We delve into the reasons for Red Bull and Max Verstappen’s 2023 Formula 1 supremacy in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast.

Mark Hughes and Ben Anderson join Edd Straw to look at what precisely makes the Red Bull RB19 so dominant, and why the team is so effective at making the most of it.

Verstappen’s vital contribution is also discussed, while there’s also a comparison with Red Bull’s level of dominance and Mercedes’ in the past.

We also explain why no single consistent challenger to Red Bull has arisen, and evaluate which of the chasing pack is best placed to close the gap in the long term.

With Red Bull’s own powertrain programme providing its power units from 2026, we take a look at how it’s set up for F1’s next rules era, and dig into Verstappen’s claims that there’s no guarantee he will remain in F1 beyond his current contract.
