Christian Horner has hinted the final look of the Red Bull RB11 may deviate from the team's recognisable livery following the decision to run 'camouflage' in Jerez.

Red Bull caused a stir by eschewing the usual pre-test launch in favour of unveiling the car as it exited the pit-lane, in turn surprising onlookers with its black and white 'camo' livery.

Inspired by a helmet design used by Sebastian Vettel on his helmet at Monza last year, Horner freely admits it has been used to distort certain details on the RB11 when viewed in photographs.

"The camouflage livery came out of a helmet Sebastian ran last year that was quite fun. We thought it would be interesting to extend that concept to the rest of the car.

"Dietrich liked it when he saw it, and it epitomises Red Bull really that we like to do things a bit differently. To see a Red Bull in a different livery is quite striking and it also makes it quite difficult to get detailed photographs of the car at a time of year when we're all trying to be as secretive as we possibly can."

Though Horner maintains the livery is for testing only, he hints that there could be changes in store for the design.

"[Fans] won't be disappointed because the livery will be even stronger. You'll have to wait and see - that's why it's in camouflage. It's great to do something different, it's been extremely well received."
