Star of the evening was our new car, the VCARB 01, with its sparkling blue and white livery reflecting the team’s new colours. Present were Peter Bayer, Visa Cash App RB’s CEO and Team Principal Laurent Mekies, who were joined on stage by our drivers, eight times Grand Prix winner Daniel Ricciardo from Australia and the exciting Japanese youngster, Yuki Tsunoda. Alongside them was Amna Al-Qubaisi, the Emirati who is carrying the Visa Cash App RB colours in this year’s F1 Academy championship.
Entertainment came courtesy of major names from the music industry in the shape of rapper, singer-songwriter and Pulitzer Prize winner Kendrick Lamar, and the multi-award winning rapper and record producer, Baby Keem.
The enthusiasm and energy of the evening mirrors that of the Visa Cash App RB team going into the new Formula 1 World Championship season. Together with our new partners, we are aiming to raise the bar and push ourselves towards the front of the starting grid.
