Testing is well underway in Barcelona as the teams work out their new 2019 cars but an issue may have already arisen at Red Bull. According to some early rumours, the team is unable to run full power due to vibrations caused by the power unit.
According to ex-McLaren engineer Marc Priestley, the RB15 is currently dealing with a power unit issue caused by the level of vibrations caused by the team's new Honda power unit.
If the rumour is true, it has left Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly down on power compared to their rivals and in need of a fix as the Red Bull team continues to get to grips with their new power unit partner.
A rumour that has existed for a while, both McLaren and Toro Rosso have reportedly had to deal with the same kind of issue in the past and it seems as though the Japanese manufacturer has been unable to find a fix to their problem.
While it is early in the season right now the team will be hoping the issue can be fixed before they arrive in Melbourne for the season opener next month.
