2021 Red Bull to be RB16 'in different clothes' - Horner
Red Bull team principal Christian Horner believes the aerodynamic changes for 2021 will mean the team will run an iteration of the RB16 where he claims it will effectively be the same car just 'wearing different clothes'.
The FIA stripped back on aerodynamic development for next season ahead of the introduction of new regulations for 2022 in order to save costs.
Horner explained that whilst the skeleton of the cars will remain unchanged for the most part, certain alterations will be visible on the exterior, which has already led to the team naming the car the RB16b.
"I think the chassis stays the same, suspension elements stay the same, gearboxes carry over," he said.
"It is the clothes that it is wearing will be different, which is obviously the aerodynamic surfaces. We go into a budget cap world next year so the ability to develop is a lot more focused.
