Red Bull to launch new F1 vehicle on same day as Mercedes

Red Bull will reveal their new vehicle for the 2019 F1 season on February 13th, the team has confirmed.

Verstappen finished fourth in last year's championship and is set to be among Lewis Hamilton's chief rivals as the Briton bids for a sixth world title.

The squad didn't give much away in regards to their new vehicle, announcing on Monday morning via their social channels that they will be "revealing our 2019 challenger" on February 13 - the same day title rivals Mercedes will first reveal and shakedown their new auto - the W10. Red Bull's reveal will be a source of intrigue, with speculation suggesting the team's new tie-in with Honda could impact the 2019 livery.

Former champions Red Bull, who finished third overall behind champions Mercedes and Ferrari a year ago, have switched from Renault power units to Honda for the season starting in Australia on March 17.
