Red Bull 2019 F1 auto launch

Red Bull 2019 F1 auto launch

Red Bull have described the new appearance as a "one-off livery". The team revealed their vehicle via Twitter earlier today and have sent Verstappen around Silverstone to show us what it looks like on track. "After my first run, I was smiling - very happy with how the auto was behaving plus the engine as well".

"I am very excited to get started as the off-season has been quite long", said Verstappen, 21.

"Up until Australia you can't really set goals - it's a bit blind".

Red Bull finished third in the constructors' championship behind Mercedes and Ferrari a year ago, but despite the change in engine supplier and the potential disruption that could bring, team boss Christian Horner is confident the team can challenge for victories more often.

Haven't we seen this before from Red Bull?

Red Bull have also gone onto clarify that this livery is only a test one and will not be used throughout the season.

What can we expect from Red Bull in 2019?

Red Bull has revealed the first photos of Max Verstappen on track in his new RB15.

Red Bull took four straight double titles at the start of the decade but has taken only a handful of wins in most years of the hybrid era, frequently pinning its deficit on erstwhile supplier Renault.

Excitement is building as Wednesday sees the second of three 2019 Formula 1 vehicle launches with Red Bull set to lift the cover on the RB15 this afternoon, United Kingdom time.

What's changing on the Formula 1 2019 cars?

Red Bull's RB15 is the successor to a RB14 auto which finished last season battling for victories, with Verstappen, who won twice in 2018, widely tipped to challenge multiple champions Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.

Daniel Ricciardo's departure to Renault has opened the door for 23-year-old Pierre Gasly to stake his claim as a race victor of the future.
