Team aims to build on the success of last year

Red Bull has revealed its new RB6 Formula One car at the latest test in Jerez.

Red Bull finished last season as the strongest team and it is expecting its drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber to again be fighting for the title.

Many of designer Adrian Newey’s design features from last year’s RB5 have been incorporated into rivals’ cars this year and the RB6 design is an evolution of last year’s contender.

The V-nose at the front is more extreme than last year’s design and the car also features high side pods and a shark fin engine cover.

Webber has given the car its first out outing at Jerez this morning and will share the driving with Vettel over the next four days.
