Red Bull is ready for a new season, with hopes of keeping their Championships

The team is motivated and ready to give their all, in pursuit of defending their titles and making history.

Red Bull has been through a rough patch over the past months. However, Perez believes they are headed for better seasons this year, as they did their best in the pre-season testing in Bahrain. 

Red Bull and Perez concluded the last week's pre-season with a time of 1 m 30.305s. Asked to comment on Red Bull's three days, Perez answered, “Yeah, I think they’ve been pretty intense. Testing is very short, so it’s very important to get the maximum out of it. It worked really well. “I think we got a good understanding of our car. We did a lot of analysis on set-up, and tires, so I think we did the most we could. We completed our programs on each day, so I’m pleased with that.” 

Perez reportedly admitted that he and teammate Max Verstappen are aiming for the same things with the new RB19 package. “I think the team has done a tremendous job. Back in Milton Keynes, all the factory has been working really hard over the winter. We’ve certainly got a good base car. I think we will only find out next weekend where we really are. I think on these days we don’t get to see the full picture. We want to be up there. It will be an important weekend, conditions are going to be a bit similar to what we just experienced tonight, so it will be great to start the season much stronger than we did last year.” 

Red Bull plans on keeping the championships this season (drivers’ and constructors’) and Verstappen has mentioned that the team is quite enthusiastic about it. “I think as a team you always learn, and you always try to do better than the years before... and I do think this year again the car really came nicely together,” the Dutchman told Sky Sports F1. Once we put it out on track, it was working well, we had a good balance, so that also shows that throughout the winter, all the preparation we were doing on the simulator was very accurate. I’m of course very happy with that, because that gives you a good base to work from on-track, but also back at the factory. The evolution of the car compared to last year seems to work very nicely, so everyone back at the factory did a very good job.”
