Red Bull’s brand slogan is that “it gives you wings”. It certainly did it in Formula 1 with its engine company. Honda, in fact, comes from a couple of seasons of underperformances that led to a line of doubts about their capacity to come back in Formula 1 as it did in the past. McLaren was the team that have brought the Japanese company down with itself because it was used to put the blame on the engine for an unreliable car but things worked out differently in the end.
After a tumultuous divorce from the English team, Honda started a brand new sponsorship with Red Bull. At first with its B –Team, Toro Rosso and the next year with the official brand.
Honda came back stronger than ever. From time to time, the Japanese engine improved constantly and it gained some efficiency and re-gained trust and honour. It is a matter of fact that Red Bull had a satisfying 2019 and it publicly thanked Honda for that.
This improvement though, had put a spotlight on Red Bull. The team from Milton Keynes is beginning to feel the pressure of being the one and only responsible for its own performances.
“We have fulfilled every goal we had in 2019- Helmut Marko says- now that Honda is strong and reliable we can only blame ourselves for any problem that may come. Said in plain English, we have no more excuses.”
This means that Red Bull has to work harder than ever to present a nearly- perfect chassis. The team is one of the three contestants that can long for the title and it has to show its full talent as it did in the Austrian Gp in 2019. What are 2020 goals?“We can win more than 5 races”- Marko declares. https://motorlat.com/notas/f1/14368/helmut-marko-carlos-sainz-is-fast-but-he-is-not-max-verstappen#.Xigrml5uJeU.
