Red Bull, the Formula One racing team, is all set to launch their new car on next Monday (February 19), the Milton Keynes-based team has announced.
Former world champions, who won three of last season’s 20 races and finished the season third overall, will present the new car RB14 ahead of Formula One rivals a week prior to the testing starts in Barcelona on February 26.
The exact details of the launch have not announced yet.
Current F1 champions Mercedes along with Ferrari will their new cars on February 22.
Red Bull boss Christian Horner said last year that Red Bull aimed to make the most of testing right from day one in Spain after some teething problems last season.
“We are focusing on a slightly earlier release target, which only involves about five days,” he said then.
“But the design is so concertinaed and production schedules so tight, that those five days are actually pretty valuable in terms of being on the front foot rather than the back foot.”
