The Red Bull junior team is all set to raise curtain from its much anticipated Honda-powered STR14. The team has announced that it will unveil the car on February 11, Monday. A short YouTube video confirmed that the car will break cover one week before winter testing begins at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain on February 18, meaning that as it stands, they will be the first team to launch their 2019 car.
Till date, six teams have revealed their launch dates, with Renault previously set to be the earliest by unveiling its new car on February 12. Racing Point follows a day later with a new identity reveal in Canada on February 13, while McLaren's MCL34 will be launched on Valentine's Day.
