The Red Bull RB15 is a Formula One racing car designed and constructed by Red Bull Racing to compete during the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship.[2] The car was being driven by Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly,[3] who joined the team after Daniel Ricciardo moved to Renault. However after the 2019 Hungarian Grand Prix it was announced that Alexander Albon will be replacing Gasly for the remainder for the season.[4] The RB15 is the first car built by Red Bull Racing with a Honda engine,[5] and made its competitive début at the 2019 Australian Grand Prix. Max Verstappen's win at the 2019 Austrian Grand Prix made the RB15 the first Honda-powered car to achieve victory since Jenson Button won for Honda at the 2006 Hungarian Grand Prix in the Honda RA106.
