UNITED KINGDOM: F1 powerhouse Red Bull Racing’s exceptional performance in the 2023 season is not solely an attribute of their highly-discussed suspension design, according to renowned F1 commentator Peter Windsor.

Windsor asserts that the team’s aerodynamically efficient car, crafted under the guidance of legendary chief technical officer Adrian Newey, is the true secret behind their success.

Red Bull has been unstoppable this season, achieving a perfect start with Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez clinching victories in all five opening races.

Red Bull’s dominance has propelled them to the top of the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championship standings, with Verstappen leading the pack, closely followed by Perez.

The team’s revolutionary suspension design, often called a “trick” suspension, has been widely credited for the RB19’s remarkable speed.

This innovative system minimises dive under braking and squat during acceleration, enabling the car to maintain a lower ride height and maximise downforce.

As underbody performance plays a crucial role in a car’s speed, this design allows Red Bull to run with less rear wing, resulting in impressive straight-line performance.

However, Windsor emphasises that the suspension trick is merely a part of Red Bull’s overall success. He believes that the team’s aerodynamically efficient car, developed by Newey and his aero team, is crucial.

The car’s platform, built around precise aerodynamic parameters, offers superior efficiency compared to rival teams.

Windsor praised the team’s structure and ability to coordinate various departments, including packaging, suspension, battery, and power unit, to complement Newey’s vision flawlessly.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner also expressed surprise at the lack of progress from their rivals.

Horner questioned the performance of Ferrari and Mercedes, stating that he was wondering where the others were in terms of development. He adds that the teams are working hard on significant upgrades for Europe.

As the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix approaches at Imola, the racing world awaits to see if Red Bull’s dominance will continue and if rival teams can catch up.

The success of the RB19 serves as a testament to the meticulous design and efficient structure of the Red Bull team, providing them with a formidable advantage on the track.
