Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has said that the team's RB19 philosophy may be present on the grid in 2024, as he expects a number of Formula 1 teams to copy the car that was so successful in 2023.
Horner is very much under the impression that a number of teams will likely come up with concepts that are very similar to that of the RB19, citing this for the reason why the Milton Keynes-based outfit need to progress in 2024.
“Evolution not revolution,” he said about his team's 2024 car.
“All areas have been revisited in the car, and we can't afford to have any complacency.
“So the car is very much an evolution of a theme. We're not reinventing the wheel, and that has been very much the route of the engineering path over the last 12 months.
“I'm fully expecting with stable regs and diminishing returns for us because I think we got to the top of the curve quicker than others, the field is going to converge,” he continued.
“There's always a reset as you go into the following year, and I'm convinced that you'll see a lot more cars that perhaps look like an RB19 philosophy.
“If you stand still in this business, you tend to be going backwards. And I think that we have got up that curve quicker than others. But we're into a law of diminishing returns.”
