2016 Red Bull RB12 Verstappen

Red Bull’s car for the 2016 season was designed by Adrian Newey (Chief Technical Officer), Rob Marshall (Chief Engineering Officer) and Dan Fallows (Head of Aerodynamics). The car was the further development of its predecessor, The Red Bull RB11, and that it continued the form that the team had with the RB11. The car used a Renault engine re-badged as a TAG Heuer following the breakdown in the relationship between Red Bull and Renault in 2015. The drivers’ lineup in the beginning of the season consisted of Daniel Ricardo and Daniil Kvyat. The Russian achieved first RB podium of the season in the Chinese grand Prix, but ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix, Kvyat was relegated back to Scuderia Toro Rosso for the rest of the season, while Max Verstappen was promoted in his place to Red Bull Racing. The Dutchman immediately paid back the team for the promotion by winning in his first race for Red Bull, the Spanish Grand Prix at Catalunya circuit.
