Red Bull reveal Las Vegas GP livery in dramatic fashion

Red Bull are favourites to win the 2023 Las Vegas GP

-

Red Bull have introduced a dramatically different livery they will use for the 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix weekend, with nods to cars of the past and unveiled in an unlikely setting.

Formula 1’s first visit to Las Vegas in 41 years has seen several teams change their current liveries in preparation for one of the sport’s most highly anticipated Grand Prix.

One of those was Red Bull, whose ‘Make Your Mark’ competition tasked the teams’ fans to design their livery for Las Vegas and the Miami and United States GPs.

After 24,000 fans voted for their favourite livery, Lindsey Palmer from Essex in the United Kingdom was declared the winner with her design, which encompassed purple as a base colour and playing card stickers on the sidepod.

The winning design was unveiled spectacularly as a show car painted in the livery was lowered from the roof of the Omnia nightclub in Las Vegas.

“It is brilliant to be rounding off our third and final Make Your Mark competition this season here in Nevada for the inaugural Las Vegas GP,” Christian Horner told the press.

“It was quite the task picking a winner. Congratulations to Lindsay, who really put Vegas’ iconic stamp on the design, capturing the energy and excitement of both the city and the team.

“Very much looking forward to seeing it racing around the streets of Las Vegas.”

A new look for the majority of the grid

Red Bull was one of seven teams who decided to bring a special livery to commemorate F1’s return to ‘Sin City’.

McLaren brought a Jack Daniels-themed design for the weekend’s festivities, whilst Williams incorporated the city’s famous neon lights onto the engine cover.

Alpine have collaborated with fashion brands Palace and Kappa to create a new livery incorporating the Nevada desert and a new fashion range using the team’s colours.

Ferrari is also bringing a new range of merchandise and a special livery to Las Vegas, which sees the team add white to its traditional red paint scheme.

AlphaTauri will race in black and white colours for the final two races of 2023 to commemorate the launch of the AlphaTauri x Brendan Monroe Las Vegas Capsule fashion Collection.

Alfa Romeo’s final US GP sees the team embrace the city’s casino theme by producing a black-based livery with dashes of gold and a playing card pattern on the front wing and engine cover.
