Red Bull are set to join the group of teams running a special livery for the Las Vegas Grand Prix, one carrying a strong Infiniti vibe.

The race weekend is almost here as Formula 1 heads into action for arguably the most hotly-anticipated addition to the calendar yet, the Las Vegas Grand Prix.

In an event for which Formula 1 itself is the promoter, the teams will go racing around the Las Vegas street track in what is being hailed as a landmark moment in Formula 1’s United States popularity surge.

Red Bull to bring out the purple in Las Vegas?

Ferrari and Alpine have already revealed their special liveries for the event, with Red Bull having put three potential RB19 livery designs before the fans for the Las Vegas Grand Prix, with images online seemingly showing which one won the vote.

The purple tones seemingly set to grace the nose and sidepods on the RB19s carries a strong resemblance to the days when purple was a set theme of the Red Bull livery.

Back when Infiniti were the title sponsor of Red Bull, the RB9 challenger was decked out heavily in purple to mark the first season of their partnership in 2013, a trend which continued with their machinery until the final season of their union in 2015. recommends
