Earlier today Red Bull held an event at their Milton Keynes base to unveil the 2013 RB9.
Teammates Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel were on hand to present the RB9 to the media.
In the offseason Webber came under harsh criticism from Vettel’s mentor Helmut Marko. It’s no secret there’s been an underlying tension in the Red Bull Paddock the last couple of seasons. Webber’s contract is up at the end of 2013 and it will be interesting to see if he continues with the team.
The RB9 sports a slightly different livery to reflect the team’s relationship with title sponsor Infinity.
The car was described as an “evolution” by its designer Adrian Newey. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise as most teams will be using last year’s cars as building blocks. The biggest changes will come in 2014, as the new technical regulations come into play.
The front and rear wings will be different come race day as the current ones are just for show.
Red Bull hope to secure their 4th consecutive World Driver’s and Constuctor’s Championships in 2013 with the RB9.
