    Red Bull Racing have finally revealed the actual race livery for their 2015 challenger the RB11, retaining their typical colours after testing in an interim black-and-white scheme with drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat.


    The reasoning behind what was quickly dubbed the “zebra” livery was pragmatic, its intricacy meant to disguise the new car’s technical innovations from rival teams. But from the moment it left the garage it had become an instant favourite with many fans, something truly different in a world where established brand recognition is everything. So is it a shame that the team has reverted to its more “traditional” livery? Maybe, but Red Bull’s other sponsors barely stood out on the test scheme, and besides the car hardly looks bad now.

    But what do you think? Do you prefer Red Bull’s race livery or would you have kept the “zebra” one from testing? Vote in our poll and comment below!

    I like it more than last year, but please get rid of the purple RB.

    The Camo-Bull was not nice to me, only special, and different to anything else. That's why I prefer the race livery, although that's not perfect.

    It's probably for branding reasons, but i dislike this livery so much. Looks identical to the same boring liveries of the most recent years.

    If they had another sponsor, it could be so much better. And they would probably need silver to make it better.

    The grey background of the Red Bull cans would be nice as a second primary color.

    would be nice if only they retain the camo with mix of RB's main color like the pic below.

    Heck, that camouflaging livery had no one fooled. It was way more complex and detailed than this new livery...maybe it made their car appear a little out of place, but it was so unique, just set them apart, a shame to loose it for the typical RedBull fare.

    When you have so many photographers getting close to the car, there is no reason for camo. I believe it was mainly for PR reasons.
