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

F1 in 2019: Max Verstappen debuts deceptive Red Bull RB15

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

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 are due to take to Silverstone later today to film a shakedown of their new vehicle.

"After my first run I was smiling, very happy with how the vehicle was behaving - plus the engine as well, very positive".

"I am very excited to get started as the off-season has been quite long", said 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.

"What I'm most looking forward to is starting the season and seeing how the whole team is operating together with Honda and how the engine is performing together with the chassis", said Verstappen ahead of the initial limited mileage filming day. "The first two or three weeks feel like they are good to have and then after a break you want to get going".

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.

"We are expecting a lot", said Verstappen.

"We are expecting a lot from Honda and are positive, but it will not be ideal from race one".

"What is very important is the team and Honda are pushing really hard to improve the development". I am optimistic, but also realistic and only time will tell as to how we will get on.

Featuring a one-off livery for the reveal, Max Verstappen took his first laps in the new RB15 that the team hopes will be a challenger to Mercedes and Ferrari this season.

"Until we get to Australia, my goals are a bit blind".
