Richard, yes the V6 maximum RPM is 15k but as I said they will most probably use a redline of 12k. Some time ago there were rumours that RBR were using a start only KERS. Reports are RBR has been packaging their KERS batteries beside and inside the gearbox so as to use a shorter fuel tank, this brings the engine forward and so allowing the use of a longer and slimmer gearbox which is beneficial to aero.
