Red Bull are due to take to Silverstone later today to film a shakedown of their new auto. Red Bull have confirmed that the "special edition livery" marks a new era where Red Bull and Honda have started to work together.

"I was really excited to jump in the auto and as soon as we got going it felt pretty normal", he said. They will use Honda power units for the first time, and the auto carries Honda branding on its nose and engine cover.

As has become tradition for the Austrian team, the RB15 made its first appearance clad in a stunning one-off launch livery, a stealthy-looking dark blue colour scheme lit with glowing red chevrons. "We're all very positive, but it also needs to take a bit of time".

"I want to get the best out of myself, but you have to see what the auto and engine are going to do".

Red Bull, meanwhile, enters 2019 with a tweaked driver line-up, having drafted in long-term junior and 2018 Toro Rosso racer Pierre Gasly in place of Renault-bound Daniel Ricciardo.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey New Game+ promised this month
Considering AC3 originally released on Wii U, bringing this new, remastered version just seemed somewhat logical to begin with. This being said, Assassin's Creed III Remastered coming to Switch shouldn't be all that surprising in the first place.

NASA to make final attempt to contact Mars Opportunity Rover
NASA made its last planned attempts to communicate with Opportunity late on Tuesday, but did not receive any response back. In November 2018 NASA announced that it has selected the location where its Mars 2020 rover will land on the Red Planet.

"Of course today is all about filming, but it's also a really valuable opportunity to check that all the systems work and that the auto is fundamentally in good shape before we head to Barcelona next week where hopefully it will be a bit warmer!" said team boss Christian Horner.

"I want to get the best out of myself, but you have to see what the auto and engine are going to do. In Formula One, it is so related to the package so at this stage I am quite easy going".

Over the course of six runs at the Northamptonshire circuit, the new charger performed faultlessly, with Max Verstappen completing 39 laps as the team performed a battery of systems checks ahead of next week's first test in Barcelona.

Technical director James Allison said the team had worked hard on the suspension and aerodynamics to deliver a auto that would be kinder to its tyres than a year ago and remain competitive at every track on the calendar.
