WHat to expect this F1 Season: Red Bull

The 2024 season is expected to be exciting, as each team strives to close the gap with Red Bull in the coming year. Ahead of the start of the season, we are breaking down what you can expect from the teams.

Today, we will look at the reigning champions, Red Bull. 

Red Bull’s success in 2023 is undeniable. The Milton Keynes-based team won 21 of the 22 races and shattered many records along the way. The team reigned champions in both the Drivers and Constructors Championships. The team returns in 2024 with the same driver lineup.

The Drivers

Max Verstappen: 19 of the 22 races, third on the all-time wins list with 54 at just 26 years old. The Dutchman earned an astounding 575 points, breaking many records along the way. With 19 race wins this year, he set the record for most wins in a season, set the record for the most podiums with 21 in total, and notably became the first driver to lead over 1,000 laps in Formula One history. With his contract set until 2028, it is safe to predict that, with Red Bull, Verstappen is set to break even more records.

Sergio Perez: After a hard-fought season, Sergio “Checo” Perez finished second in the constructors with a total of 285 points. He will be returning to the team in 2024, which will complete his current contract with the team. The Mexican won a total of two races in 2023 and seven podiums.

Reserve Driver: At the time of writing, there has been no confirmation for the 2024 reserve driver.

Team Principal

Christain Horner: Horner will return in 2024 as team principal. Horner has been with Red Bull Racing since its inception in 2005. He has seen the team through six Constructors’ championships and seven Drivers’ championships.
