Red Bull Honda feels positive on simulator, says Max Verstappen

Check out Daniel Ricciardo's first Red Bull to launch new F1 car on same day as Mercedes

Max Verstappen says Red Bull's first Honda-powered Formula 1 vehicle "feels positive" on the simulator but is wary of drawing conclusions before driving the auto on-track. "Red Bull Technology have been working with Honda for 12 months now having supplied the gearbox and drivetrain solution for Toro Rosso".

However, Verstappen is not so sure the new Red Bull-Honda will be fast enough to beat Mercedes and Ferrari right from the beginning of the season.

"I have only driven the new vehicle in the simulator, which feels positive", said Verstappen after a launch event for a new clothing collection with fashion company G-Star RAW on Monday night. So we've seen behind the scenes their evolution and they're making good progress. It's also exciting, but that really only comes when I'm in the vehicle. Prior to that it is hard to know what to expect.

Mercedes and Red Bull are launching their new 2019 cars on the same day next week, February 13, as the sport's teams give a first glimpse of how they have interpreted the new aerodynamic rules for this year.

Daniel Ricciardo donned Renault overalls for the first time since deciding to leave Red Bull.

In an article posted on his personal website, Verstappen admitted that, while his impression of driving the new auto on Red Bull's sim had been "positive", he wanted to wait and see how both he and his rivals fared during winter testing before making any bold predictions for 2019. We all look forward to the new season.

Thailand's foreign ministry on Wednesday described the case as "involving two countries competing for Mr Hakeem's custody". The Gulf state issued a statement this week defending its decision to pursue Araibi after he fled while awaiting trial.

"I think they've had a strong winter", Horner said.

"But they're putting a lot of energy, time, and even money into that". You can see the drive to win.

"I believe it now works from both sides, from the team and the engine supplier".

He scored two victories along the way and said more wins are the target with Honda.

Horner said Red Bull aimed to be more consistent across all circuits this year, rather than just those where engine power was less of a factor. If that is the case, you can eventually also go for the championship.

"It is hard to judge, but I hope it will be positive. For the moment, we don't know how it will be on the track". "To continue to improve, this is the best situation that can happen to me", he said.
