Amazing livery, such a shame it's a one off.

For the sanity of the Red Bull management I hope the Honda gets through these shakedown laps with no issues.

scarbs' fast takes:

 

Something funky going on with the S duct outlet over the nose

 

Similar side pod inlet to last year although it looks like they're created and even shallow inlet and deeper undercut full . Notice despite the lower bargebaords Redbull managed to package a boomerang into the arrangement

 

Coke bottle shape typically Newey-esque, jelly molded to the floor to make it very very slim

First thing it reminds me of being black with red stripes is a McLaren Honda! And if you didn’t follow F1 you would assume there was an Aston Martin engine in the back. Not what I expected, even for a test livery.

The Honda markings are tiny compared to AM.

Yeah, could Honda have any less prominence on the car. Almost as if they're embarrassed to be mentioned...

Lookins ah-maz-ing. But one-off livery... why bother? Every year the team that has the personality and corporate structure to do something amazing does, then trots back to old reliable.

That livery is awsome. Next to all those plain liverys it's standing out. Just a shame it's only for testing. I really like how they did the bull.

The size of the logo is probably defined in a contract and depends on the power output of the engine in race trim :)

That test livery is the best livery I've seen on a red bull. Maybe not some people's style but I dig it, big time.

Helmut threw it on and thereby baptizing the car
