It kinda started on Twitter when skysprtnewsf1 or whatever they are called on Twitter said “Stay tuned folks. We’re hearing some dramatic news about testing is about to be made public…” And then someone said Massa has been sacked and it snowballed
I don’t know, it sounds very interesting to me. It either means they had serious problems with their first design or, more likely, they have something that they NEED to test but is completely new and revolutionary. I look forward to tomorrow.
Red Bull are flying out a new chassis for the final two days in Barcelona armed with a series of high-profile and critical upgrades as the testing season goes into dramatic overdrive.
Sky Sports F1 understands that the World Champion’s aggressive new package will include a new rear wing, a new front wing and a heavily-revised exhaust.
The revisions are so extensive that the team have had to bolt them onto a new chassis after round-the-clock work at their Milton Keynes HQ. The ‘new car’ is being flown out overnight, with Team Principal Christian Horner and Chief Designer Adrian Newey, conspicuous by their absence at the Circuit de Catalunya on the opening two days of the third-and-final winter, also flying out from England.
I have so much respect and expectation of Red Bull nowadays that I expect them to come out with something really revolutionary on their car tomorrow which will shave half a second off their lap times. The reason that they would have wanted to keep it a secret until now was because they didn’t want to give the other teams so much time to study and copy it.
