Verstappen: RB19 is “definitely” an improvement over 2022

Verstappen happy with new red bull

Max Verstappen, Red Bull Formula 1 driver, is happy with improved RB19. He claims that the new car is better than its predecessor. Additionally, he claims more performance is “in the pipeline” for its new RB19.

The preseason testing in Bahrain showed promising performance of the RB19 with few issues. However, Verstappen lost the time on Friday raising concerns.

The world champion took the day to himself on Thursday in the new car. His team mate, Sergio Perez, shared the ride with him on Friday. Later, Mexican run the car solely on Saturday.

“I think the car is working really well,” said Verstappen. “Just going through a lot of things that we wanted to try, and everything is very interesting, what we have been trying.

“So very positive days for me. And just in general enjoying driving the car.”

Verstappen felt the changes while driving compared with the RB18.

“There are quite a few differences in the cars,” he said. “So it definitely drives a bit different. I think that’s also a bit related to the tyres. But overall, I think it’s definitely an improvement from last year.

“The main issue we had last year is that the car was massively overweight. So, in the beginning, the car was just very lazy – it was not turning in, because the weight was also in the wrong place on the car.

“And throughout the year we got rid of that, and you could see the performance of course was increasing a lot and it became more of a race car.

“And this year, just a continuation, but also things that we found and put on the car that were clearly better. And yeah, we already have things in the pipeline coming, and just work in progress. But we know what our limitations are – and we work around this.”

He added about his confidence for the Shakir GP: “It’s not only about confidence, it’s just about actually putting the performance down.

“I think we had really positive test days and we learned a lot, and hopefully we just start off the weekend well, and then we’ll see where we end up.”
