How the renewed Red Bull influence is present in RB's new F1 car

The other Formula 1 team going for a big rebrand in 2024 is the Red Bull sister squad – now known simply as RB. With it openly taking design cues from its partner team and a fresh look that resembles its not too distant past, its new sense of purpose and direction will be examined with its VCARB 01 car

Look, we've had our fun with the Visa Cash App RB name. It's certainly accrued a lot of interest among those who deride the transactions made to stuff finance-driven businesses in its moniker. Things would only have been enhanced if the team had signed Chip Ganassi as team manager and Doriane Pin as a driver so we'd have the "Chip and PIN" dream pairing...

Fiscal puns aside, the name can be forgiven (especially as we're just calling it RB) if the team did not tread the same road as the previous launches and actually put some paint on the car. And, credit where credit is due, it's done the business with a facsimile of the 2017-2019-era Toro Rosso liveries.
