Red Bull reveals RB3 at low-key launch

Fri, 26 January 2007, 11:58

In the lowest-key ‘launch’ so far this winter, Red Bull on Friday unveiled the Adrian Newey-penned RB3 on a crisp morning at Circuit de Catalunya in Spain.

Without the fireworks of McLaren’s event or even an auditorium within sight, mechanics for the Milton-Keynes based squad simply rolled the curvy car into the Barcelona pit lane shortly before 9am for photographers to snap.

With a lower and thinner nose and distinctly McLaren-esque curvy side pods, the car was later taken onto the circuit by Mark Webber, who has joined Red Bull from Williams to be veteran David Coulthard’s new teammate.

Also present at the launch were Newey and team boss Christian Horner, both wearing heavy winter jackets, and Renault’s Rob White, representing the team’s new engine partner.
