According to the past, the Spanish Grand Prix was the time when the teams came up with their first major car upgrades of the year, because this site began a continuous continental race, and this year, when Aston Martin launched the B version of the car, which can be called AMR22, it was greatly changed. Everyone was shocked: the whole side is almost a replica of Red Bull's RB18 car this year! Red Bull of course protested immediately.
However, the FIA had previously sent personnel to the Aston Martin team headquarters in the United Kingdom to check, and concluded that no evidence of plagiarism was found, and there was no trace of "reverse engineering" (taking photos to restore and copy) the Red Bull RB18. That is to say: although it looks very similar, it cannot prove that the AMR22B is actually a replica of the RB18. Although their side boxes, hoods, and heat vents all show the same concept, it can only be said that the two teams interpret the new regulations in 2022 in this part. of the same opinion.
According to Andrew Green (really "green"), technical director of Aston Martin, the team had tested this version of the design at the end of last year, and it was only temporarily listed for the record, and the original design did not perform well at the beginning of this year, so it was decided to let The B version of the car was put on the field early, and Red Bull team leader Christian Horner's accusation that "the ultimate tribute is plagiarism" is too much (after all, the facelifted car has to pass the FIA crash test first).
However, Red Bull's accusations are not without purpose. This team does have a history of "plagiarism": Aston Martin's predecessor Racing Point's RP20 car the first half of the previous year obviously copied Mercedes' W10 car of the year, making it dubbed "pink" by the industry at the time. Mercedes", but the two teams already have a cooperative relationship, but the RP20's front brake cooling duct is beyond the range that the FIA stipulates that cars can be shared across teams. Design drawings were released, so Racing Point was penalized and fined.
Furthermore, Red Bull aerodynamics director Dan Fallow announced last year that he would switch to Aston Martin this year, and he is a technical veteran of Red Bull: he has been with the team since 2006, that is, he participated in the four consecutive championships from 2010 to 2013. During the period, he was familiar with the design concept of Red Bull, so he was considered by the original owner as "taking refuge with a gun", especially when he took office in April and Aston Martin launched a redesigned car in May. In fact, the process cannot be so fast, so It also involves whether he secretly contacted the new owner last year, but it is still an old saying: there is no evidence.
In the Spanish station, Red Bull also displayed a green canned summer version of the dragon fruit-flavored Red Bull drink on the podium to satirize Aston Martin's "green Red Bull", but in fact, since Red Bull decided to set up its own engine department last year, They also poached from Mercedes on a large scale. Now it is said that Aston Martin has hired seven people from Red Bull, but Red Bull has hired dozens of people from Mercedes, and Horner's reason is "our new factory is very close to them"!
During the pre-season test this year, Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz said that he was very happy to see ten teams with ten designs. After all, there is only one “Holy Grail”—and under the premise that the impact of the new regulations is unknown at the beginning, the teams should have prepared more than one plan to respond quickly depending on the situation. What kind of evolution will there be in the future? It is worth continuing to observe.
