Red Bull launches new-look F1 vehicle earlier than usual

Red Bull became the first of Formula One's top three teams to lift the covers off their new-look vehicle on Monday, a week before pre-season testing starts in Spain, but kept some secrets under wraps.

Red Bull has unveiled its 2018 Formula 1 vehicle, the RB14, with a "special edition" livery.

Verstappen's brace of victories took Red Bull's total for the season to three after Daniel Ricciardo snatched his fifth career win in Azerbaijan earlier in the year.

The four times world champions, third overall a year ago after winning three of the 20 races, are hoping to be back in the championship mix for the first time since Mercedes began to dominate in 2014.

The shark fin, T-wing and monkey seat have all been removed accordingly and the vehicle features F1's new-for-2018 halo cockpit safety device.

Red Bull are armed with one of the most talented and exciting driver pairings on the grid, with both Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo aiming for their first Drivers' Championship this year.

Aston Martin, which this year is a title sponsor of the team, has its branding featuring prominently.

The RB14, which will be raced by Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo in the upcoming campaign, is the auto the Milton Keynes team hope will return them to championship contention. Much will depend on the progress engine suppliers Renault, with whom Red Bull have experienced a turbulent relationship in recent years, have made over the winter.

"It serves a objective - but you wouldn't do it if you didn't have to, and this year we didn't have to".
