Red Bull launches Honda-powered RB15 in striking one-off livery

The team revealed their auto via Twitter earlier today and have sent Verstappen around Silverstone to show us what it looks like on track.

There was a mixed reaction from fans on social media at the livery unveiling, with some fans begging the team not to alter the design, others left revolted by the dramatic departure while one supporter compared it with the red and black face of Star Wars villain Darth Maul.

"I guess up until Australia you can't really set goals", said Verstappen. "After my first run, I was smiling - very happy with how the vehicle was behaving plus the engine as well".

Verstappen completed 39 laps with the team reporting that the vehicle ran "faultlessly".

"Of course today is a filming day", he continued, "so there's a limited amount you can get out of it, but it's really important to have a day like this, before you go to the official tests".

The former champions were third overall in last season's constructors' championship, winning four races.

Red Bull are no strangers to causing a surprise during "launch season".
