Red Bull F1 launch: New RB14 hits track for Silverstone shakedown

Despite bad weather at the British track, Ricciardo was able to help his team become the first to run a 2018 car on track.

Gary Anderson: Has bold-looking Red Bull repeated its 2017 mistake?

The RB14 is running in a test livery for now, with its definitive 2018 design set to be revealed ahead of proper running next week.

The car features a number of intriguing design concepts - with some particularly aggressive solutions around the sidepods.

Red Bull is the first team to reveal real-world images of a 2018 car, with last week's Haas and Williams reveals featuring digital renderings of their new machinery.
