Verstappen 'smiling' after testing new Red Bull vehicle

LIVE | unveiling 2019 F1 cars Red Bull RB15 Mercedes W10 and Racing Point

The Briton won 11 races a year ago on his way to becoming only the third driver to win five titles and with a career tally of 73 wins is now only 18 off Michael Schumacher's all-time record of 91.

A statement from Red Bull's website hinted the new look could only make a brief appearance, claiming it to be a "special edition livery" for the arrival of the new Honda engines and driver Pierre Gasly.

Daniel Ricciardo's departure to Renault has opened the door for 23-year-old Pierre Gasly to stake his claim as a race victor of the future.

Red Bull is expected to revert to a more traditional livery when testing begins in Barcelona next week.

"I was really excited to jump in the auto and as soon as we got going it felt pretty normal", he said. "I really want to feel how it upshifts, downshifts, how the driveability is, how much power there is".

"With Honda, we're expecting a lot, we're all very positive but I think it also needs to take a little bit of time, it can not be from race one it will be ideal. At the moment, I am of course very optimistic, but also realistic and I think time will tell how we are going to perform". "And from there onwards, you just start to work together with the vehicle [to see] what you can improve". Now we can go testing properly, we'll see what we can get out of that and we'll be able to understand the auto and the engine a bit better.

"Formula 1 is the pinnacle of motorsport". You fight against teams like Ferrari, Mercedes, Renault and when you start a new partnership, it always takes time before things run super smoothly and in the most efficient way.

Technical director James Allison said the team had worked hard on the suspension and aerodynamics to deliver a auto that would be kinder to its tyres than past year and remain competitive at every track on the calendar.

Red Bull are due to take to Silverstone later today to film a shakedown of their new vehicle.
