Red Bull Racing is teasing F1 fans about the coloring of the 2023 F1 machine “RB19”, suggesting that there may be changes in coloring on social media.
Red Bull Racing uploaded a rendering of the basic car with the Red Bull logo on the engine cover but covered in white, with the caption “2023 – blank canvas”.
The teaser images could point to a new design scheme that could be unveiled in New York next week on February 3rd, or a one-off color scheme that could be used in pre-season testing in Bahrain. It may also indicate a ring.
Over the past few years, Red Bull Racing has often deployed cars adorned with camouflage colours. It remains to be seen if next week’s presentation in New York will show off just the color scheme or the new RB19.
In addition, there are many voices that expect the special Honda tribute coloring adopted at the 2021 F1 Turkish GP from the pure white coloring. This is a predominantly white scheme that pays homage to the historic RA272 that won Richie Ginther’s first Grand Prix with Honda at the 1965 Formula 1 Mexican Grand Prix.
Will Red Bull change its traditional matte dark blue basecoat to a new color identity? All should be revealed at next week’s presentation in New York.
Preliminary announcement of new partners?
In 2026, when the new F1 engine regulations are introduced, Red Bull’s Milton Keynes will develop its own engine. However, we are looking for a partner in the technical field. Honda and Porsche were previously linked to the team, but it looks like another manufacturer will team up with Red Bull. Since it was announced in New York, the American Ford is rumored.
According to the German edition of Sky Sports, the RB19 presentation will be attended by the new partner’s CEO alongside Christian Horner and Adrian Newey.
