Aston Martin Red Bull Racing unveil the new RB16

Shots of the RB16 and its iconic matt livery were published for the first time. Here is all you need to know:

- Verstappen will drive the new car for the first time at Silverstone later today while the Dutchman and teammate Albon will test the car more thoroughly at the first of the winter testing sessions in Barcelona next week.

- Both drivers, an unchanged partnership from 2019, also unveiled their new-look helmets for the opening race of the season in Australia next month.

- Of his new helmet, Verstappen said: “It’s a bit more fresher look and with the halo this will stand out a bit more.”

- Meanwhile, Albon added: “It’s pretty similar to last year’s helmet with a few tweaks. I’ve got the Thai flag up at the top, have some yellow camo around. It’s quite simple but I like that. With the Red Bull colours, I think it looks really good.”
