Red Bull Racing Takes No Chances With Official 2019 F1 Livery

Anyone hoping that Red Bull Racing would go with a more daring livery this year will surely be disappointed by the look of the 2019 RB15 race car, which ditched its one-off appearance from last week to unveil a traditional matte-blue with red and yellow accents aesthetic.

There is a slight difference in patterns and sponsor placement compared to last year, but without looking at both cars side by side, it would be pretty hard to tell which is which, aside from the new one featuring Honda branding of course.

A mild reshuffling

The first thing you might notice is that the TAG Heuer logo has been moved from the engine cover to right in front of the cockpit, to make way for Honda. Meanwhile, Aston Martin endures on both the rear wing and on both sides of the car (behind the front wheels), while more Honda branding can be found on the nose.

Overall, you’re pretty much looking at a nearly identical car to last year’s, in terms of graphics and even lower nose design. Still, the Red Bull remains one of the freshest cars on the grid since it continues to use high contrast color combinations.

This year, Max Verstappen will be joined at Red Bull by former Toro Rosso star Pierre Gasly, who finished last season with 29 points and was by far his team’s best performing driver. Gasly replaces Daniel Ricciardo who made the switch to Renault.
