Max Verstappen is urging Red Bull not to blow the World Championship by focusing too much on their 2022 car.
Major regulation changes come into Formula 1 next year which will mean markedly different cars – and they do not appear as if by magic.
A great deal of research and planning will go into the 2022 challengers, with some teams declaring they will spend the vast majority of this year focusing on next season rather than developing their current car.
Red Bull will not want to find themselves behind the eight-ball come next spring. But Verstappen wants to feel continuous improvement in the RB16B.
