Red Bull launches Honda-powered RB15 in striking one-off livery

Red Bull launches Honda-powered RB15 in striking one-off livery

The team's new addition to its driver line-up, Pierre Gasly, arrives from junior squad Toro Rosso, which used Honda's power units last season.

But it is understood that the former world champions will revert to their normal colours in time for the season-opening race in Melbourne on March 17.

The Aston Martin Red Bull Racing RB15, the first Red Bull to be powered by Honda, has been unleashed.

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

Red Bull's RB15, with special livery, is steered around Silverstone by Max Verstappen. Honda supplied Red Bull junior team Toro Rosso past year, but in a Red Bull chassis it could have its first shot at a race victory since returning to F1 in 2015.

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

In a short video posted on Twitter, Verstappen offered a positive assessment of his initial run on board the new vehicle. Red Bull won four races in 2018 but believes a works partnership with Honda will boost its chances of challenging Mercedes and Ferrari more consistently, and Verstappen admits working with a new manufacturer is something he is eager to do. "We're all very positive, but it also needs to take a bit of time". We've obviously been able to strike at venues that have suited the characteristics of our auto, winning four races last year - should have been five - and three races the year before.

"I want to get the best out of myself, but you have to see what the vehicle and engine are going to do. At the moment, I am of course very optimistic, but also realistic and I think time will tell how we are going to perform". "The first two or three weeks feel like they are good to have and then after a break you want to get going". "And for sure this helped me in Toro Rosso as well".
