In a recent discussion on the team's Talking Bulls podcast, Newey shed light on the expectations surrounding the upcoming RB20.
"Our car, it's very much a third evolution of the 22 car," he said,
"Last year's car was an evolution of '22 in its main points being of course, the normal winter development in terms of aerodynamics, some understanding on what we needed to do with suspension to try to improve the car as well, and getting weight out of it, because we never got down to the weight limit in '22.
"This year's car is the third evolution of that original RB18. What we don't know, of course, is the third evolution too conservative, while others have done something different? You just don't know."
