Why Red Bull will have a unique F1 engine advantage

Red Bull's F1 engine plans are gathering pace, including a batch of appointments from Mercedes, as it bids to take on the might of the three-pointed star with its new powertrains division when Honda leaves at the end of 2021. With how seriously Red Bull is taking this project, and the amount of investment it is prepared to make, it's set to end up with a unique position even compared to the fully-fledged manufacturers who have their own teams, as Edd Straw explains

They might become an engine manfr but they are still a drinks company. Racing in F1 is about passion, history and cars. RB just have a tiny slice of history.

I think it's great that a company like Red Bull can come along and shake things up like this. It should be a big wake up call for Mercedes and Ferrari to stop looking down their noses at everyone else... You don't need to be making cars for 70+ years to be competitive, you just need to hire the best people and give them the space to do great things...

I love the ambition of Redbull and Honda. Honda bowing out after this year but going balls to the wall to leave a legacy behind to help Redbull kick off their own engine development.

This is what we call a "pro-gamer move", nice 👍 Doing essential stuff yourself is always better, if possible. Good luck, I really hope it will work out and Red Bull will become a tier 1 engine manufacturer, right beside Toyota and Honda. Sending ripples throughout F1 already, maybe it will become an actual sport again - instead of bullshit, politics and drama. Limiting the budgets is a good start, long overdue. Would be amazing to be able to buy a normal car with a Red Bull engine in it at some point, just imagine that...

It's worrying, the amount that they spend on this isn't to keep pace with Mercedes; It's to dominate the sport. Mark my words. In 5 years we're gonna be tired of Red Bull 1-2 finishes and Max will be Luckstappen or some bs like that. Hopefully Williams and Haas will pick up their pace. Sorry, Williams and *Uralkali Rich Energy Racing* will pick up the pace.

Nothing unique at all about what Redbull have going. There is nothing stopping Mercedes or Alpine or Ferrari from doing exactly the same thing if they choose to. Good try. Complete fail. Wow. You can try and spin it any way you wish but the writing is on the wall.

RedBull sells 7.5 billion cans annually. That's like at the very least 20 billion in revenue. They have the money just from cans nevermind their other endeavors. They can easily afford to dump a billion into their F1 teams.

I went to Monza in 2015 & 2016. Everyone was cooing over the sound of the 4.0 litre Mecachrome V8s in the GP2 cars. Sounded so much better than the 1.6 litre V6 hybrids. They sounded like real F1 cars. Everyone was going WOW! That is the wrong way round folks. The sound is the magic, the sound should scare you. Fk modern corporate F1. The corporations took it over and screwed it up. Fk Mercedes & Toto Wolff.

If it wasn’t for Red Bulls massive but insane commitment Mercedes would be lapping every car on the track. Mercedes have been bad for F1. TOO MUCH MONEY. Look, Williams had to sell up! Unstoppable in the 80s & 90s, the best team they were, now all but gone. Honda pulled out! McLaren are in massive debt and have just literally had to sell the LAND that their HQ & factory stands on to survive!!! New drivers are billionaires sons ! HELLO! Alarm bells guys. WAKE the f up. F1 is gross. F1 is way too expensive. Cost capping coming in way too late.
Volt7 Cool Tangs
Volt7 Cool Tangs Acum lună
This just goes to show how absolutely outrageously expensive it is to compete in F1. This is utter, utter madness. Even in the 60s & 70s they could build amazing sounding V12s and V8s that the whole romance and glory of F1 is built on. Just because an engine has to now be green & hybrid ffs. Max Mosley was right about cost capping back in 2009. As Vettell said “bring back the V12s” Current engines still sound like Hoovers. It’s ALL about the sound guys. Don’t you GET it!? Who cares if the engines are putting out 600 bhp or 1100 bhp. There should be 24 car grids, not 20. Good on Red Bull for the insane commitment but Ken Tyrrell was putting out 6 wheelers and winning 3 World Championships from a couple of wood sheds and 25 people. Even Williams had to sell up. Disgraceful.

F1 is a perfect marketing platform. I once read a article about the huge amount of money Marlboro has put into F1 in the past. If they would have to advertise in papers and magazines to reach the same amount of people it would cost them 6 times more. So, it costs them a lot, but far less then other kind of advertising. The year Max Verstappen came to F1, had as result a 7% higher Red Bull sales in the Netherlands. Its about 10 million Euro extra sales in his first year alone.

This must feel as something of a kick in the nuts for other teams. Wasn't it this same Red Bull that lamented how "there had to be an engine development stop" because "there was no way they could afford continueing to develop the Honda engine"? For me they thoroughly deserve the nickname Red Bullshit.

@Eq_NightGlider_ Oh, I get that. But it's somewhat ironic that it was RBR/Honda who were vehemently against an engine development freeze before Honda announced it would get out of F1 yet again. It's even more ironic how RBR cried crocodile tears lamenting how "they couldn't afford to develop that engine" and hinted at leaving F1 to apply extra pressue on getting that engine development freeze. But as soon as that development freeze ws a fact, RBR presented a fully worked out plan for building a completely new RBR Power Trains factoy and hiring away Mercedes engine development staff. So the whole "poor little us need that engine development freeze" act was BS, as they already had the plans worked out.
Eq_NightGlider_ Acum lună
No. They wanted the engine freeze so they could have time to take over Honda’s operations.

What a load of BS. Next year's RBR engine is this year's Honda's IP but frozen. Also, RBR have to steal engineers from Merc because they can't create their own. Lolz. There best hope is to wait for 2025 to either produce their own engine DNA or wait for VW to potentially enter F1 with Audi or Porchse. Both is very unlikely.

If this is done correctly and they take advantage of the other benefits this brings, such as manufacturinga high performance road car (Mclaren like but with its own engine) then this investment will pay for itself very quickly and provide the missing piece of the puzzle for RBR.
