Red Bull saw progress in Honda, when they partnered with junior team Toro Rosso, and were convinced they would make the gains required to push on and become a title contender once more.

"I am very excited to get started as the off-season has been quite long", Verstappen said earlier.

Red Bull Racing unleashed its RB15 today at Silverstone in the capable hands of Max Verstappen, and while it was but a shakedown run it still left the Dutchman smiling.

"With Honda, we're expecting a lot, we're all very positive but I think it also needs to take a little bit of time, it can not be from race one it will be ideal".

Toro Rosso finished ninth of 10 teams a year ago with the Honda engine but Red Bull has sounded optimistic about the progress made by the Japanese manufacturer. I am optimistic, but also realistic and only time will tell as to how we will get on.

France replied through a Morgan Parra penalty and Damian Penaud try in an error-strewn performance which does not bode well in World Cup year.

Verstappen, who shared the victories with Australian Daniel Ricciardo last season, has a new team-mate for 2019 in Frenchman Pierre Gasly.

"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 unveiled its first Honda-powered Formula One auto on Wednesday with Max Verstappen driving the initial laps at Silverstone. Red Bull won four races in 2018 but believes a works partnership with Honda will boost its chances of challenging Mercedes and Ferrari more consistently, and Verstappen admits working with a new manufacturer is something he is eager to do. We've obviously been able to strike at venues that have suited the characteristics of our auto, winning four races last year - should have been five - and three races the year before.

"Formula 1 is the pinnacle of motorsport".

Red Bull's new auto was unveiled on the same day as defending champions Mercedes, who the team will hope they can wrestle both championships off in the upcoming season. "So I think it will take time, but both Red Bull and Honda have the same targets and I'm sure they will manage to achieve what they want".
