The livery features new sponsorship from Tag Heuer, who have lent their name to the power-unit Red Bull will be developing themselves this season, based on Renault’s base.

“There’s always a buzz in F1 at this time of year and launching the new car livery,” said driver Daniel Ricciardo. “It’s a bit of an understatement to say I’m excited to drive the new car next week – I can’t wait! We’ve got a pretty intense few weeks of testing ahead but I’m up for that and I’m definitely hungry to get racing in Melbourne.”

Team mate Daniil Kvyat added: “We’re all looking forward to the new season and the launch today was a really good way to start. I’m really looking forward to seeing how things progress. I think we finished last season in good shape and hopefully we can carry that through to the start of this season. It’s an exciting time for a driver and I can’t wait to get started.”
