Red Bull has the fastest car on the grid this season. It is not surprising at all. They have been the fastest for the last three years. Moreover, the hegemony they enjoyed does not seem to end anytime soon. Like Mercedes enjoyed their dominance for eight years in a row, the Austrian outfit seems to continue their dominance until the introduction of the new regulations in 2026. In 2022, the Milton Keynes outfit presented the RB18 car that went on to win 17 races. But last year, the RB19 car proved to be even better than its predecessor. Now, the fans wonder if RB20 can perform even better than RB19. Red Bull has already won the first two races of the 2024 season.

Moreover, they had two back-to-back one-two finishes in Bahrain and Jeddah. Clearly, the Austrian team’s car is the fastest on the grid again. Previously, when the Milton Keynes team launched their 2024 challenger, there were controversies about the sidepod design. Some said it is a copy of the Mercedes W14. However, after the first two races, the car performed pretty well. That’s what the team is trying to focus on right now. Lately, Mobil 1 announced that the team wanted to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their partner Mobil 1 engine oil. In one of the following races, the Austrian team will have a specially designed livery.

The Austrian team will swap their familiar livery at one Grand Prix in the ongoing season. They will have a specially designed livery, but nobody knows at which race. Red Bull generally uses the same familiar livery. It has been going on for several seasons. Occasionally, they have used a special livery. For instance, last year saw the Milton Keynes outfit use specially designed livery during the three races in the United States of America. They used a custom livery that some fans designed. Red Bull chose these fans via a competition run.

However, it is not the Red Bull Racing team in F1 alone that uses custom livery to honor Mobil 1. There are different teams in different motorsport series who will also use different livery. Moreover, Renger van der Zande and Scott Dixon’s Cadillac team raced with a gold livery at the 12 Hours of Sebring. There are several other teams that will honor Mobil 1. For instance, Stewart-Haas Racing and 23XI Racing in the NASCAR Cup Series and Red Bull KTM in MotoGP will participate in Mobil1’s action. There are many more teams looking to participate in Mobil 1’s action in Formula E, NHRA, WEC, and IMSA.

“The Christian Horner Show” Can Rip Milton Keynes Team Apart

Red Bull had no complaints about performance. The drivers are great, and the car is the best, thanks to Adrian Newey, the car designer, and Honda, the engine partner. When everything is going right for the Austrian team, it can be quite tragic if the team principal’s wrongdoing causes the team’s hegemony to drop to the ground. Moreover, the Milton Keynes team is trying their best to focus on performance.

However, it seems a lot of employees and engineers have turned against Horner after the parent company fired the female employee who accused the boss of “Inappropriate behavior.” Moreover, it seems Red Bull GmbH is ready to support Christian Horner all the way, even if it means letting Max Verstappen, Adrian Newey, and Helmut Marko go.
