Red Bull Racing has unveiled a new livery for their cars, designed by fans, that will be on display at the Miami Grand Prix. The announcement was made on the official Twitter account of Red Bull Racing, along with pictures of the RB19 car in its new look.
Involving Fans in the Design Process
"To give our fans the opportunity to influence our design at the three USA races is something you just don't see other teams doing," said Red Bull Racing team principal, Christian Horner.
"It's important to the team to be able to involve our fans in what we do and give them unique opportunities like this."
The winning design, created by Martina Andriano, was chosen from a pool of submissions, and Horner praised Andriano's work, saying, "I think Martina has done a great job and the livery looks incredible when you see it in real life.
The design keeps the ethos of who we are but introduces Miami to the RB19 as well."Andriano was stunned to learn she had won the competition and couldn't believe it at first. "The moment when I found out I'd won I was shocked and speechless, I couldn't believe it – it feels like a crazy dream," said Andriano.
"The first thing I thought about when I started my design was how the air flows through and over the car, then how it moves and how fast it is, and that is where my inspiration came from."
"An Amazing Week" for Andriano
Andriano is a graphic design student with aspirations of working in Formula 1 one day.
The opportunity to design the livery for Red Bull Racing is a huge step in the right direction for her. "Since I started studying my degree in graphic design, I wanted to design something for a car, like a livery, a suit, or a helmet, and even before that, I knew that one day I wanted to work in Formula 1, so getting this opportunity from Oracle Red Bull Racing is something huge," said Andriano.
"This is going to be my first ever race, the car is going to have my design, and I'm going to be in the garage. It's going to be an amazing week."
Red Bull Racing's Strong Start to the Season
Red Bull Racing has had a strong start to the season, with four victories in four races, two of which were achieved by their drivers, Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez.
Verstappen is currently leading the drivers' standings with 93 points, while Perez is six points behind. The team is also dominating the constructors' standings, leading with 180 points ahead of Aston Martin, who has 87. In addition to the new livery, Verstappen has also prepared a new design for his helmet for the Miami race.
