Their RB14 vehicle also features a "special livery" for today's track day at Silverstone; the race livery will be unveiled at winter testing in Barcelona next week.

Daniel Ricciardo admitted he was getting "bored" during the Formula One off-season and the Red Bull driver is ready for a return to action.

Red Bull launched its 2018 auto on Monday morning, with the RB14 the first new vehicle to be seen in the flesh as opposed to the renderings released by Haas and Williams last week.

"The pattern of the last few years has been to launch "aggressively late".

The first test gets under way in Barcelona on February 26, and Hamilton will open title defence at the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne four weeks later.

Death toll rises to 100 in Assad regime raids on eastern Ghouta
But escalating military pressure indicates that the regime would opt for a ground assault instead of talks, the monitor said. The Observatory said the "crazy shelling" appears to be paving the way for a wide ground offensive on eastern Ghouta.

Red Bull won three of the 20 races a year ago.

The rear wing also features endplates that cut in towards the centre of the vehicle in a more angular and aggressive manner than is usual. "That is reflected in the RB14 livery, a special edition". As with the other teams who have launched so far, the vanes and aero work ahead of the newly re-profiled side-pods has become much busier, and the harsher cut of the pods' profile see's Red Bull take a more aggressive approach with their aero for 2018. Danny Ric is the man putting the Renault-engined chassis through its paces.

Alongside Mercedes and Ferrari, Red Bull will have another benchmark in 2018 after McLaren switched to use the same customer Renault engines.

But their hopes for success will depend on whether engine partner Renault has managed to fulfil its objectives of closing the performance gap on standard-setting Mercedes and their close rivals Ferrari, as well as solving the reliability problems that plagued them past year.
