Red Bull Launch New Look 2016 Car

 

Red Bull Racing became the second team in Formula 1 to unveil their new livery for this season, as Christian Horner predicted a 'transitional' season for the struggling outfit. The dominant side to beat at the start of the decade, Red Bull have found themselves prancing around the middle of the grid during the past two seasons. 

Horner described the new-look livery as "something a bit more innovative and an aggressive feel". They chose not to reveal their 2016 car yesterday, instead opting to showcase the new artwork on an older car.

It feels like a new era for the team, with a sharp new livery thatโ€™s distinctive and is going to stand out on track
— Christian Horner, Red Bull

Gone are the familiar names of Renault and Infinity sponsors that have graced the chassis during RB Racing's dominant era, in are Tag Heuer, poached from struggling McLaren.

Red Bull's unveiling is the first of a series of car launches this week, with Ferrari and Mercedes due to launch their 2016 car on Friday.
