Pierre Waché, Technical Director of Red Bull, has stated that the Austrian team did not “do a fantastic job” on the RB19. However, he believes that it was their competition that failed to deliver.
The Car Performance
Waché has admitted that the RB19 is only “moderately good” in all areas, which has allowed them to create a strong car.
He says that it isn’t particularly good in one specific area, but is still a good car because they are faster than their competitors. He believes that they have done a good job but not a fantastic one.
He further added that their expectations were different at the beginning of the year because he was more surprised by their competitors who didn’t do as good a job.

"I don't think so."
"Maybe we realise that next year, because I hope next year's car will be better than this one in absolute terms." 👀

Pierre Waché’s Comments
Waché said that several other teams had a better car than Red Bull. He stated that it was their competition who failed to deliver on their cars. Waché also believes that the RB19 still has room for improvement.
He further added that the competition should have done better with their cars, and that they should have been more competitive with Red Bull.
However, he also acknowledged that the competition is fierce, and that it is difficult to stay ahead of the game.
Waché believes that Red Bull has a good chance of winning the championship this year, but that it will be a tough fight.
He also noted that they are constantly looking to improve their car and stay ahead of the competition.
