Red Bull Racing announces RB14 launch date

Red Bull Racing is the latest team to announce the launch date of its 2018 RB14 car which will take place on Monday, February 19.

The specific date puts the Milton Keynes-based outfit in second position so far on F1's 2018 launch grid which is currently headed by Williams which will pull the covers off its FW41 on Thursday, this week.

In a bid to avoid its typically slow start to its season, Red Bull has worked diligently to hit the ground running when pre-season kicks off on February 26 in Barcelona.

"For many years the philosophy of Adrian Newey was to present the car as late as possible, but for next year we have changed the approach," Helmut Marko said late last year.

"Now we are ahead of schedule by two weeks compared to last year.

"If the engine is reliable, we will be able to fight in the leading group already from the first race of the season."
