The reigning constructors' champions will unveil the RB10 on January 28 – the morning of the first test – in a move that matches that of Mercedes and Caterham. The car will be launched in the pit lane twenty minutes before the start of running.
Both drivers will be present at the circuit that day, with Sebastian Vettel likely to be the first to drive the new car.
McLaren and Ferrari have both confirmed launch dates prior to the first test, while Williams has also announced it will be present. With Lotus opting to skip the first test and launch in time for the two tests in Bahrain, only Sauber, Force India, Toro Rosso and Marussia are yet to confirm their plans.
