Red Bull Racing took its third drivers’ and constructors’ championship last season, with Sebastian Vettel becoming the sport’s youngest ever triple champion after a close contest with Ferrari rival Fernando Alonso.
The RB9 will be powered by the Renault engine and it will be fascinating to see if the new car still has the edge over its rivals despite the restrictions in the sport’s regulations as technical director Adrian Newey acknowledges.
“It is increasingly difficult because there are no real regulations changes compared to this year and it will be the fifth season since the 2009 rule changes,” Newey said.
“The field is converging and you can see how competitive it is in the fact that we had eight different winners this year.”
The RB9 has a slightly revised colour scheme incorporating purple, to reflect the team’s title branding from Infiniti.
