Specsavers joins fans in brutally trolling Red Bull as F1 champions reveal Max Verstappen’s new car for 2023 season

SPECSAVERS joined F1 fans in poking fun at Red Bull after the world champions unveiled their new car.

Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez will take to the track in the new RB19 later this month as Formula One returns for pre-season testing.

Fans were quick to use a meme from the US Office to compare Red Bull’s 2022 and 2023 car designs

But motorsport fans could not help but notice the striking resemblance that the Red Bull’s ‘new’ livery had to last year’s design, despite a huge online build-up by the drinks brand.

Keeping with tradition, the manufacturers did not tweak much on the colour template with dark blue covering most of the car.

Specsavers were among the first to point out the similarities as fans jokingly reflected on Red Bull’s predictable design after their launch today in America.

One said: “For some reason, I dream of a new livery every year, and ever year I’m let down.”


Another said: “Massive credit to the designers, really pushed the boat out this year.”

And a third fan said: “Social media manager uploaded the 2022 car.”

While the reveal may have been underwhelming for some fans, there was some more notable aspects of the announcement.

Red Bull became the first F1 team to launch a car in the US, with American race fans getting a chance to glimpse two-time world champion Verstappen.

The constructors also announced that they will be running a competition for fans to design a special livery for the three US races – Miami, Austin and Las Vegas – on the calendar this year.

Red Bull and Verstappen ran away with the championship last year but fans will be hoping competition will be closer this season.

Ferrari have made changes to their heavily-criticised operation while Mercedes will hope to improve on last year’s imperfect car.
