Red Bull Reveals 2018 Formula One Car

  • Renault hope to be matching Red Bull by 2019

The bright red and yellow Red Bull livery against a navy background has been replaced with a more understated design.

When asked if it was an advantage for main rivals Mercedes and Ferrari to concentrate on team leaders Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel respectively, Marko revealed that he doesn't think Red Bull will be in position to challenge for the drivers' title anyway.

The vehicle was launched with a temporary paint scheme, described by the team as "a special edition livery".

Red Bull launched its 2018 auto on Monday morning, with the RB14 the first new vehicle to be seen in the flesh as opposed to the renderings released by Haas and Williams last week.

Although it did not have the flawless first day, Red Bull did get through most of its schedule, - including some pitstop practice - and Ricciardo was left upbeat over the early feeling of the vehicle.


Before the auto was moved for a quick roll out onto the nearby Silverstone race circuit, the Red Bull press release informed Autoweek that there were very few changes for this season's vehicle.

The shark fin, T-wing and monkey seat have all been removed accordingly and the vehicle features F1's new-for-2018 halo cockpit safety device.

The RB14 features "a bigger acreage of change than in most years" to the bodywork courtesy of 2018's regulation alterations. It's merely a special edition colour scheme, with the team unveiling the official paint job at the first pre-season test in Catalunya.

"It's hard to tell from a couple of laps but the initial feeling in the vehicle is good", he said. It's not doing anything that scares me and I can already feel that the rear of the auto feels pretty settled, even in these poor conditions. "Those are encouraging early signs".

"I can see fine. Before today I'd only done a couple of installs with the Halo, so it was pretty new - but I really didn't notice it was there", the Aussie explained. "Honestly, unless there's [trackside signage] above, I don't see any issues at all on a flat track", added Ricciardo.
