Over the weekend in China, something interesting happened. Visa Cash App RB found themselves in sixth place in the constructors’ championship. They’ve racked up seven points. And guess what? They’re two points ahead of the Haas F1 Team. They’re planning to keep it that way, especially with some new upgrades they’re bringing to Miami.

Oh, and let me tell you, it’s not just any competition. It’s a fierce one. Especially between RB and Haas. These two? They’re always at it, neck and neck on the track. Laurent Mekies, the big boss at Visa Cash App RB, he’s got his eyes on the prize. Wants to stay ahead of Haas, no matter what.

Mekies spilled the beans to Autosport. He said, “We’re not delusional. We know we don’t have the fastest car out of the bottom five teams.” But, he thinks it’s all good practice. Like, top-notch training for the team. To pull off flawless weekends, you need everything to be on point. Strategy, tyre management, you name it. Slip up on one, and there goes your point.

So, what’s RB’s game plan? They’re rolling out some upgrades in Miami. Mekies is playing it cool, though. Says there’s no surefire win in this league. He’s pretty sure the competition will bring their A-game too. “Nail the weekend,” he says, “and maybe, just maybe, you’ll snag that P10.”

It’s all up in the air, folks. But one thing’s for sure. This battle? It’s going to be one heck of a show.
