Next week expects two presentations related to 2023 F1 cars. Haas on Tuesday at 15:00 Italian time will present a show that will have the new title sponsor Moneygram, while the actual forms of the VF-23 will only be revealed in the Bahrain pit on February 23 before the three-day test. scheduled in the Sakhir circuit until Saturday 25 February. Red Bull has also made an appointment for next week, more precisely Friday 3 February, but even in this case it is difficult to believe that the team from Milton Keynes will reveal the important details of the RB19.

Already a year ago, in fact, Red Bull limited itself to presenting a new sponsor named Oracle on what to all intents and purposes was a regular car, a distant relative of the RB18 was seen playing in Barcelona and, above all, in Bahrain, where the ‘sliding’ sides were designed by Adrian Newey. In addition to Red Bull, AlphaTauri will also be presented in New York, but a week later, that is Saturday 11 February. The fact that Red Bull and AlphaTauri have chosen New York and the United States to present the cars of 2023 (or at least their lifetime) has confirmed the rumors that they see. Ford very close to partnering with Red Bull to announce the 2026 engines which will be built by the newly established Powertrains Limited in Milton Keynes.

New York Fashion Week.

However, the talks between Red Bull and Ford remain a topic destined to find new episodes in the near future since talks to continue the partnership with Honda even beyond 2025 they seem completely stuck.
