Verstappen praises Red Bull livery: Why would we change it?

Red Bull have elected to keep the same livery design for the RB19 as they had in the years prior, which has disappointed some fans expecting a change-up. However, Max Verstappen does not think that any change is necessary.

Prior to the New York launch for the Red Bull RB19, the team teased that they could be going for a slightly different look in 2023 for their livery.

The base blue with the red and yellow bull engine cover has become an iconic paint scheme over the last couple of years, but the team generated intrigue when they ran a special livery to celebrate their partnership with Honda at the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix.

Would they replicate this one-off for the latest season? Instead the team elected to stick to their main livery for the time being, but Max Verstappen wonders why the squad would change it in the first place.

Verstappen: We've had a lot of success in these colours

When asked about his thoughts on the new car livery when it was unveiled at the New York event, Verstappen questioned why they would need to change the paint scheme after having so much success in it so far.

"Our livery has been pretty similar for a couple of years now. But I actually always find that a cool-looking car," he said.

"It really shows you the Red Bull colours all over the place and we have had a lot of success like that, so why do we need to change it up a lot?

"Of course, we have a few more partners on the car, and a few new partners as well. And that's what it's all about."
