Helmut Marko recalled in Bahrain that Aston Martin technical director Dan Fallows, as well as a number of other engineers, had left Red Bull to embrace the Silverstone team project and that they had a “good memory”, meaning that the Aston Martin AMR23 has visual similarities to the Red Bull RB19. Also during the post-race press conference at the Sakhir circuit, Sergio Pérez stated that it was good to have “three Red Bull cars on the podium”.
Wanting to clarify what he said in Bahrain, Red Bull’s adviser explained in an interview on Formel1.de’s YouTube channel that he did not mean that the former employees, now at Aston Martin, had used information about their team’s intellectual property. in the construction of the British team’s new car.
“No, anyway. And it’s not a charge,” he said when asked if the team would protest the rivals’ car. “These are just joking comments. If you look at the field, Aston Martin is the car that looks the most like Red Bull,” said Marko.
So, for now, any dispute that could arise between Red Bull and Aston Martin is ruled out.
