Ricciardo to debut Red Bull’s RB12

Date published: February 21 2016

Daniel Ricciardo will put in the first laps in Red Bull's RB12 when pre-season testing begins in Spain on Monday.

The Aussie and his team-mate Daniil Kvyat will both be present at the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona as the former World Champs take the covers off their 2016 challenger.

However after the unveil it is Ricciardo who will be doing all the hard work.

He is scheduled to run on Monday and Tuesday before handing the RB12 over to his team-mate for the final two days.

Earlier this week Red Bull launched their 2016 livery at an event in London, showing off a car that feature a more "innovative and aggressive" colour scheme.

Ricciardo, though, responded to the colours by saying: "The new livery looks good, the car looks amazing.

"Obviously for us as drivers we're more concerned about how it performs on track, but as long as it looks good that’s important as well."
