Sergio Perez will start the Miami Grand Prix from the best starting position after qualifying was cut short due to Charles Leclerc's crash. The Ferrari driver made a mistake on the final fast lap and crashed into the spare tires, causing the final part of qualifying to be red-flagged and not resumed. The man from Monaco was not injured, but he will start the race from seventh place. https://twitter.com/F1/status/1654955058172141570 Fernando Alonso entered the first starting row, and Kevin Magnussen was an excellent fourth, who will still have to be heard by the commissioner after qualifying due to the incident with Lewis Hamilton in Q1. The Dane is not completely safe in fourth place, as a penalty could follow. https://twitter.com/F1/status/1654962626194034691 Third time went to Car
Australian Daniel Ricciardo says he is not interested in competing in this year's F1 season. Ricciardo, 33, decided to take a break from full-time racing at the end of last season after spending two grueling seasons at McLaren. There, he managed to win the Italian Grand Prix in 2021, but otherwise he failed to keep pace with teammate Lando Norris. The Australian decided to retire, but at the same time did not want to close the door to a possible return in 2024, so he returned to the Red Bull Racing team, where he will perform the role of the third driver. This includes working in marketing, but at the same time he will turn the wheel in a simulator, and exceptionally he could do occasional testing with a real racing car. Ricciardo is being offered many other opportunities to compete in races outside of F1, but says he wants a mental o
In the middle of October last year, the Red Bull Racing team rented the Enzo and Dino Ferrari race track in Imola, where they filmed promotional material with current two-time world champion Max Verstappen. But the circuit manager will have to pay a portion of the earnings to the local authority, as Verstappen was driving Red Bull's 09 RB2013 car, which with its screaming eight-cylinder engine exceeded legal noise levels. The authorities sent a claim to the racetrack for payment of a fine of 500 euros, and the recording day was, despite many racing events, the only one in the entire year when the measured noise values were higher than the permitted ones. https://www.youtube.com/shorts/RiWYGKUlCOk
World champions Red Bull Racing will unveil their 1 F2023 car in early February, and to mark the occasion, the team will be decked out in special new livery. The RB19 will be unveiled on February 3rd and will make its first track appearance 22 days later on February 25th, when three days of testing begin in Bahrain. https://twitter.com/redbullracing/status/1613929207029202944 World champion Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez will represent the team again this year.
Red Bull Racing has reached a plea agreement with the FIA for going over the budget limit for the 2021 season. The Milton Keynes-based team accepted the blame for going over the budget by $2,2 million, although the FIA admitted that with proper tax accounting the overdraft amounted to just under 0,5 million dollars, or 0,37%. The current constructors' champions will pay a $7 million penalty for the violation, and they will have 2023% less time than their rivals when developing the racing car for the 10 season. The penalty that the team will pay does not fall under this year's budget, so they will feel all the more the limitation of the development of the racing car in the wind tunnel and with computer simulations, where they will have 10 percent less time at their disposal for the next 10 months, when
The International Automobile Federation FIA has postponed the publication of data on the teams' budgets for 2021 to Monday, as it is, according to them, a lengthy and complicated process. Before the race for the Singapore Grand Prix, the public was excited by the rumor that the Red Bull and Aston Martin teams exceeded the 145 million budget cap last year. In particular, they were upset as expected in the camp of the Mercedes team, where they demanded that the FIA take action and use the harshest possible punishment - the deletion of points for teams and racers. This could theoretically make Lewis Hamilton the champion of the 2021 season, while on the other hand, Red Bull and Aston Martin were surprised by the rumours, as the budget review process had not yet been completed. In the team from Milton Keynes, they even announced lawsuits against Mercedes and Ferrari, if n
Max Verstappen narrowly avoided engine failure and retirement at the Hungarian Grand Prix. The Dutchman encountered a power unit problem in the final part of qualifying, so he failed to set a competitive time and started the race in tenth place. Before the race, Red Bull's mechanics changed the power unit and a few other components, but after the change, he did not have to serve a penalty, since he had not yet exceeded the specified number of components used, and also thanks to the new rule that the team bosses decided on the previous month, he could start the race after the change under the parc ferme from the starting row, instead of from the garages. The reigning world champion thus used the third and thus last power unit of the year and won the race, increasing his advantage in the championship classification to 80 points over Charle
Max Verstappen had to settle for second place in his Red Bull Racing team's home race in Sunday's race, where he could not find an answer to the fast pace of the Ferrari racers. The Dutchman easily won the sprint race on Friday, but the RB18's form disappeared by Sunday due to excessive tire wear. "We didn't send the best racing car to the track in Austria, which had problems with tires," he explained, adding that he doesn't expect any problems in France, where high tire wear is expected. "We have a little better understanding of what happened in Spielberg, so I expect us to be more competitive this time."
Red Bull Racing boss Christian Horner claims that the respect between his racer Max Verstappn and his Ferrari rival, Charles Leclerc, is genuine. Leclerc and Verstappen have known each other since the days of go-kart racing, where they were great rivals, just like this season. The Monaco and the Dutchman shared two victories in this year's four races, and practically in each of them they also fought on the track. But unlike last season, when Verstappen was caught in a duel with Lewis Hamilton, this time neither on the track nor off it, there are no conflicts between the rivals. “They grew up together and raced in karting, so they know each other very well,” Horner explained. "They come from the same generation and there is genuine respect between them."
Red Bull have already revealed the reason for the resignation of both of their racers at the Bahrain race. After suspecting that it was a malfunction of the fuel pumps, they now found out that it was another problem with the fuel supply. Helmut Marko, a Red Bull consultant, told German colleagues at Auto Bild Motorsport: "To present in an easy way. The vacuum in the fuel supply system has led to the engine running out of fuel. I think we can solve this problem already for the racing weekend of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. " The Austrian categorically denies speculations that Red Bull did not fill the car with enough fuel and that Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez resigned just before the end of the race. "Without giving exact numbers, I can say that there was still enough fuel in both race cars." Tod
