New Red Bull to 'look different'

New Red Bull to 'look different'
Team confident progress will be made with the RB5

Hoping to turn-around the disappointing 2008 season
Expectations about the appearance of Red Bull's 2009 car are rising, as the team prepares to launch the RB5 next Monday.

Despite the questionable aesthetics of this year's bodywork regulations, Australian driver Mark Webber recently said the Milton Keynes-based squad is to buck the trend by revealing a 'beautiful' car.

"(The RB5 is) perhaps the most beautiful of the 2009 class, which under the new regulations was pretty difficult," he said.

Helmut Marko, the motor racing advisor to Red Bull chief Dietrich Mateschitz, confirmed Webber's claim about the shape of the Adrian Newey-penned single seater.

He is quoted as saying by the Austrian news agency APA: "Our car will look different to the majority of the others that have been presented so far."

Ahead of the last major technical changes in 1998, Newey designed the championship-winning McLaren.

Marko admits that fundamental rule changes can be an opportunity for unusual shifts of performance in F1. "We are relatively confident," he added.
