Formula 1 is about to experience significant transformations that could redefine the relationship between teams and the structure of the grid. Renowned journalist Joe Saward recently highlighted that the current partnership between the Red Bull Racing and AlphaTauri teams, which currently acts as an entry team for Red Bull juniors, could face challenges with the possible ban on this structure in the 2030 Concorde Agreement. .
This information gains relevance in light of the news that the collaboration between Red Bull and AlphaTauri will be strengthened, with AlphaTauri moving to a new headquarters next to the Red Bull campus in Milton Keynes. Such a move signals a strengthening of ties, allowing for more effective shared use of resources such as the new wind tunnel.
However, Saward warns that future changes to F1’s commercial and technical agreements are aimed at preventing a single entity from owning two teams and redefining the term “constructor”, increasing the need for more car components to be manufactured by the teams themselves. This would limit teams’ ability to purchase as many components from competitors as is currently permitted.
The inclusion of these rules in the 2030 Concorde Agreement aims to increase autonomy and strengthen the ten teams on the grid. The proposed change gives teams enough time to adapt and make the necessary investments. However, it also suggests that Red Bull and AlphaTauri may need to rethink their collaboration plans if the current structure is banned from 2030.
Formula 1 is always evolving, and these changes reflect the continuous search for a balance between competitiveness and innovation. Teams now have to navigate these turbulent waters cautiously, planning strategically for the future while maximizing their partnership in the present.
With the potential change on the horizon, the 2023 season could become an even more crucial period for AlphaTauri and Red Bull as they look to consolidate their partnership and make the most of the synergy between the teams. Meanwhile, F1 is closely watching the impact of these potential rules, which promise to reshape the fabric of the sport as we know it today.
