Red Bull has lifted the veil on its RB16B which will be driven this season by Max Verstappen and Sergio Pérez.
Max Verstappen will still be on board and will be supported by Mexican driver Sergio Pérez, who has moved from Racing Point. The young Thai driver Alexander Albon is therefore demoted to the rank of reserve and development driver.
In this capacity, the Thai rider has worked on the development of the single-seater during the winter and will continue to do so during the season, while preparing for the season of 2022. He would also be called upon to replace Verstappen and Pérez if they were to injure themselves or contract the Covid-19. The 24-year-old driver, who will also be racing in DTM, the German Touring Car Championship, has set himself the goal of finding a bucket in 2022, initially with Red Bull or its sister team Scuderia AlphaTauri.
Last season, Red Bull came second among the manufacturers, 254 points behind the Mercedes champion. Verstappen took two victories and signed 11 other podiums, when his former Thai team-mate Alexander Albon couldn’t do better than two third places.
As a cost-saving measure in the face of the coronavirus crisis, in 2021, the F1 cars are largely similar to those of 2020, except for a reduction in their aerodynamic support as provided for in the regulations. Consequently, the Red Bull RB16B is an evolution of last year’s RB16 and will still be powered by the Japanese Honda.
