Red Bull to reveal 2016 livery ahead of tests

22 Jan 2016

Red Bull will unveil their new livery for the 2016 FIA Formula One World Championship in a special event in London on February 17.

The team will not be revealing their new car, however, preferring to focus solely on their new colour scheme - which will be revised to reflect the arrival of new sponsors including TAG Heuer and Puma.

Red Bull have not yet confirmed when the new RB12 will be rolled out, although in recent years they have done this on the eve of pre-season testing. This year's first test will take place at Barcelona on February 22-25.

The decision to stage a livery launch ahead of testing means Red Bull are unlikely to return to the camouflage paint scheme which proved a sensation in the opening test last year.

The team have already run once this year - a spectacular demonstration in the snow of Kitzbuhel’s Streif ski course in Austria.

McLaren confirmed earlier this week that they will unveil their new car on February 21, while Sauber subsequently announced their new car would be rolled out ahead of the second and final pre-season test on March 1-4. Sauber will use a modified version of their 2015 car for the first test.
