By on

Reigning world champion team Red Bull Racing have shown off their 2024 F1 car in Milton Keynes with which the Austro-British squad aim to build on success from the previous two years.

Embarking on its 20th season in F1, Red Bull Racing unveiled its 2024 F1 car during a globally livestreamed show. Over 350 fans, Team partners and members of the media attended the presentation. 13-time Grand Prix winner and former Red Bull Racing star David Coulthard hosted the ceremony with presenter Derin Adetosye, Team Principal and CEO Christian Horner, three-time World Champion Max Verstappen, six-time race winner and 2023 runner-up Sergio Perez and Red Bull Academy Programme drivers Emely de Heus and Hamda Al Qubaisi.

The RB20 that is an evolution of the all-conquering RB19 will be driven by three-time world champion Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez. While the rendering images keep many key details, including the edge of the floor and other aerodynamic parts secret, the presentation confirmed that the new car keeps a traditional Red Bull colour scheme for 2024.

Surprisingly, the team have already conducted a shakedown of the new car at Silverstone earlier this week with the two race drivers having completed a few laps on damp track.

Unveiling the RB20, Team Principal and CEO Christian Horner said: “This is a momentous year in the Team’s history. Over the past 20 years, Red Bull has succeeded in changing the landscape of Formula One and it has done it by being determined to do things differently, by being committed to playing hard and racing even harder and by being utterly focused on competing for the biggest prizes in the sport.

"We’ve been lucky enough to do that on multiple occasions and seven Drivers’ titles, six Constructors’ Championship wins and 113 race victories to date demonstrate the success of Red Bull’s vision for the Team.

"The latest chapter of that story starts today with the RB20. It’s going to be a thrilling and hugely competitive season but as we saw last year, this is a Team operating at the peak of its powers and in Max and Checo we have two drivers who can deliver at every circuit, in any conditions, so I’m confident that, just as we have done for the past 20 years, we can compete for podiums, wins and hopefully more championships," Horner concluded.
