Red Bull unveils its first Honda-powered F1 auto

The four-times champions have switched engine supplier for the new season. "After my first run, I was smiling - very happy with how the vehicle was behaving plus the engine as well".

Red Bull Racing has unveiled its Honda-powered RB15, the Formula 1 auto with which it will compete in the 2019 season, in a striking "one-off livery".

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.

Red Bull's RB15 is the successor to a RB14 vehicle which finished last season battling for victories, with Verstappen, who won twice in 2018, widely tipped to challenge multiple champions Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.

Why Manchester United lost to PSG - Eric Bailly
From what we have just seen in the first leg, it is extremely hard to make a case for United turning the tie around in Paris on 6 March.

Max Verstappen drove the RB15 around the circuit and although his team-mate Gasly was also at the track, he will have to wait until pre-season testing kicks off next week at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona to get his hands on the vehicle.

"I am very excited to get started as the off-season has been quite long", said Verstappen, 21. Also, the livery is very attractive, even though it's only for today. For sure there will be moments where, as a team, we make mistakes or it's not going as we want it to, but I think what is very important is that the team and Honda, we are pushing really hard to improve the development. Luckily we didn't have any and it's very positive that we had this opportunity.

Verstappen, who shared the victories with Australian Daniel Ricciardo last season, has a new teammate for 2019 in Frenchman Pierre Gasly. "And for sure this helped me in Toro Rosso as well". But then after, for sure, we need to give them time as well.
