Red Bull RB14 Speculation Thread

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Nice. Anything on 2019 engine supply and Honda in general?
Regarding Honda, here are Marko's comments:
# we are surprised in a positive way, Honda is very much commited
# there are some difficulties like language barrier and the distance (Sakura is 1 hour away from Tokio)
# Honda has learnt from their mistakes, which happened without a doubt
# dyno runs have shown that the PU is reliable
# he thinks it is possible that the Honda-PU can have the same performance level (as the Renault) by mid-season

# and he also mentioned Porsche: there are no plans in the shortterm for Porsche, to enter the sport

After all, the signals coming from the Renault drive factory in Viry are positive. "If the engine does what we're promised, then we should be a lot closer to Mercedes, and meanwhile, we've also done a test-bench run with the entire car, which has gone well so far."
Ugh i hate it when Renault and promises are used together. All they can promise is a lap time gain, not how much the gap to the leaders will change

Its mentioned litteraly 2 lines above ...

My guess is we will see a RB13 with a more complex bargeboard area, and a halo.
The RB's has looked very similar the last decade

Waiting

From the logo used in the build up to this, does anybody think they will change the livery significantly?
