Red Bull unveils 2018 vehicle with special edition livery

Red Bull release pics of 2018 F1 car... and it's a HUGE change for Verstappen & Ricciardo

Aston Martin Red Bull Racing has launched its RB14, with a temporary livery which looks to have been created to stop rival from copying the design and getting it into the wind tunnel.

"Some years it's hard for the casual viewer to differentiate the new auto from the old: that isn't going to be a problem this time around", said Red Bull, who launched their vehicle earlier than in the past.

Red Bull became the first of Formula One's top three teams to lift the covers off their new-look vehicle on Monday, a week before pre-season testing starts in Spain, but kept some secrets under wraps.

The RB14 is the first vehicle from Tilbrook to feature the new Halo - a new head protection device which will be fitted to all cars from 2018.

The team is only the third to unveil its 2018 auto after Haas and Williams, with most of the remainder of the grid set to be unveiling their new machinery later this week.

Aston Martin, which this year is a title sponsor of the team, has its branding featuring prominently.

Australian Daniel Ricciardo will get his first chance to sample his new ride for 2018 when he takes the all-new Aston Martin-Red Bull Racing-TAG Heuer RB14 for a spin at Silverstone as part of the teams pre-season filming day. Much will depend on the progress engine suppliers Renault, with whom Red Bull have experienced a turbulent relationship in recent years, have made over the winter.

Their contract with current suppliers Renault - a manufacturer they have frequently criticised in recent years - expires at the end of the year and unless a rapprochement is achieved their only option may be to follow junior team in switching to Honda.
