This is a special regulation to off-set some of the revenue losses caused by the global pandemic. Accordingly, Red Bull Racing opted to their new-for-2021 racer the RB16B.

In the handful of images released of the RB16B ahead of the official test scheduled for March in Bahrain, it is clear that most of the available upgrade tokens were spent on revising the geometry of the rear suspension. As always, Red Bull Racing keeps their cards close to their chest, so further changes to the car expected before it takes part in the first official session.

Powering the RB16B is the latest evolution Honda's V6 hybrid engine. It is the final year that the Japanese company is the official engine supplier and as such, it has brought forward all upgrades that had originally been postponed to the 2022 season due to the corona pandemic. In record speed, the power unit has been further improved with the hope of making the final step up to performance level of the Mercedes-Benz engine.

For the 2021 season, driver Max Verstappen is joined by Checo Perez. The driving pairing first hit the track during the official three-day, pre-season test at Bahrain. The new RB16B was impressive, racking up as massive amount of laps and setting the fastest time.
