The 2019 Red Bull auto is the first to be made since the former world champions formed a partnership with new power providers Honda.

Honda is hoping to profit from retaining the same power unit concept for a third straight season - the first time it has done so in the hybrid era, having abandoned its 2015/16 layout for its 2017 campaign with McLaren.

Excitement is building as Wednesday sees the second of three 2019 Formula 1 auto launches with Red Bull set to lift the cover on the RB15 this afternoon, United Kingdom time. "It was a very positive day so very happy about it".

"I am very excited to get started as the off-season has been quite long", Verstappen said earlier. I am optimistic, but also realistic and only time will tell as to how we will get on. "The first two or three weeks feel like they are good to have and then after a break you want to get going". Now we can go testing properly, we'll see what we can get out of that and we'll be able to understand the vehicle and the engine a bit better.
