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

F1 in 2019: Max Verstappen debuts deceptive Red Bull RB15

The former champions were third overall in last season's constructors' championship, winning four races.

A tumultuous relationship with Renault, that yielded success at the start but an increasing number of reliability issues towards the end, was brought to a close, with Red Bull opting for a bold new future with Honda, despite the Japanese manufacturer being fourth and last in the engine pecking order.

Australian Daniel Ricciardo has left Red Bull to join Renault with Verstappen, who finished fourth in the drivers' standings past year, to be partnered by young Frenchman Pierre Gasly.

"I was really excited to jump in the vehicle and as soon as we got going it felt pretty normal", he said.

Red Bull have unveiled a striking new livery design on a vehicle they hope will fire them towards a first championship success in six years.

I am happy for everyone and doing my best. "And I wish everyone compassion, understanding and healing", wrote Adams. He added , "Some of its details are misrepresented; some are exaggerated; some are outright false".

"The buzz really starts at the beginning of the year when you see the vehicle coming together". "The first two or three weeks feel like they are good to have and then after a break you want to get going. It was a very positive day so very happy about it". For sure there will be moments where, as a team, we make mistakes or it's not going as we want it to, but I think what is very important is that the team and Honda, we are pushing really hard to improve the development.

"At the moment I am of course very optimistic, but also realistic. Time will tell how we're going to perform". Formula One is the pinnacle of motorsport. You fight against teams like Ferrari, Mercedes, Renault and when you start a new partnership, it always takes time before things run super smoothly and in the most efficient way.

Both drivers are at Silverstone today for the first run of the new auto.

Technical director James Allison said the team had worked hard on the suspension and aerodynamics to deliver a auto that would be kinder to its tyres than a year ago and remain competitive at every track on the calendar.
