To avoid an inauspicious start to the 2018 Formula One season, Team Red Bull Racing has taken the bold step of developing their new model cars in advance, according to Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo.
More recently, Red Bull have been known to delay in new car development to allow for proper vehicle acclimatization by drivers. This has however led to poor race performances and falling behind during the season proper, even though Red Bull is said to have the best undercarriage for its cars in the whole F1 community.
To Kickstart Red Bull
This new move by the racing giants is going to help them start the 2018 season much stronger according to another Red Bull driver Max Verstappen. “Our recent records have been unsatisfactory though I do not think any member of this great racing team is to blame for this,” he said. “We tend to finish strong, but there is no harm in trying to start a lot better than we have done in the past” he added.
Verstappen also believes such a move will give them a much-needed edge over rivals Team Mercedes-Benz and a boost in confidence going into the 2018 season. He also noted that the dominance of the afore-mentioned Mercedes-Benz had to stop and that Red Bull was the likeliest team to stop them. “Our current standing gives an indication of how competitive we are, hopefully in 2018 we will be winners”, he concluded.
