‘Your 2021 Car Is Ready For Collection’: Red Bull Pokes Fun At Racing Point

The Racing Point RP20's near-identical design to the 2019 Mercedes F1 car prompted criticism from other teams towards the start of the season.

The Mercedes W11, which allowed Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes to comfortably win the 2020 Drivers’ and Constructors’ Titles, is the fastest racing car ever – and it’s likely to remain so for a while, with next year’s cars set to be considerably slower.

Following the season finale in Abu Dhabi, Mercedes posted a tweet of its two drivers doing donuts ahead of the W11 being retired.

Red Bull were quick to reply to the tweet to poke fun at Racing Point following the Copygate scandal earlier this year.

“Retirement? Your 2021 car is ready for collection, @RacingPointF1,” Red Bull posted in response to the tweet.

Other teams and the broader F1 community reacted to the exchange with more jokes and memes.
