Verstappen, Red Bull assert dominance in 2024 F1 pre-season testing

Posted : 24 February 2024

The upcoming 2024 Formula 1 season seems to echo the dominance of Max Verstappen and Red Bull, reminiscent of the previous season's conclusion. The pre-season testing in Bahrain showcased Verstappen's prowess, piloting the remarkable RB20 car, asserting Red Bull's position at the forefront of the field.


While conventional wisdom suggests caution in interpreting test times due to various variables, the performance disparities were evident. Notably, Verstappen's rivals didn't downplay the situation, acknowledging Red Bull's continued superiority.


Despite Charles Leclerc's Ferrari topping the final day's timesheet, a closer look revealed that he, along with George Russell and Zhou Guanyu, used softer tires to outpace Verstappen, who opted for the harder compound.


Verstappen's consistent and effortless pace during testing, particularly in race simulations, indicated the Red Bull's stability and speed. Rival drivers and teams acknowledged Red Bull's lead, with Leclerc stating, "Red Bull remains in front," and Lewis Hamilton recognizing Red Bull's distant lead.


The pre-season testing affirmed that while several teams, including Ferrari, Mercedes, and Aston Martin, have made strides since the previous year, Red Bull has taken a significant step forward, maintaining its status as the frontrunner. Verstappen's formidable performance during simulated race stints left rivals in awe, solidifying the perception that Red Bull is well-positioned for the upcoming season.
