“RB16B…60 percent of the car is the 16”- Christian Horner warns further changes in 2021 car and drastic drop in resemblance.
F1 teams are now heading on for the new season and there are going to be new regulations stepping in, to spice up the performances on the track.
Christian Horner speaking up on it has claimed that there will be a considerable change in the upcoming Red Bull in comparison to the present 2020 car.
“I would say that of the RB16B…60 percent of the car is the 16,” he explained. “Like all cars, there is a large amount of carry-over of components for next year.

“We’ve got the basis of a decent car. I think we know where its weaknesses have been compared to our opponents, so that’s where we’re focusing our development over the winter.
“Mercedes will have an extremely strong package next year; there’s no doubt about that. But we’ve just got to use all the information and tools and data that we have to do the best job that we can.”
Present predicaments will vanish
This year’s Red Bull faced difficulty in aerodynamics, which definitely kept Mercedes ahead in the order of the fastest cars on the grid, but Horner has promised that things will be better in the following year product.
“I think a lot of the chassis stays the same, the suspension elements obviously stay the same, and gearbox is all carried over,” he said. “It’s basically the clothes that it’s wearing will be different, which is obviously the aerodynamic surfaces.
“And of course, we go into a budget cap world as well next year, so the ability to develop is a lot more focused. It’s going to be a new challenge, a different challenge next year, but I think we have the basis of a decent car.
“I think you can see that the car generally has got closer and closer to Mercedes over the last few couples of months in particular. That’s been really encouraging.”
