Red Bull Racing is coming off of a VERY good 2011 Formula One season. Their RB7 racing car took home 12 wins and 27 podiums with Sebastian Vettel and Mark Weber behind the wheel.
Unfortunately, time doesn’t stand still in F1 and rule changes — as well as competition from other makers — meant that they would have to redesign the RB7. This is the car they’re replacing it with, the RB8. Red Bull isn’t going into detail about the new car, but we see that it has the same stepped wing design we’re seeing from everyone this season. They pull it off better than Ferrari does, though. It doesn’t have to be pretty and it isn’t. Time will tell if it’s as fast as the RB7.
Red Bull will continue to have Vettel and Weber as drivers next year.
