Red Bull Racing has taken the covers off its race livery for the 2018 Formula 1 season.
The Milton Keynes squad unveiled its new RB14 challenger in a special one-off blue and silver look last week, which has now been replaced by an evolution of its familiar Red Bull energy drink colours.
Daniel Ricciardo has jumped behind the wheel of the car for the opening day of pre-season testing at Spain’s Circuit de Catalunya.
“We launched the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing TAG Heuer RB14 last week in our special edition ‘Disruption’ livery, but the ‘DisruptoBull’ was always intended as a one-off,” read a post from the team.
“This will be our third season using the matte design – though the underlying scheme can be traced all the way back to 2005 and our rookie season in Formula 1 when the RB1 raced with a livery that has made its mark.
“We’re still a relatively young team in F1 terms – but over the last 13 seasons our distinctive blue, yellow and red scheme has achieved a level of recognition of which we’re proud.”
Ricciardo will hand the RB14 over to team-mate Max Verstappen for the second day of the opening four-day test.
