Red Bull Racing F1 Team launches RB9

Red Bull Racing today unveiled the sixth new F1 car to be see this week, the eagerly awaited RB9. The car was unveiled at the team’s Milton Keynes base in front of an audience comprising team members, partners, international media and competition winners but atypically for this season so far no live viewing on the web for fans at large. This was a strange and no doubt unpopular decision by Red Bull a team that prides itself on marketing and the involvement of its supporters.

Anyway on to the event and the car was unveiled by longstanding driver pairing Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber. The RB9 was resplendent in a purplish blue hue and still featured a stepped nose. Technical Director Adrian Newey described the new car as an evolutionary design in line with other launches this week and again cited the stability of the regulations as the key factor in this decision. The RB9 was described as the final instalment in a generation of designs that has so far delivered 34 Grand Prix wins and six World Championships.

 

Newey said that the team had been extremely busy and paid tribuute to the team’s hard work over the winter following an intense championship battle in 2012 in which they had to focus on both the development of last years car while also doing research on the upcoming RB9. This issue is certain to resurface in 2013 with a much bigger impact given the sweeping changes in the regulations for 2014.

 

Again in line with comments from other teams, Newey quoted the new Pirelli tyres as the most significant change since last year and said that although the teams were given some visibility of the new rubber in practice for the Brazilian Grand Prix weather conditions at the time meant that they didn’t learn a lot. He went on to say that Pirelli has supplied data about how the new tyres behave but that past experience dictates that it’s only when testing begins that the team will really find out.

 

Tonight sees the team depart for Jerez and the first F1 test session of the new season where Mark Webber will give the RB9 its first track outing on Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th of February with Sebastian Vettel taking over on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th. 03022013

Buemi confirmed that his main aim is to be a full time race driver but that he is learning all the time from his work with the team. Red Bull Team principal Christian Horner said ‘We’re pleased that Sebastian has continued as reserve and test driver for the coming season. He joined the Red Bull Junior Team in 2004 and has worked with Red Bull Racing in 2008 and 2012 and has significant race experience.
