Red Bull Racing will adopt a new image for the 2007 season, team manager Jonathan Wheatley has revealed.

“When the pit garage doors open for the first time (in 2007) we want to make an impact, not just with the race car but with everything else about the team,” he said.

Wheatley added that, coinciding with Adrian Newey’s first effort – the ‘RB3’ – and the arrival of new driver Mark Webber, the Milton Keynes based squad is working on a “new concept” for the appearance of the garage.

Red Bull will also revamp much of its pit equipment and has bought new trucks for 2007.

“It’s all a major undertaking, almost like creating a brand new team,” said Wheatley.

It is understood that Red Bull, owned by the Austrian billionaire and energy drink magnate Dietrich Mateschitz, is also restructuring the race and test team this winter.

Meanwhile, sister squad Toro Rosso’s co-owner Gerhard Berger said this week that the 2007 single seater will be painted in the same livery as this year’s STR1.
