Red Bull Racing's striking new RB15 breaks cover!


Red Bull Racing has revealed its 2019 Honda-powered RB15 which features a bold new dark blue and red livery.

Before we all get excited, the striking motif has been labeled a "special edition livery" by the Milton Keynes team, unfortunately.

Max Verstappen is shaking down RB15 at Silverstone this morning.

A first look at the new-spec design reveals a pretty tightly-package rear-end which hopefully won't lead to cooling or reliability concerns for Honda.

The Japanese manufacture's unit replaces Renault - Red Bull's long-standing engine supplier, and the jury is still out as to how efficient its progress has been over the winter and whether it will be able to deliver a winning product to the very ambitious Red Bull/Max Verstappen combo.

Ahead of today's shakedown run, the Dutch driver admitted to being impatient to get behind the wheel although he certainly wasn't ready to set any bold targets off the bat.

"I guess up until Australia you can't really set goals," said Verstappen.

"It's a bit blind. In F1 it's related to the package you get. So, I'm always quite easy going. That doesn't mean I'm not always going to try to do as good as I can try to get the best out of myself.

"But you're so dependent on what you get as a package you just have to wait."
