Red Bull Racing has new updates in Portugal for Verstappen and Perez

Red Bull Racing seems to have come to Portugal with some updates. On the Twitter channel of Formula 1 journalist Albert Fabrega, the new details to the RB16B are clearly highlighted.

In Imola, Red Bull came to the track with pretty much the same car as they had used in Bahrain. The team wanted to get to know the car better and make sure they got more out of the current package. To compete for the world title Red Bull will also need to provide new updates.

New updates for Red Bull Racing

Formula 1 teams won't be allowed to do much to the car in 2021, but all the aerodynamic parts of the car such as the bargeboards and wings can be changed. Red Bull has made good use of that in the run-up to the Grand Prix in Portimao.

In the first picture, you can see Red Bull's adjustments to the floor, where there is now more space between the first fin and the two elongated fins on the side. Next to the floor, the second picture shows the changes that have been made to the bargeboards. Again, you have to look for the differences, but they are there. The space around the diffuser also seems to have been changed on RB16B, although it is hard to tell from this picture.
