Red Bull launch ‘brave’ and ‘innovative’ RB20 for 2024 season

The reigning champions revealed their new car on Thursday, six days ahead of pre-season testing, although much of the focus at the launch event was diverted by an ongoing internal investigation into team principal Christian Horner. Red Bull design chief Adrian Newey insisted the new car is an evolution of last year’s RB19, but a number of visual design variations — including a […]

Nationals, OF Joey Gallo agree to one-year deal

Outfielder Joey Gallo and the Washington Nationals are in agreement on a one-year, $5 million contract, sources told ESPN, filling an outfield slot with the rebuilding team as Gallo looks to regain full-time at-bats.
