Red Bull unveil first Honda-powered auto in one-off livery

F1 in 2019: Max Verstappen debuts deceptive Red Bull RB15

Today's auto launch meant that for the first time a Honda powered Red Bull was presented, a move that has been spoken about ever since its announcement.

Red Bull have dished out a new and refreshing livery for the winter testing next week.

After five years without championship success, Red Bull is switching from Renault power to Honda this year.

Introducing the new Red Bull.with a colour scheme we were not expecting!

"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 past year will only help to lessen that gap".

Honda is hoping to profit from retaining the same power unit concept for a third straight season - the first time it has done so in the hybrid era, having abandoned its 2015/16 layout for its 2017 campaign with McLaren. "Now we've got eight days' of testing ahead and it's important that we maximise track time and get as much out of that process as possible prior to the first race of the new season in Melbourne".

Claire Williams claims she would have been sacked if father and boss Frank had not liked the paint job on the team's latest Formula One cars.

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 auto.

"I guess up until Australia you can't really set goals", said Verstappen. So, I'm always quite easy going.

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

Verstappen, who shared the victories with Australian Daniel Ricciardo last season, has a new teammate for 2019 in Frenchman Pierre Gasly.

"The first two or three weeks feel like they are good to have and then after a break you want to get going".

"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 relation I will have with the engineers". While they will need to give Honda some time before they can realise their true potential, the data has already been very promising.
