The Red Bull Racing team has confirmed that its 2010 car launch will be staged in Jerez on Wednesday 10 February. The unveiling of the Renault-powered RB6 by drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber will tie-in with the team's first pre-season test outing of the year.
Once again, Milton Keynes-based Red Bull - championship runners-up to Brawn GP in 2009 - will miss the first pre-season test of the year as Adrian Newey's design team focuses on putting the team's latest contender through its paces in the wind tunnel.
"We wanted to give ourselves as much time as possible to research and develop the car," explained Newey, Technical Director for the English team.
"We felt that, because the car is evolutionary, we hopefully didn't need to be out early to establish the basic concept of the car. We wanted to allow ourselves as much time as possible to research it."
"Due to the limit on tyres available to the teams, there's no point in burning up engine mileage and rubber on an RB5 (2009 car)," added Team Principal Christian Horner. "We'd rather use the tyres for quality testing at the three tests that we have confirmed we'll run at, starting with the first test in Jerez."
