Red Bull Racing have unveiled their challenger for the 2017 F1 World Championship on the eve of pre-season testing. The dramatic reveal clip of the RB13 above heavily features the theme of luck, and, as the team have put it, this season will most definitely be unlucky for some.

The regulation changes for the 2017 season are a massive overhaul of those from previous years, making the 2017 models as close to a brand new car as F1 fans have seen in a number years. These changes have had a dramatic effect on not only how the car looks, but also how it handles on track. 

The car is going to feel a lot different. Both front and rear tyres are significantly wider. It will increase the speed of the cars. First impression of the RB13 was it looks quite beautiful. Looks sleek.

Daniel Ricciardo

It's not just the car that's had a makeover. Last week, Red Bull Racing's team drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen proudly unveiled their new helmet designs and debuted their race kit for the 2017 season. 

With a fierce looking Dutch lion on the top of Verstappen's lid, and an aggressive honey badger on the back of Ricciardo's, it certainly looks like they're ready to race.
