Red Bull will have some updates on their car for the next race, the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at Imola on April 18.
Following on from their narrow loss to Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton at the season opening race in Bahrain, Red Bull are pressing ahead with early developments for their RB16B as they raise the performance of their 2021 car.
"[We've] some developments ready in the pipeline for Imola, more for subsequent races," Red Bull's Chief Engineer Paul Monaghan told media, including RacingNews365.com.
"We have a quick car and 22 races left, so come on, it's not won and lost here. It's now a two prong fight. We need this car to be able to put it down on the ground and run and give us no hiccups.
"We will put as much performance onto the car as we possibly can by Imola. Our destiny is in our control, and we can't influence what Mercedes, McLaren, Ferrari and everybody else wants to do.
"So, we've got to remain focused, we've identified some areas where the car can be improved. And we concentrate on those, we can't influence what the others do."
Monaghan said that the team are in this for the long haul, having hit the ground running in Bahrain with a quick car. This is somewhat unusual for Red Bull, who usually take a few races to start unlocking the performance of their car.
"We've got to develop it. We've got to make it bulletproof," Monagahan explained. "We've got to give Max and Checo a good car, drive it as quickly as they can at Imola, Spain and Portugal and Monaco and wherever else we go.
"It's not all about going to Imola, chalking up a win on the board to say 'oh well now we're champions'. It's gonna be a long fight for a long season.
"It's not won and lost here. There's a sense of disappointment in the garage, which is felt by all. But we've a quick car, we've got fantastic drivers and got a great team. Everybody's aware that we're going to be challenging all the way through."
