The Visa Cash App RB squad come into the 2024 Formula1 season with a new name and a new look, but some familiar faces.
The curtain has fallen on the AlphaTauri era, and in its place stands a vibrant new entity: Visa Cash App RB. This bold rebranding signals the beginning of a new era with fresh ambitions and a hunger for success independent of Red Bull's works team.
Laurent Mekies, the newly appointed team principal, leads this exciting new chapter, succeeding Franz Tost who retired at the end of the 2023 season after 18 years with the team.
A seasoned veteran of the sport, Mekies draws upon his previous roles as Ferrari's deputy team principal and racing director. Having spent some time with AlphaTauri as chief engineer, he now returns to the Faenza, ready to reignite the passion within the underdog outfit.
On the track, the dynamic duo of Daniel Ricciardo and Yuki Tsunoda takes the reins. The pair helped the team propel one position higher in the constructors' championship in 2023, culminating in an eighth-place finish with 25 points.
With Mekies' guidance and this talented pair behind the wheel, the VCARB team set their sights firmly on climbing the ranks once again in 2024.
