Red Bull took the opportunity to unveil its 2018 racing colour scheme, while Force India and Toro Rosso presented new cars, as testing ahead of the Formula One season got under way in Barcelona on Monday.

Fans of Red Bull had already been offered a glimpse of the RB14 last week, but the vehicle was disguised under a one-off camouflage livery.

Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen will be aiming to improve on finishes of fifth and sixth respectively in 2017’s drivers' standings, Red Bull having finished third in the constructors' championship behind runners-up Ferrari and champions Mercedes.

Force India duo Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon will be easy to spot during the coming campaign in the new VJM11, with the team again sporting the pink design that debuted in 2017.

And Red Bull's sister team Toro Rosso, set to be powered by Honda engines in 2018, retained a minor variation on a blue and red colour scheme for the new STR13.
