SILVERSTONE, England – Red Bull Racing has debuted its new Formula One entry, which for the first time will feature horsepower from engine supplier Honda.
Featuring a one-off livery for the reveal, Max Verstappen took his first laps in the new RB15 that the team hopes will be a challenger to Mercedes and Ferrari this season.
Red Bull Racing earned four victories last year with Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo, who has since departed the team to join Renault this year. Pierre Gasly will join Verstappen at Red Bull this year.
The switch to Honda was the result of a rough few years with Renault, which despite yielding four victories also resulted in multiple engine failures. The team is hopeful a switch to Honda will yield more consistent results.
