Red Bull driver Max Verstappen has moved to temper expectations surrounding the RB19 upgrades, following previous comments from Helmut Marko.
So far, 2023 has been a dominant campaign for the Austrian team and Verstappen's win in Monaco extended their 100 per cent winning record this season after six races.
Verstappen is seeking a third straight world title and is already looking well on course with just over a quarter of the season completed.
Perhaps frighteningly for the rest of the field, their car will have upgrades in Barcelona for the upcoming Spanish Grand Prix at Catalunya.
Speaking to Austrian TV channel OE24, Marko said his team would "try something new" in what almost sounded like an ominous warning to the rest of the field.
However, Verstappen says everything will be standard in Spain, telling reporters: "I think Helmut got a bit excited! I don't know, we'll just be doing our normal program and nothing crazy," Verstappen responded.
