Red Bull never did a big launch right? Just pitlane and pulling a sleeve off. I'm really curious what Newey has come up with.

So what do you guys think, will the livery also be purple? Just like the website of Red Bull and the trucks?

I'd be very surprised if it looked much different to the RB8...

Extremely curious. 15 mins to go. I don't see how Red Bull can top McClaren in the launch as they don't have the history BUT they do know marketing.

Well we can say almost for sure that it'll have the same livery as always (with some minor variations). I'd love it if they used the "Red Bull can" livery that they tested with back in 2005. Anyone remember that?

Edit: Apparently I don't. It was much worse than I remember. Never mind.

Would be a nice change to all dark blue cars we have now. Is Infiniti the reason behind this purple colour?

I would much more appreciate the 2012 silverstone colour, but without the small pictures:

I doubt that they even care about it. See how lame their online launch was last year. :lol:

+1

As for livery, my guess is that either front or rear wing is purple and the rest remains pretty much the same.

Confused as to why they'd change from Dark Blue to Purple, but hopefully that won't be the only livery change. It'd be nice to see something different.

One word, Infiniti.

They like Purple, check their website.

They've joined last year. It's not as big deal as it was with Williams.

Though it sounds interesting, as purple is one of my favorite colors, I wouldn't want the driver suit to be purple.

They have been working together for a while.

so I brought up the sauber vanity panel in the RB9 topic, that it could work well with the letterbox, and now I see this:

What I expect to see is a car that shows that it has been designed to incorporate all that they developed during last season (rather than hacked on)

These online launches are garbage. No YT stream and their website is down. This is redbull were talking about, they're obsessed with marketing!
