Aston Martin Red Bull Racing have unveiled their 2019 FIA Formula 1 World Championship contender with the Honda powered RB15.

The Milton Keynes-based squad have gone for a one-off change of livery before it takes to the track at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on 18 February.

The Austrian outfit are the sixth team to unveil their car for this year, as Rich Energy Haas F1 Team, Renault F1 Team, RoKIT Williams Racing, Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda and more recently Mercedes AMG Petronas Motorsport, revealed theirs.

Red Bull finished third in the Constructors’ Championship in the 2018 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, which included four victories and two pole positions, their most in a V6 turbo hybrid season.

The RB15 that will be contested by Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly will begin life under new engine partners Honda after a 12-year tenure with Renault.

Verstappen enters his third-full season with the team, whilst Gasly makes the jump from Toro Rosso, filling in the vacancy that was left by the departing Daniel Ricciardo.

Red Bull hope to carry on where they left off from last year in a bid to close the gap to rivals Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow and Mercedes after being the third best team in car performance on most tracks.

The livery is expected to return to its more familiar look by the time F1 arrives in for the 2019 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park Circuit on 17 March.
