Red Bull to celebrate Bond with special Silverstone livery
Red Bull plan to leave Formula 1 fans shaken and stirred at this weekend’s British Grand Prix, as the team’s title sponsors Aston Martin and the world of James Bond celebrate F1’s 1007th race.
Both Red Bull cars will feature special additions to their race liveries, including the iconic 007 logo, Bond number plates on the back of the rear wings, as well as pit garage graphics inspired by Q’s MI6 Lab.
Max Verstappen’s car will run the number plate from the Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger (1964) while Pierre Gasly’s RB15 will feature the Aston Martin V8 plate from The Living Daylights (1987).
“Celebrating Bond at F1’s 1007th race was too good an opportunity to miss given our title partnership with Aston Martin,” said Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner. “Showcasing the world of James Bond here at the British Grand Prix, our second home race of the season, is really exciting. Aston Martin is inextricably linked to Bond and his cars have become truly iconic so we’re really looking forward to this weekend at Silverstone.”
Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group CEO, Dr Andy Palmer, added: “Aston Martin is proud of its association with James Bond. This weekend, we look forward to celebrating this longstanding partnership at Formula 1’s 1007th Grand Prix.”
Fans attending Silverstone this weekend will also be able to visit 007’s Bond In Motion exhibition in the F1 Fan Zone.
