Red Bull 2009

Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber pulled the wraps off of Red Bull Racing’s new car, the RB5, this morning at the Jerez circuit in Spain, and they’ve also released an awesome video to show what’s changed from last year’s cars to this. It’s definitely worth a watch:

It’s another car designed by Adrian Newey, and has his trademark pointy nose. Which looks pretty fragile to me, but then I’m not a world renowned designer so we can only assume he knows what he’s doing!

And apparently, they are being very careful to make sure no one takes photos of their new diffuser…

The car looks quite different to many of the other cars that we’ve already seen launched this year, and the RB5 has an intriguing bargeboard set-up around the front of the sidepods.

Overall though I think this is visually very impressive indeed. I’m sure Vettel is very much looking forward to unleashing this in anger when the test begins proper tomorrow.

Will this be the car that gets Red Bull further towards the front of the grid?
