Red Bull and AlphaTauri show off new look for United States

Red Bull and AlphaTauri will run with tweaked liveries once again this weekend, with both teams running sponsorship for the 'Acura' brand.

Acura is Honda's North American luxury and high-performance brand, and used to appear on the visors of Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna during the halcyon McLaren-Honda days at races in Canada and the United States.

As recently revealed by RacingNews365.com, both of the Red Bull teams will run Acura branding this weekend, the first time the brand will be represented at a Grand Prix since the 2007 Canadian Grand Prix.

Acura branding will feature on the rear wings of the cars, as well as on the driving suits and helmet visors of Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez and AlphaTauri drivers Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda.

"As Honda's high-performance marque in North America it seems only right and proper that Acura should be present at the pinnacle of motorsport, Formula 1 and we are delighted to welcome them back for this year’s United States Grand Prix," said Christian Horner of the reveal.

"I remember Alain Prost winning the US Grand Prix in 1989 with Acura on his visor, so hopefully having the brand with us this weekend at the Circuit of the Americas will bring us the same result."

It's the second consecutive race in which Red Bull and AlphaTauri will run different liveries to their usual, with both teams running liveries in tribute to their departing engine supplier over the Turkish Grand Prix weekend.

"It's very special to have Acura become part of our partnership with Red Bull Racing Honda and Scuderia AlphaTauri Honda for the United States Grand Prix," said Masashi Yamamoto, Honda F1's Managing Director.

"This has been an incredible F1 season so far and we are proud to add the Acura brand to our story for this iconic F1 race in America."
