F1 2019 | Red Bull livery, RB15, Max Verstappen Silverstone testing

F1 in 2019: Max Verstappen debuts deceptive Red Bull RB15

A statement from Red Bull's website hinted the new look could only make a brief appearance, claiming it to be a "special edition livery" for the arrival of the new Honda engines and driver Pierre Gasly.

Red Bull's RB15 is the successor to a RB14 vehicle 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.

"I'm very excited to just get started with the engine", Verstappen said.

Red Bull is expected to revert to a more traditional livery when testing begins in Barcelona next week.

Toro Rosso finished ninth of 10 teams a year ago with the Honda engine but Red Bull has sounded optimistic about the progress made by the Japanese manufacturer.

Red Bull parted company with engine partners Renault at the end of 2018, switching instead to Honda, which also provides power units for sister team Toro Rosso.

Ironically, the best thing for this team right now might actually be to lose within the next few rounds of the FA Cup. Both players' form will play a great part in deciding the fate of the title at the end of the season .

The vehicle was launched in a striking dark blue and red colour scheme which the team confirmed was just for the RB15's first shakedown at Silverstone on Wednesday.

Max Verstappen drove the RB15 around the circuit and although his team-mate Gasly was also at the track, he will have to wait until pre-season testing kicks off next week at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona to get his hands on the vehicle. "We're all very positive, but it also needs to take a bit of time".

"I've had the chance to have spent two years with Honda already", Gasly said.

"I want to get the best out of myself, but you have to see what the vehicle and engine are going to do".

"There are a lot of things you need to understand about them, and I had the chance to be there and be in the country to learn this, so for sure, I think on this side, this will help the relationship I will have with the engineers".

"Formula 1 is the pinnacle of motorsport".
