Author Topic: Max had exclusive aero upgrades to help F1 win in Austria  (Read 465 times)

New parts only for Max from Milton Keynes could also explain some of Gasly's deficit to his high flying teamate, according to Newey quoted on news outlets.
All I can say is Max took full advantage, so good teamwork all round.

Red Bull design chief Adrian Newey suggested that Max Verstappen's stunning qualifying performance at the Austrian Grand Prix may be down to a little-noticed upgrade on his RB15.

Verstappen's performance at the Red Bull Ring has come under increased scrutiny as the weekend has come with rumours of a potential exit swirling around him.

Red Bull design chief Adrian Newey suggested that Max Verstappen's stunning qualifying performance at the Austrian Grand Prix may be down to a little-noticed upgrade on his RB15.

Verstappen's performance at the Red Bull Ring has come under increased scrutiny as the weekend has come with rumours of a potential exit swirling around him.

Red Bull have been forced to confirm that performance-based exit clauses exist in Verstappen's deal Marca has reported that one could be activated if the Dutchman does not win one of the next four races.
Although Red Bull came to their home race pessimistic of repeating last year's victory for Verstappen, he qualified third-fastest and was promoted to P2 on the grid by Lewis Hamilton's penalty, with Charles Leclerc on pole.

Team-mate Pierre Gasly's miserable campaign went on as he could only go ninth-fastest, although it has emerged that there could be an explanation behind it.

Newey revealed that Verstappen's car features a raft of new parts, with a new front wing chief among them, and suggested that the gain in performance may be found in them.
"We have reviewed the upgrade from France again," Newey is quoted by Auto Motor und Sport.
"Take a good look at the car. All new parts are only on Max's car."

  • It doesn't surprise me. Red Bull and Gasly seem to have lost a certain level of trust in each other, alas.

  • The speed of his car was faster than Charles for sure but I put that down to tire degradation on Leclerc's car. Apparently not so.

  • Verstappen also had his engine on maximum power for half of the race, from what he said in his post-race comments. Red Bull aren't title candidates, and appear to have decided winning their home race was the next best thing. Ferrari are still hoping to somehow get that energy store to do 19 races in a row, so didn't give Leclerc the same clearance...
