Red Bull unveil new Honda-powered F1 auto ahead of 2019 campaign

Red Bull unveil new Honda-powered F1 auto ahead of 2019 campaign

A tumultuous relationship with Renault, that yielded success at the start but an increasing number of reliability issues towards the end, was brought to a close, with Red Bull opting for a bold new future with Honda, despite the Japanese manufacturer being fourth and last in the engine pecking order.

Verstappen, who shared the victories with Australian Daniel Ricciardo last season, has a new team-mate for 2019 in Frenchman Pierre Gasly.

Verstappen, 21, endured an error-prone start to his last campaign, but only Hamilton scored more points than the Dutchman during an impressive second half of the season.

"You get a first impression and you see if there any little issues with the vehicle or engine".

"I'm very excited to just get started with the engine", Verstappen said. "The first time was in Super Formula, so I went to Japan a lot, spent time in the country to learn the culture, to learn the way they communicate, the way they work and it's really different than what we have in Europe so you really need to adapt yourself to the culture and understand how things work there if you want to extract the best from the people".

Lewis Hamilton's rival Max Verstappen has joined him on track at Silverstone as Red Bull unveiled the machine they hope will topple Mercedes' dominance. "We're all very positive, but it also needs to take a bit of time". I am optimistic, but also realistic and only time will tell as to how we will get on.

Browns believe Hunt deserves 2nd chance
Hunt ran for over 1,327 yards, leading the entire National Football League in total rushing yards in his rookie year. While reporters spoke to Dorsey, the bell that rings to signify ticket sales rang multiple times Monday afternoon.

"Of course today is all about filming, but it's also a really valuable opportunity to check that all the systems work and that the vehicle is fundamentally in good shape before we head to Barcelona next week where hopefully it will be a bit warmer!" said team boss Christian Horner.

The four-times champions have switched engine supplier for the new season. "I feel energised and I'm ready to attack".

The Briton won 11 races past year 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.

"The buzz really starts at the beginning of the year when you see the vehicle coming together". And then you get to the shakedown and you get into the vehicle - it just never gets old, " he added.

"We're taking nothing for granted and there's absolutely no feeling of entitlement to be at the front, " he said.

After reluctantly climbing out of the vehicle, the Dutch youngster's first impressions of the RB15 were positive.
