The Red Bull Formula 1 team has launched a brand new energy station that it will use during Grand Prix weekends in the paddock.

The new home has been named the F1 Holzhaus (or Wood House). The original version of the Holzhaus debuted in MotoGP in 2018, but did appear as a one-off in at the F1 Austrian Grand Prix.

Red Bull states that the new motor home will be bigger than the original, and is made up of "sustainably sourced Austrian timber".

According to Red Bull, the station offers 27 percent more floor space than the old version, but "can be assembled by a crew of 25, with a 32-hour build, and an even faster pack down".

“At the 2005 San Marino Grand Prix, Red Bull changed the game with the introduction of its Energy Station," said Red Bull team principal Christian Horner. 

"Over the last 14 seasons, the Energy Station has undergone several transformations, moving with the times, first to accommodate two F1 teams after the arrival of Toro Rosso, and then with a series of upgrades to better meet our changing requirements.

“This week, we’re changing the game again with the unveiling of the new Energy Station, better known in Austria as the Holzhaus.

"It’s a sustainable structure that brings a touch of the Styrian Alps to the F1 paddock, having been designed to meet the current and future needs of ourselves and Toro Rosso. If it sees half as much drama as the old Energy Station."
