Formula 1: Red Bull plans cause confusion – is a hammer looming?

New car, new team clothing and new location – with the announcement that the car presentation will be held in New York this year, Red Bull caused a big surprise and fueled speculation about a possible Formula 1 hammer.

The RB19 will be unveiled in New York on February 3, well ahead of the competition. The choice of location is unusual and could be the first sign of a big announcement.

Formula 1: Does Red Bull surprise?

Usually the teams present their car in their own factory. In 2022, the RB racer was still presented in Milton Keynes, now the Brause racing team is suddenly drawn to New York – and much earlier than usual. The car is to be presented 20 days before the winter tests. It is unlikely that Red Bull will present the final car there. Presumably only the new paintwork will be visible – also because otherwise Red Bull would have to cart all the parts to New York.

In addition to the car, the focus of the world champion team is probably also on the presentation of new team clothing and sponsors. According to the “motorsport-magazin.com” portal, it could even be a little more. Accordingly, there should be revelations for the 2026 season.

New engine partner for Red Bull?

The question is still open at Red Bull: Who will be the engine partner from 2026? For the next three years, Red Bull will build the engine itself, but after that the question is still completely open. A deal with Porsche fell through last summer, and now the next possible candidate is being traded.


More news:


The location of the presentation could be a first clue. The US market is becoming increasingly important for Formula 1, and car manufacturers are paying attention again. According to the report, one of them should also be Ford. The US car giant is also associated with a possible entry into Red Bull.
