on Red Bull and its upgrades, “It will be the usual front and rear wing upgrades. It’s evolution rather than revolution.” The developments, Horner shared were focused on “different aspects of balance, on degradation and all of those things”.
And that’s not all. He would add, “Bahrain was a tough race for us but it exposed some things that we’ve managed to improve on since then. China was a stronger race, and [Azerbaijan] even more so – and on a track that doesn’t historically play to our strengths.
“We’re looking forward to heading back to Europe now and we have a few circuits coming up now that should really suit us.”
