Ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix, Red Bull Racing worked hard to avoid reliability problems. To that end, the Milton Keynes-based team brought a number of upgrades to the street circuit and even took back an already applied update to avoid a repeat of Max Verstappen's DRS problem.

Red Bull upgrades in Monaco

The new front wing that Verstappen used in Barcelona was taken off the RB18 and made way for the older, heavier one that did not present the DRS problem. So reports the Italian branch of Motorsport.com.

An additional air vent has also been added to the rear of the car, which should prevent problems caused by overheating. The team has also chosen to move the brake fluid reservoir to the belly of the RB18.

Then another update that was already known: the team has brought a new front suspension for both drivers, which will allow Verstappen and Sergio Perez to get through the sharp corners at Loews and Rascasse.
