Don't be surprised if in February Red Bull pulls the sheet off a car that resembles the 2023 car in many ways, both in shape and with the livery. After all, why change what works well and is instantly recognisable?
Red Bull's livery, aside from the odd tweak here and there or for special one-off designs has remained the same since its debut at the 2005 Australian Grand Prix.
Ford is joining for 2026 as technical engine partner - but what if the Blue Oval and the Red Bull opted to freshen things up a bit?
Some motorsport livery designers have been busy, with a mix below of some of the best, both that have been designed in the normal way or via the customisation options in racing games.
The designers in the album below clearly have that hope and are already fantasizing about what a collaboration between Red Bull and Ford could look like on the track.
View the spectacular designs below.
