So for testing 3 days per test makes things a bit awkward. Will they split the 3rd day or not!?

The totall number of testing days is even. So they could do Max - Alex - Max and then next week Alex - Max - Alex.

 

Or, like Ferrari is gonna do, D1: Vettel. D2: Vettel/Leclerc. D3: Leclerc.

2nd week they put all the new bits on the car so I think they’ll split day 3 in both weeks.

From an interview (German)  with the owner of the RB teams:


Dietrich Mateschitz: "Best preparation for a long time"

Red Bull boss Dietrich Mateschitz looks to the upcoming Formula 1 season with high expectations for a good reason.
Why are you so confident for the new Formula 1 season?

Dietrich Mateschitz: We have clearly the highest expectations this year compared to previous years. Our engine partner Honda did an excellent job in winter. On the test bench, we drove kilometers like never before without any problems (around 5000). The engine enables us to be at the forefront in terms of performance and stability.
Formula 1 is a good sign that the teams at Red Bull Racing and AlphaTauri remained the same ...

Yes, continuity is important, everything is well coordinated. All key positions remained the same. The initial difficulties that we had at Red Bull Racing in 2019 will no longer exist this year, we can already say that.
Is the computer data real?

All data from the computer and the wind tunnel are better than last year, and we are confident that they will also be reflected on the track. That means we can hope to fight for the World Cup.
Are the same driver pairings for the pre-season also an advantage?

In any case, since everyone has already proven their skills. Max (Verstappen) has what it takes to be a champion, Alex (Albon) was most amazed at how he mastered the difficult tasks in his first season. And Daniil (Kvyat) and Pierre (Gasly) can also keep up with the top.
Have you signed the new basic contracts between your teams, the FIA ​​and the F1 promoter Liberty that involve a lot of money?

Not yet. But it is only a matter of drafting details. I don't expect any problems. Time is not running out. We also drove a time before without a basic contract. But everything is ready for signature.
So far, Honda has only been committed to Formula 1 until 2021. Will it continue then?

We still have two seasons to choose. It also depends on our services.

finally somebody asked Marko what this "he needs a competitive engine" exit clause means.

"The engine has to be within two tenths of the best engine"

So next question then: how can you prove that? :lol:

Also interestingly he says that AlphaTauri was upgraded from a junior to a sister team

RB will have their own measurement tools to compare the various PU's.

 

But if I would be Max, would I trust those figures presented to him when it's exactly within 2 tenths?

Exactly.

I dont think that it will ever come this far, but imagine a judge has to decide on this. They would probably take the measurements of a neutral party. That will be the time for Renault to return the favour  :lol: 

Ok, I'll get my coat.

"If we are on the backfoot in the title race, then we should race in China, since we are traditionally strong at the end of the season"
