Nevertheless, Red Bull can draw hope. First, Mercedes has to expand the DAS (Dual Axis Steering) system. This enabled the drivers to adjust the track of the wheels by pulling and pushing on the steering wheel, thus bringing the tires up to temperature. But the system will be banned in 2021. It does not correspond to the spirit of the regulations.

Honda and Pérez as a success factor?
There is also great hope in the new Honda engine. The Japanese want to say goodbye to Formula 1 in style. For the last season, they put a new 1.6-liter V6 turbo hybrid on keel – which Red Bull will be using on its own from 2022. With the new engine, the horsepower gap to Mercedes should be closed. The new Honda engine also appears to be more compact – the rear section of the RB16B is much slimmer than it was in 2020.
