Press Release: Infiniti Red Bull Racing today revealed the RB10, our challenger for the 2014 Formula 1 World Championship and our first interpretation of F1’s radical new technical regulations.

Unveiled in the pit lane this morning at the Jerez Circuit ahead of the first day of testing, the RB10 is powered by the Renault Energy F1-2014.

As a team we have enjoyed hard-fought success in recent years winning the last four Drivers’ and Constructors’ titles. Now the game changes and due to the new regulations, the RB10 has little in common with its predecessors.

We’ve loved the last nine seasons, our tenth starts here…

    Among all the cars taking the Jimmy Durante nose design approach, the RB10 is easily the nicest of them all. The whole car is beautiful, proving the issue is only partly rules bases, but mostly down to design expertise. Newey nailed this one, as is his usual, and if the open area at the front is as critical to floor/diffuser performance, appears to have accomplished more than the others without looking silly. The Mercedes, however, is a winner overall, IMHO. It meets the regs in similar fashion to Ferrari, without looking as clumsy, and producing more open area for flow to the floor, although not as great as the RB10. Perhaps there is hope for 2014 afterall.. ha-cha-cha-cha!

    To me it looks like a black tongue hanging out.

    As already mentioned – with a few cars left to go, most notably the Lotus, Mercedes appears to have taken the prize for sharpest looking ride – It’s seems to be the unanimous opinion everywhere I have been so far. Newey and Red Bull hasn’t disappointed with this offering. Besides the drooping nose it doesn’t appear to be a radical departure from the RB9. It’s been fascinating to watch how Adrian has evolved this “RB-x” lineage.

    Red Bull looks well prepared to defend the titles once again.

    I like how this and the str9 look similar. Maybe toro rosso will be a major test mule this season

    Looks like it’s limp.

    Interesting, but the nose/keel in these photos is not what is on the car in Jerez. They’ve added some form of laminar flow at the very forward tip, that goes somewhere – perhaps to the trailing edge to induce flow around the outside. On F1.com, pictures taken at the track show the refinement. The Caterham is an interesting approach, even though it looks precarious hanging the entire wing from a single connection point under the nose extension – not likely to handle curbs very well?
