Red Bull to crash-test lighter 2022 car

Red Bull will need to take a lighter 2022 car through renewed FIA crash testing, it has emerged. “That’s why Red Bull has now decided to take a radical step to reduce weight,” Michael Schmidt wrote in Auto Motor und Sport. He said Red Bull is working on a lighter monocoque, which won’t just cost about EUR 2 million but also trigger a new round of mandatory FIA crash testing. It is believed another team has also alerted the FIA to the need for follow-up crash testing in the near future – but it isn’t Mercedes. “Not just because of the crash tests – you’d have to build three new chassis and that costs you EUR 2 million extra.”.
