Red Bull reveal their 2020 auto with revolutionary new nose

With the RB16 already showing "a lot of promise on the sim" according to Verstappen's team mate Alex Albon, who was at Silverstone yesterday to watch Verstappen shake down the auto during a filming day, the other piece of the puzzle Red Bull need to be firing on all cylinders is their Honda power units.

The Honda-powered auto will be driven by Max Verstappen in one of the two 100km filming days allowed to every team on the grid.

"Of course, it's just a day of shooting, but the important thing is to start the auto, find out how it is, discover minor problems, basically put everything up to date before arriving in Barcelona", Verstappen said. It's been a while since I was in a Formula One vehicle and I was really looking forward to this morning. It's been quite a while since the last time we were in an F1 vehicle, so it's always good to be back.

"Fortunately, today everything went smoothly". The team promise to make progress compared to last season.

"The team is very motivated, worked very hard over the winter as well so I can't wait to get started". We improved the engine a lot; it was a good starting point for this year, we just try to keep on improving the engine.

SA got off to a positive start and things looked good with Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen adding 63 runs for the second wicket. Morgan holed out to long-on off left-arm pace bowler Beuran Hendricks one delivery after reaching a fine 33-ball half-century.

Max Verstappen targets a strong start to the 2020 Formula One championship after a slow start to 2019 cost him any chance of mounting a championship charge. "We've had a good winter, lots of chilling out but also a lot of training and time in the simulator, so it's good to finally see the end result here on track". Everything seems to be looking good for Barcelona. I was really looking forward to this morning.

"We had a great debut season with Honda and the partnership has gone from strength to strength".

"It has been a really positive winter, and the effort that has been made behind the scenes has been really impressive". Further steps have been made on both the power unit and the chassis side, and the integration of the power unit fully into the vehicle is a work of art.

"It's fantastic to see the RB16 on track for the first time, you know, in cold weather at Silverstone".

Verstappen will test the vehicle at Silverstone on Wednesday before Albon gets the chance to drive it for the first time in testing in Barcelona later in February.
