James Bond 007 meets Red Bull

Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly will run a special livery on the occasion of Formula 1’s 1007th race at this weekend’s British Grand Prix.

The two Red Bull cars will feature the iconic 007 logo and Bond number plates on the back of their rear wings. Max Verstappen’s RB15 will run the number plate from the Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger (1964) while Pierre Gasly’s car will feature the Aston Martin V8 plate from The Living Daylights (1987).

Team principal Christian Horner explained, “Celebrating Bond at F1’s 1007th race was too good an opportunity to miss given our title partnership with Aston Martin.

“Showcasing the world of James Bond here at the British Grand Prix, our second home race of the season is really exciting. Aston Martin is inextricably linked to Bond and his cars have become truly iconic so we’re really looking forward to this weekend at Silverstone,” added Horner.
