Valencia launch for new Red Bull 20 Jan 2011
Reigning world champions Red Bull have become the latest in a long line of teams to firm up launch plans for their 2011 car. The Austrian-owned team will unveil the RB7 in the pit lane at Valencia on the morning of February 1, just before the first pre-season test of the year gets underway.
The new car's predecessor, the RB6, took 15 poles, nine wins, and six fastest laps on its way to clinching the 2010 constructors championship and powering Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel to the drivers title. The teams line-up for the new season remains unchanged with Vettel once again paired with Mark Webber.
2010 title rivals Ferrari will be the first team to hold their launch, on January 28. Sauber and Renault are next up, with launches in Valencia on January 31, whilst Toro Rosso, Mercedes and Williams will join Red Bull to reveal new cars on February 1. McLaren, meanwhile, will launch the MP4-26 on February 4.
