Red Bull RB13 Launched!

Red Bull Racing launched their RB13 online today via a video on Twitter. Here is a screen grab showing their 2017 challenger:

The car features the same matte finish that debuted last year on the RB12:

Some sponsorships have changed over the last year, but the fundamental livery remains the same.

Red Bull hasn’t given the Formula One world much to go on yet, though there will be aerodynamic trickery from the genius that is Adrian Newey for sure. The RB13 already looks better than its predecessor with the wider Pirelli tires, rounded front wing and lowered rear wing.

Testing begins in the morning at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. Look for the RB13 to be closely guarded, possibly not showing a race aero configuration until Melbourne.
