By:

Red Bull made no secret of the fact its 2021 F1 car is an evolution of its predecessor, but in keeping the same foundations while hiding some tightly-guarded updates with its RB16B, the team aims to avoid suffering the same pitfalls of previous years

The extra B is not a typo; Red Bull, in naming its 2021 chariot the RB16B, has not even considered the pretence that its latest Formula 1 car is an all-new machine. The team's figures have been open about the amount of carryover from last year's car and, if you look at the form-book over the past few seasons, that might play into its favour.
