Red Bull Racing has put on a show for the weekend in Turkey. The RB16B is completely dressed in white in honour of Honda. The reactions are very positive about the special livery and also Max Verstappen thinks it is 'simply lovely'.

Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez will have to get used to their new car this weekend. There is no update, but the car is dressed in a completely different colour this weekend. The normally dark blue livery is now completely white.

Praise for the white RB16B

Red Bull Racing designed this livery as a tribute to Honda. The Japanese will leave Formula 1 at the end of this year and could have said goodbye to the Japanese public this weekend with their home Grand Prix. However, the Japanese GP was cancelled and so Red Bull came up with something else.

Online people are lyrical about the new livery. Verstappen uses the term 'simply lovely' to express his appreciation for it. Olav Mol also thinks the new livery 'worked out well' and Luke Smith states that Red Bull rarely misses the mark when it comes to a one-off livery. See all reactions here.
