Red Bull launch 2018 auto, including halo protection device

Red Bull release pics of 2018 F1 car... and it's a HUGE change for Verstappen & Ricciardo

While he was tinkering with various other projects this time last season, I'm pretty sure technical chief Adrian Newey will have been fully focused on Red Bull's 2018 vehicle right from the get-go.

Following the Mercedes versus Ferrari duel for last year's title, Red Bull tweaked their procedures so that they have a potentially winning vehicle from the first race for 2018.

The French marque's deficits to pacesetters Mercedes in performance and reliability has been one of the central themes of the hybrid era and led to an acrimonious dispute between Renault and Red Bull in 2015.

Zimbabwe opposition prepares for election
The MDC once posed a formidable challenge to ZANU-PF, even winning the first round of a presidential election in 2008 vote. Tsvangirai had been the MDC-T's only leader since its formation in 1999.

Dubbed as the "Disruption" livery in-house, the digi-camo scheme appears to be a special edition design for this year only. As a break from the signature of the energy drink brand, the Toro Rosso on the cowl isn't, well, "Rosso" this time around - the bull also comes in bold white right on the cowl.

Australian Daniel Ricciardo crashed Red Bull's new Formula One auto on its track debut, it emerged yesterday, but the team said the damage was minor and there would be no consequences for testing in Spain next week.

"In these conditions we've got filming tyres on it, it's cold, it's wet, it's not very representative but the good thing is, in pretty poor conditions, it felt OK". "Those are encouraging early signs". Installing the halo has been a challenge, mostly in building a chassis strong enough to accommodate it and pass a brutal homologation test. However some new bodywork rules means the vehicle goes without the shark fin of the last couple of seasons.

This represents a fourfold increase from the 2016 figure, which reached an annual record low of only 5,273 cases. When unvaccinated children contract measles it spreads to babies that aren't old enough to get their vaccines.

Driver opinion on the new halo has been split, but it appears Ricciardo doesn't seem to be fazed by the new configuration.

"I've got goals that I want to achieve but I don't necessarily say, 'By race three, I want to be on the podium already twice and have pole position, '" Ricciardo said.

"It's cold, it's pretty miserable today at Silverstone but it's nice to be out there".
