RB16 speculation

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.

Red Bull 'underestimated' Honda F1 engine progress with their chassis design

"We designed the car with too little downforce, we underestimated the progress of our new engine partner"

Just as Wazari stated in the beggining of 2019 season after Australian GP. Thanks @Wazari.
Thanks @IvailoStefanovBG for remind us.

Maybe consider this scenario; RB15 was initially designed anticipated kW from 619 of 618 kW + X kW increase. Actual kW of Spec 1 619 ended up with 618 kW + Y kW. Let's say Y is 130% of X. Maybe that might require some changes to optimize chassis for the actual new kW figures?
What will a higher downforce RB15 successor look like? What features might it gain or lose?

I think it might be a bit early for this thread...

Similar to the RB15, final year of a regulation set is not a good time to explore brand new ideas.

I'm sure the Mclaren 2013 season is still fresh on most people's minds.

It will be an evolution of the rb15 which was an evolution of the rb14. Except unlike Renault's evolution you can guarantee it will be faster. All of the new ideas will be going towards the rb17 and the new 2021 regulations.

It'll have a wing at each end, four wheels placed as pairs near to each end, an engine, fuel tank and battery. Oh, and a seat for a driver.

You can take that to the bank. =D>

Other than that, this thread is a little premature. :lol:

It's not like RBT didn't put their full effort into designing the car. The truth is that Merc was the only team that went for Max downforce even at the expense of efficiency. Red Bull did the same thing they do EVERY season. They designed in as much DF as they could but only above a certain level of efficiency, same as everyone else. Merc just had the foresight to allow DF at a slightly dirtier level, allowing them to achieve more DF overall.
