Red Bull Racing 2023 Season Launch Recap
This week, we had the opportunity to witness the launch of the RB19, Red Bull Racing’s Formula 1 car for the upcoming 2023 season (well, kinda). The car was launched in New York City, and is the only F1 car set to be revealed in the US, a sign of both the raising popularity of the sport in the States, as well an opportunity to spotlight their just-announced engine partner from the 2025 season on, Ford Performance. 2023 will the second year of the new regulations, which saw a shuffling of the regular order of a prior generation, and catapulted Red Bull’s team to the top of the heap, where they brought home the World Constructor’s championship, as well as the World Driver’s championship, won by Max Verstappen.
Joining the team for the reveal were both drivers, Sergio Perez and Max Verstappen, as well as their newly announced reserve driver for the season, fan favorite, Daniel Ricciardo. All three were sporting the teams newly designed apparel, and there wasn’t much in the way of watch spotting, other than this TAG Heuer Monaco on the wrist of Verstappen. The car itself doesn’t appear all that different from last season’s car, but there are sure to be plenty of small aero updates in hopes of retaining their dominance over Ferrari and Mercedes teams who will look to be more competitive with a year of learnings from the new regulations under their belt.
Head over to the Red Bull Racing website to see more, as well as to learn more about an opportunity to design your own livery for the RB19 to be used at special races this season.
