The Red Bull team confirmed that, according to many, the most dominant car of this year's F1 season will receive a package of innovations at the next race. The news was released by team advisor Helmut Marko, who told OE24: "We will try something new in Barcelona." It is not yet known what innovations we will see on the RB19 racing car, but there will be quite a few of them on other racing cars as well. Ferrari has already prepared a new rear wheel suspension for the race in Imola, but since the race was cancelled, they will use the innovation for the first time in Montmelo this weekend. Even at Mercedes, where they performed for the first time in Monaco with the new sides of the W14 racing car and the front suspension of the wheels, they will add some new parts in Spain, and the same is expected at Aston Martin.
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner believes Max Verstappen would have beaten team-mate Sergio Perez at the Miami Grand Prix even if he hadn't chosen the opposite tactic. The Dutchman, who started the race from ninth place, drove the first stint on the hard compound, and Perez on the medium hard. The Mexican intended to use the softer compound to lead the race and break away, and simulations suggested his tactics should be around three seconds faster than Verstappen's at the end of the race. But Verstappen lasted an incredible 46 laps on the hard tyres, setting a faster pace than Perez after his pit stop to put the car on hard tyres. The Dutchman chose the yellow-rimmed hard tires for his race-ending pit stop and easily overtook Perez. Horner

Sergio Perez explained that the crash in qualifying for the Australian Grand Prix, which he will start from the last place, is the result of unresolved problems with the brakes that appeared already in the third free practice. The Mexican lost 3 minutes of the final practice due to technical problems in FP20, which he finished more than half a second behind teammate Max Verstappen's time after two fast laps in which he had problems with locked wheels on braking. After qualifying, he explained that they were confident they had fixed the problems. "I was just a passenger in the race car when I started braking," he said. "There was nothing I could do but brake. Something is causing the braking ratio to shift to the front wheels. I just hope we can fix the problem before the race so I can minimize the damage." T
Red Bull is said to be very interested in the services of Briton Lando Norris, who according to some rumors could soon take over the role of Sergio Perez as Max Verstappen's teammate. In the team of the Austrian manufacturer of energy drinks, relations between the two racers are said to be becoming more and more tense, as Perez is not ready to give up the possibility of fighting for the title of world champion. Running a team with two hot-headed drivers can be difficult, something Red Bull is well aware of, and Verstappen and Norris, at least for now, have a very friendly relationship. Red Bull has offered Norris the opportunity to transfer several times, but the young Brit refused and promised his future to the McLaren team until the end of 2026. But the Woking team has completely lost touch with the best of the rest this year, which Norris would
Mexican Sergio Perez celebrated victory in the F1 race for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. He was joined on the podium by his Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen, who after technical problems in qualifying started the race from fifteenth place and made his way to second by the finish line, and Fernando Alonso, who took the lead after the start of the race and kept the lead for a few laps races. The Spaniard, who had to serve a 5-second penalty due to incorrect positioning on the grid, achieved the jubilee 100th podium finish in his career. Mercedes racers George Russell and Lewis Hamilton finished the race in the top five, while Ferrari racers Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc crossed the finish line behind them. The eighth and ninth places were occupied by the drivers of the Alpine team, Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly, the last point was p
Max Verstappen believes there will be no repeat of his dominant performance at the Bahrain Grand Prix this weekend, as the competition looked much closer at the start of the Formula 1 race weekend in Saudi Arabia. Although the Dutchman led in both practice sessions at the Jeddah circuit, he said early race simulations indicated the competition would be much closer this weekend. The Red Bull driver believes that the different nature of the track, particularly the fact that it is not as taxing on the tyres, allows Red Bull's rivals to pose a much greater threat. At the end of the day, Verstappen said: "We had a positive day, but there are still some things we can improve. We are closer to each other, but more because of the tire management. You can't really push here, so I think the lap times are very tied. So,
Max Verstappen was happy that he was not asked by the Red Bull team to slow down Charles Leclerc and thus allow Sergio Perez to catch and pass the Monaco, as he believes that it would not have been the right end to the season. While the Dutchman easily led the race from pole position and held the lead all the way to the finish line, behind him there was a nervous battle between Leclerc and Perez for second place among the drivers. Perez closed the gap on the Ferrari driver in the final laps thanks to a change in tactics, but eventually ran out of laps to try and overtake. Verstappen revealed after the race that he had not received any instructions from the team to help his teammate, which he believes would have tarnished the season finale. "I didn't get any instructions, but it's also a very ticklish subject," he said
