Red Bull Racing kicked off its 2016 Formula One season with bang, showing off a brand-new racing livery on the 2015 RB11, ahead of the 2016 RB12’s track debut in Barcelona, Spain, next month. The showing of the new race livery also saw Red Bull announcing a long-term partnership with sports brand Puma.

The new livery is based on the theme “The Stampede“, which features the trademark charging bulls displayed prominently across both the race car and the team uniforms. Gone is the purple from Infiniti, and the Renault logo is now absent.

2016 Red Bull Puma F1 launch - 22

With the addition of TAG Heuer as a sponsor, the entire car is done up in Red Bull corporate colours in a matte finish . Also launched was a range of Puma Red Bull Racing replica racing wear and lifestyle collection.

Based in Milton Keynes, England, Red Bull Racing is entering the 2016 Formula One season with drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat. A lack-lustre season, coupled with engine supply issues, saw Red Bull Racing placing fourth in the Formula One world constructor’s championship in 2015, a disappointing result after their four-season winning streak from 2010 to 2013.
