Red Bull has revealed a striking new look for the 2015 F1 season with its RB11, complete with 'camo' testing livery.

The last team to pull the wraps off its 2015 F1 entry, the RB11 didn't make its public debut until Daniel Ricciardo emerged on track for a systems check before pulling in.

Somewhat unexpectedly, Red Bull has deviated quite dramatically from its familiar livery in favour of a busy new black and white design, though this is expected to be used just for testing

Despite the late debut, team principal Christian Horner is confident the RB11 has what it takes to return Red Bull to the forefront of the sport.

"Our target is simple: to close down the gap to Mercedes yet further," says Horner. "We were the only team other than Mercedes to win a grand prix in 2014 and we won three with Daniel Ricciardo. Our target is to close the gap down and put Mercedes under as much pressure as we possibly can.

"We know what we're aiming at, we know what we need to achieve and I believe that with the RB11, with the drivers we have and with the new structures put in place we should be able to do that."

Referencing the tight turnaround, Horner insists it is normal for his team to be pushing the limit.

"We've been pushing to the limit as usual. We had a very tight timescale for the car to be prepared in time for the first test, but that's normal in this team. If you're not on the limit you're not trying hard enough."
