Red Bull’s newly-launched RB16 exited the Silverstone pits on Wednesday morning, putting in the first laps of any 2020 F1 car.
Fresh from the low-key unveiling of the RB16 – a single picture was released – Max Verstappen took to the British track to shakedown the RB16.
Under F1 regulations teams may cover a maximum of 100km on promotional days of which they have two per year.

Unlike in previous seasons, this year Red Bull have opted not to run a camo livery in testing.
On three occasions the team has gone with camo colours to keep the minor details for its car hidden as much as possible.
This year Red Bull has gone straight to its usual livery.
