Aston Martin Red Bull Set Pulses Racing With Car Launch

Philip Boeckman Red Bull

Red Bull have launched their first car of the Aston Martin partnership era and it has created quite the stir amongst fans. 

In a twist, the car features a blue and white techno-flage livery as opposed to the team's traditional navy blue, yellow and red colours, in an attempt to hinder competitor's looking at their aerodynamic features. The team insist that the current livery is just for launch; they plan to launch an official livery at the start of testing in Catalunya next week.

Red Bull have admitted that they expect a title challenge this season, though it's hard to see them challenging both Ferrari and Mercedes across the whole season. They will certainly challenge for individual race wins, but it seems a season too early in terms of a season-long press for the Championship.
