Visa Cash App RB teased the new livery of their new 2024 challenger on Instagram just less than a day ahead of the official launch.
VCARB will be the fifth team in the grid to unveil their car officially. Previously, we have already seen Haas
/Stake, and Alpine
Three of the four above-mentioned teams revealed designs that implemented what they called "aggressive changes." RB and Sauber were two of the most anticipated launches because of brand-new liveries.
Sauber didn't disappoint with their new livery on the C44
, which is a mix of black and bright green (the color of one of their sponsors, Kick). It is quite unlike anything we have seen previously.
fans are now turning their eyes to RB's launch event that is supposed to take place on Friday at 10:30 pm PST
. The team already started teasing their new livery on their Instagram - see the video and photos below:
Do these photos remind you of something? The silver bull with the dark blue color on the side of the engine air intake reminds many fans of Toro Rosso's livery from 2018.
How strong will RB be in 2024?
Though many people discount the team in conversations about the potential top five, the Italy-based team might have a shot.
The team started the last season as one of the worst on the grid but made significant progress towards the end of the season, which sent a clear message to their rivals.
It might have gone unnoticed by fans because the team only improved significantly during the last five or six races and didn't have time to collect as many points, but AlphaTauri (RB's previous name) could match the speed of the sixth-fastest team on the grid in the end.
Considering how the team's CEO, Peter Bayer, suggested the team will take more advantage of its collaboration with Red Bull
, we definitely shouldn't write RB off as one of the midfield teams.
