Red Bull’s New Livery Isn’t Great, But Is Better Than The Helmet Change Ban

So, apologies for being a bit late to catch up to this - but hey, they were a bit weirdly late to launch it. Red Bull have made a few tweaks to their livery as they prepare to start the Post-Vettel era, although perhaps not as many tweaks as we might have anticipated or hoped for.
