Red Bull Racing will partner with Therabody, which makes them the official recovery partner for the team in the 2021 season. The wellness company is known for the persuasive therapy devices, and teams from various sports have collaborated with them.
During the races, Verstappen and Perez along with the pit crew will have the access to Therabody’s equipment. However, the availability is not only limited to the races but also used during pre-race workouts and post-race recovery. The devices will help to speed up the recovery, reduce muscle soreness, and improve athletic performance, enabling them with a team at their peak condition.
The pit-stops for Red Bull will be faster with the new partner
The new Red Bull partner will also provide training programs to the physios of the F1 team, to enable the optimized use of the Therabody ecosystem. This will be most beneficial for the team’s pit crew. Because a mechanic goes through a lot of physical stress, staying at the optimum condition is extremely crucial for the entire team’s performance. The Austrian team boss Christian Horner claims that with a fit and well pit crew, the stops can be much faster.
Horner said, “From the outside, Formula One might not seem like an intensely physical sport, especially for the mechanics in the garage. But these guys work incredibly hard to be in the best condition possible and if they weren’t, 1.82-second pit stops wouldn’t be possible,
“The downside is that the intense preparation and repetition can lead to muscle soreness so teaming up with Therabody will help mitigate that and will help the team recover faster so that they can perform at their best.”
Both the companies will also work to develop certain protocols for the drivers and the pit-crews, and later on will implement these globally.
Red Bull drivers- Verstappen and Perez will take the new RB16B in the pre-season testing, prior to the first race of the 2021 season in the Bahrain circuit on Sunday, March 28. We might witness better performance and faster pit stops in the Austrian team, using the Therabody tech.
We are delighted to announce tech wellness innovator, @therabody, as our Official Recovery Partner 💪
