Red Bull Racing has revealed that it will unveil the car to defend its latest championship success in the pit-lane ahead of this month's opening pre-season test.

Less than 24 hours after old rival Ferrari confirmed that its 'launch' would take place in two stages next Friday and Saturday (24-25 January), the four-time champions announced that RB10 would make its first public appearance at Jerez, shortly before the 2014 season gets underway in earnest with the first of three group tests.

The Jerez session will be followed by two more in Bahrain but, unlike Lotus, Red Bull - often one of the last teams to launch - clearly intends to give its new driver pairing of world champion Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber replacement Daniel Ricciardo as much track time as possible before racing gets underway in Australia in mid-March.
