What time does Red Bull Racing, bringing back the car giant Ford, unveil its F1 car this Friday? The reigning world champion team will unveil its single-seater for the 2023 F1 season this Friday live from New York, USA. The RB19 will have the tough task of outperforming its predecessor, the RB18. The Milton Keynes based Austrian world champions will announce the return of the Ford motor company back to Formula One.
This Friday, the Red Bull team is the second on the grid to unveil its new livery for the 2023 F1 season after Haas earlier this week. The RB19 presentation takes place this year in New York, USA.

Red Bull set to wow the world today at 2pm (GMT)

The return of Ford to F1
The return of Ford to Formula One as engine manufacturer for the Red Bull Racing team from the 2026 season is set to be officially announced in New York today.
Ford has been absent from Formula One since 2004 when the Ford logo was present on the Jordan team’s cars, but remains the third most successful engine manufacturer in F1 history with ten constructors’ championships and thirteen drivers’ championships.
Ford ended their association with Formula One last when they sold the then owned Jaguar team to Red Bull in 2004 and withdrew from the sport. And so a Ford/Red Bull hookup would contain a tinge of irony given the history of the Milton Keynes based squad.

I thought Red Bull were developing their own engine. Has that been stopped now? How does the money spent on that affect their expenditure cap?
