The engineering department at Red Bull Formula 1 has its sights set on another physically bending road car – this time it should be developed entirely in-house.
Advanced Red Bull technologies – the technical and commercial project arm of the Red Bull Racing Formula 1 team – is think about a second self-developed roadworthy car to follow the new Aston Martin Valkyrie.
Speaking to British publication Autocar, the driving force behind the design of the Aston Martin hypercar – renowned F1 aerodynamicist and Red Bull Racing Chief Technology Officer Adrian Newey – like the experience gained through the Valkyrie and other projects, explained the door to another Open road vehicle project.
“Red Bull Advanced Technologies was formed for this very project, but it has grown and matured and we now have quite a few commercial projects on the books. That makes it easier to take on a street car or a racetrack. Biased car that can be put on the road in less time because of the extra experience we have gained.
“So yes, absolutely, we would like to make another vehicle. What exactly this is and what it aims at is controversial. Looking at this room is probably the easiest way to put it, ”he added.
Any future road car designed by Newey and developed by Red Bull would not follow the Valkyrie if it sported the Aston Martin logo, as the British automaker’s entry into Formula 1 in 2021 raised the curtain on its partnership with Red Bull at Valkyrie -The line has drawn -up’s graduation.
Instead, Red Bull Advanced Technologies could try to bring the development in-house – an option raised by Red Bull Racing F1 team principal Christian Horner when he spoke on the official Formula One Beyond the Grid podcast last month.
“Well who knows. Now that the relationship with Aston [Martin] in Formula 1, it’s not finished with Advanced Technologies because there are still outstanding and ongoing projects, “said Horner when asked when the first road car with the Red Bull logo could hit the market.
“But of course the next, what’s the next step on this journey? After learning all these lessons with the Valkyrie it would be a great shame not to use them in something insane, “he added, lowering the tone of his voice by” insanity “indicating something in the pipeline that is still more is hardcore than the Valkyrie.
Red Bull Advanced Technologies’ second road vehicle project was supposed to be the Aston Martin Valhalla (at the bottom of the story), although Aston Martin did in-house development and reworked the Newey-designed AM-RB 003 concept on which the Valhalla was supposed to be based of an engine built by Red Bull’s main opponent Mercedes-AMG in Formula 1.
