F1’s Max Verstappen ‘doesn’t care’ about new Red Bull look with forceful statement made

Max Verstappen has given his thoughts on Red Bull’s 2024 F1 car, saying the look of the vehicle isn’t important to him.

Max Verstappen, the world champion F1 driver for Red Bull, has brushed off criticisms of his team’s car design for the new season. The RB20’s unique side pods and engine cover have been the talk of the racing world, reminding some fans of Mercedes’ recent cars, but he “doesn’t care” about appearances.

“I fully trust what the people in our technical team are doing,” Verstappen confidently stated. “They are confident that this is better than everything else that they have tested in the wind tunnel over the winter. As long as it works, I don’t even care what the car looks like

The 26 year old Dutch racer also mentioned, “Well, at the time I wasn’t even too concerned with that to be honest, I saw the drawings and thought, ‘So, that looks nice’, but honestly I was thinking more about the upcoming holidays at the time. In the end, it doesn’t matter what the car looks like either. But what I do like a lot about the team is that they haven’t been conservative and that they have pushed the limits again by changing the concept.”

During the first day of testing, Verstappen showed incredible speed, leading by 1.1 seconds. While he took a break on the second day, his teammate Sergio Perez kept up the pace. On the third day, however, Red Bull faced tougher competition as Charles Leclerc, George Russell, and Zhou Guanyu all posted faster times than Verstappen.
