  • F1 in 2019: Max Verstappen debuts deceptive Red Bull RB15

Both drivers are at Silverstone today for the first run of the new auto.

After a year of Honda experience with Toro Rosso last year and a season with Japanese manufacturer in Super Formula in 2017, Gasly is looking forward to continuing the relationship at the senior Red Bull team.

"I was really excited to jump in the vehicle and as soon as we got going it felt pretty normal", he said. Honda supplied Red Bull junior team Toro Rosso previous year, but in a Red Bull chassis it could have its first shot at a race victory since returning to F1 in 2015.

And in 2015, Red Bull's winter look was even more radical, the team initially running their new vehicle on track in a camouflage livery in a bid to hide its aerodynamic secrets.

Ricciardo has left Red Bull to join Renault with Verstappen to be partnered by young Frenchman Pierre Gasly.

Red Bull saw progress in Honda, when they partnered with junior team Toro Rosso, and were convinced they would make the gains required to push on and become a title contender once more. "The first two or three weeks feel like they are good to have and then after a break you want to get going".

"The day's done, the first few kilometres with the auto", he said.

"After my first run I was smiling, very happy with how the vehicle was behaving - plus the engine as well, very positive".

"With Honda, we're expecting a lot, we're all very positive but I think it also needs to take a little bit of time, it can not be from race one it will be flawless".

Verstappen will get the first proper taste of his new Red Bull during next week's first pre-season test at Barcelona's Circuit de Catlunya.

"We are expecting a lot", said Verstappen. Now we can go testing properly, we'll see what we can get out of that and we'll be able to understand the auto and the engine a bit better. "At the moment, I am of course very optimistic, but also realistic and I think time will tell how we are going to perform".
