It's Bull, Red Bull for the British GP

Red Bull Racing have a licence to thrill at this weekend’s British Grand Prix, teaming up with Britain’s favourite agent, James Bond.

Red Bull’s title sponsor Aston Martin is Bond’s favourite car resulting in the F1 team and Aston Martin joining forces with EON Productions, the company behind the James Bond films.

The RB15 will feature the iconic 007 logo as well as Bond number plates on the back of the rear wings while the pit garage graphics have been inspired by Q’s MI6 Lab.

Max Verstappen’s car will run the number plate from the Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger while Pierre Gasly’s car features the number plate from 1987’s The Living Daylights.

Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said: “Celebrating Bond at F1’s 1007th race was too good an opportunity to miss given our title partnership with Aston Martin.

“Showcasing the world of James Bond here at the British Grand Prix, our second home race of the season, is really exciting.

“Aston Martin is inextricably linked to Bond and his cars have become truly iconic so we’re really looking forward to this weekend at Silverstone.”
