After testing the RB20, Coulthard explained his observations to "It functions as you would expect in those conditions. No surprises," Coulthard said. "I think the technical team were happy with the numbers they were getting in terms of… the things you can get out of that, the cooling and load sensors."

After testing at Silverstone, the RB20 was finally unveiled. The new car in which Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez will sit looks a lot like last year's RB19, but those who look closer will see the Mercedes concept in the new car. Test days begin in Bahrain on Wednesday and more will become clear on how each team stands.

Coulthard already looks ahead to the new Formula 1 season, pointing out one of the contenders. "I don’t have a crystal ball, but you’ve got to believe Ferrari had a strong car last year in terms of single-lap pace," he said. "If they’ve managed to improve on whatever it was that was making their race pace difficult then they are a real contender."
