Helmut Marko has said that suggestions Red Bull are going to trial a new suspension component are nonsensical.
Rumours had emerged in Italian media that Red Bull are set to try out a component that would, essentially, emulate the effects of rear wheel steeringl these rumours also fuelled by the fact that exactly where Red Bull spent their winter development tokens hasn't been confirmed.
However, it is known that Red Bull had to make modifications to their rear suspension to work around the new Honda power unit and cure some of their rear instability from last season. It's these modifications that Marko explained have caused the rumours.
“That is complete nonsense," Marko told F1-Insider.
"We already had this 'mysterious' suspension at the start in Bahrain. It's nothing special either, we had to design it because we needed a suspension that would fit the extremely narrow rear end that we built around the new, smaller and more compact Honda engine this season."
However, Red Bull will roll out updates of some description for Imola. Speaking after the Bahrain Grand Prix, chief engineer Paul Monaghan confirmed there will be some upgrades for the RB16B for the next race weekend.
