Red Bull unveil livery change on new F1 auto for 2019

13 February 2019

However, the press images still show how tightly Red Bull has managed to package its new Honda engine behind the driver.

Red Bull have described the new appearance as a "one-off livery".

Max Verstappen gave the auto its first laps in a shakedown at Silverstone, the first time the team have run a Honda engine.

"So our objective very much is to try and be more consistent across all of the circuits, and hopefully with more horsepower than we had a year ago will only help to lessen that gap".

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

Verstappen completed 39 laps with the team reporting that the auto ran "faultlessly".

The former champions finished third overall last season, winning four races and well ahead of fourth-placed rivals Renault.

The former world champions launched their 2018 auto in dark black and blue colours before reverting to their traditional look for the start of testing.

In the past Red Bull has launched a number of its cars in a pre-season livery that has been used in testing, including a black and white camouflage livery in 2015, and a blue and black color scheme a year ago.
