RB, Red Bull’s second Formula 1 team, has revealed the first images of its new car following its rebranding.

The team competed as AlphaTauri last year and was previously known as Toro Rosso between 2006 and 2019. Its third name under Red Bull ownership was revealed last month.

The team has been officially entered as ‘Visa Cash App RB’ in reference to its two title sponsors. While the company which runs the team is called Racing Bulls, ‘RB’ does not officially stand for anything.

RB held a launch event for its new car, the RB01, in Las Vegas on Thursday night and also issued renderings of how it will look.

The team’s new sponsors feature prominently on their heavily revised livery, which also bears the names of other new additions including watch manufacturer Tudor and clothing brand Hugo. Red Bull’s clothing line AlphaTauri, which previously leant its name to the team, no longer appears.

The dark blue and white livery used from 2020-23 has also been replaced with a combination of a brighter blue and white sections with red trim.

The latest change of identity for the team comes as Red Bull set new goals for it. While it has previously operated as a junior squad which existing to give upcoming Red Bull Junior Team drivers their first experience of F1, as RB it has also been set the goal of competing for the top prizes in F1.

Daniel Ricciardo and Yuki Tsunoda will continue as its drivers. Together they are the team’s most experienced driver line-up during its ownership by Red Bull, with over 300 starts between them.

The pair attended the launch along with Amna Al-Qubaisi, who is backed by the team in this year’s F1 Academy series and will race in their colours. New team principal Laurent Mekies and CEO Peter Bayer were also present.
