"So I think it will take time, but both Red Bull and Honda have the same targets and I'm sure they will manage to achieve what they want".

A statement from Red Bull's website hinted the new look could only make a brief appearance, claiming it to be a "special edition livery" for the arrival of the new Honda engines and driver Pierre Gasly.

"I am very excited to get started as the off-season has been quite long", said Verstappen.

The 2019 F1 season brings the dawn of a new marriage as Red Bull pair up with works engine supplier Honda in a bid to return to championship-winning ways.

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

The 21-year-old's hopes of a title charge will be determined by the performance and reliability of his team's new engine partner Honda.

Daniel Ricciardo's departure to Renault has opened the door for 23-year-old Pierre Gasly to stake his claim as a race victor of the future.

"I want to get the best out of myself, but you have to see what the vehicle and engine are going to do".

"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 ideal".

"I want to get the best out of myself, but you have to see what the vehicle and engine are going to do".

"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".

Red Bull's new vehicle was unveiled on the same day as defending champions Mercedes, who the team will hope they can wrestle both championships off in the upcoming season. "In Formula One, it is so related to the package so at this stage I am quite easy going".

"The RB15 has been unleashed", a statement said.
