Podcast: Limp launch for F1 2024's most controversial car

1 min read

We discuss the launch of the new 'Visa CashApp RB' VCARB 01 in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast.

Ben Anderson and Scott Mitchell-Malm join Edd Straw to discuss what was, to much of the watching world, a launch non-event and the terrible impression the team's rebrand has made.

We explain the baffling rationale for the new name and how the way the launch was presented to the world made this an uneasy public debut for a team that could prove controversial this year.

The battle between Daniel Ricciardo and Yuki Tsunoda, and more importantly the implications for both their futures, are also explained, along with a look at the team's on-track prospects for the season.

Ex-F1 technical director Gary Anderson also takes a close look at the car and explains why he believes it's a good foundation for the 2024 season.
