Red Bull’s team manager, Christian Horner, is concerned about Ferrari’s rumored 30 bhp increase in engine power as part of reliability upgrades for 2023. Due to Ferrari’s dismal reliability in 2022, Team Principal Frederic Vasseur denied any additional horsepower, but Horner maintained his caution.

Horner clarified the following in an interview with Auto Motor und Sport:

“There shouldn’t be significant horsepower gains because the engines are homologated. Additionally, because the fuel has been homologated, any reports of new fuels shouldn’t be allowed.”

Horner is aware that Ferrari may have discovered a way to boost performance by resolving their reliability problems from the previous season. He declared:

“Ferrari had some reliability concerns last year, so if they’ve managed to address that and, as a result, been able to ramp up their power, undoubtedly, they will see some type of development now,” said the expert.

Ferrari may be able to increase performance only by running the engine at higher settings, so Red Bull needs to be aware of this possibility. The head of the Red Bull squad continued:

“We must take that into consideration since there is a lot of [possible horsepower]. After their failures the previous year, we observed them reduce the wattage. We therefore know that they have the capability to increase the volume of their engine.”

Red Bull had several minor faults, but nothing as serious as Ferrari’s, despite not having as many reliability concerns as Ferrari. Horner stated:

We experienced a few minor dependability difficulties, but nothing comparable to Ferrari’s.

In order to avoid falling behind in the title race in 2023, Red Bull will need to keep a careful eye on Ferrari’s engine advancements.

The Bahrain Grand Prix will kick off the 2023 Formula One season on March 3–5, with preseason testing taking place the week before.
