Max Verstappen and Red Bull would be hoping that the new RB15 could help Red Bull close the gap at the top of the constructor’s championship.
Red Bull have struggled with power and reliability issues in the last few years. However, the shift from Renault to Honda is supposed to sort out all Red Bull issues and put them in contention for a title.
Red Bull have launched a special edition livery for Barcelona testing. The Barcelona test is going to be a major event for Red Bull because they will get to test the real power and reliability of the Honda engine.

The Silverstone first run went according to plan for Red Bull, but a video has surfaced on social media, one that is causing quite a stir in the F1 fraternity.
The video shows Verstappen speaking to his team and apparently telling them that there was no power when he was going all out on the throttle.
Check out the video:

Now, Verstappen does seem relaxed after the conversation, so one can’t really conclude if Honda is already struggling to provide Red Bull with good enough power.
Honda are going to be under a lot of scrutiny this season and Red Bull would be hoping that they can stay away from any ‘massive’ blunders.
What do you make of the video?
