Before Red Bull unveiled their new (if old) livery for their RB19 for 2023, Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez got a glimpse of a special RB14 design by Mr Doodle to be auctioned for the Wings for Life charity.

But what did the Red Bull drivers make of the unique artistic design?

  1. Max to Sergio: “Seb has really let himself go…”

    1. OK, that’s a winner.

    Some things never change, Checo sees the black and white after Max.

  3. Mr Doodle: “Yeah, I just scribbled all over the car with my eyes closed but it’s still way better than the 2023 livery.”

  4. Checo laughs at the car, but Max is less convinced having realised Mr Doodle is modelling the co-ordinated team kit.

  5. “Due to the cost cap, I could only use 1 marker and it ran out before I could finish this end bit here”

  6. “OK, so now tell your engineers what they need to improve. I marked the needed corrections on the car”.

  7. Thought experiment: what if the livery designer drinks only Red Bull for a whole week and then designs our new livery?

  8. Doodle, where’s my car?

  9. So our concept was to display all Max’s radio messages on the car, though for our younger viewers we had to scribble out all the bad words.

    That last 1.6% on the endplate would have put me over budget.

      Oops, I’ve just seen that I’ve effectively stolen somebody else’s caption! Sorry about that…

  11. “My brief was to make it as confusing as a Ferrari strategy”

  12. Max was delighted that now when shown the black and white flag for driving standards, he could just treat it as a fan’s flag.

  13. Did you… also draw the oil leaking out of our engines..? just look at this bit here how this line fits perfectly with to cockpit!
    You did, didn’t you.”
    But this bit here…

    “and if you squint and then relax your eyes, you’ll see a 3D image of…

  15. “…and the patch on the ground represents the Renault/TAG Heuer engine…”

  16. This is what Adrian Newey sees when air passes over a car.

    Sergio was fluent in Dingbats, so he got the joke immediately

  18. “Keith Haring? Never heard of him.” -the artist, probably.

  19. However the design wasn’t used on the real racecar after the FIA’s new ban on “artistic statements”.

    Max and Sergio’s attempts to ‘draw a line’ under their recent disagreement take an unexpected turn.

  21. I’m not an artistic genius. Actually it was just a doddle.

  22. “Whatever you do, Max, don’t touch this bit.”

  23. “so then I gave my nephew, who is about this tall, a pad and a black crayon…..”

  24. A tin of Mr Doodles patented ‘patterned paint’ was accidently spilled on the floor and could not be cleaned up before the unveiling.

  25. Max Verstappen continues his trend of raising money for charity by touching rear wings

  26. Here comes an unimpressed Max.
    Get away from the edge of the stage.

  27. “Great, huh? I did the same for Mercedes last year. They even based their aerodynamic design on it.”

  28. “My favourite part is the tyres”

    1. 👍🏼

  29. Mr Doodle: “And now if you’ll just put your hands right here, you’ll feel the hot air blow. Precisely what Christian wanted us to do at the launch”.

  30. Seb, welcome back Red Bull, tell us about your role as the team’s new Mr. Doodle

    1. Boy George and I decided to get together….

  31. “I missed it, did he say his name was Mr. Doodle or Mr. Doo-Doo?”
