The Milton Keynes-based outfit have confirmed their plans to unveil their latest Renault-powered car in the pitlane at 8.40am local time on the opening morning of winter testing. Mercedes and Caterham have already confirmed plans for similar roll-outs in southern Spain.
Having dominated F1's previous regulation era with Sebastian Vettel since 2010, Red Bull are widely expected to face a renewed challenge from their rivals in the new season owing to the sheer scale of the powertrain revolution the sport is undergoing this year.
For the first time in his six seasons at the team, Vettel is joined in Red Bull's line-up by someone other than Mark Webber, the Australian's young countryman Daniel Ricciardo having been promoted from Toro Rosso.
Two of Red Bull's perennial rivals, McLaren (January 24) and Ferrari (January 25), will launch their respective challengers online before flying out to Jerez.
2014 car launch schedule
January 24: McLaren MP4-29 - Online.
January 25: Ferrari - Online.
January 28: Red Bull RB10, Mercedes W05 and Caterham - Jerez.
February: Lotus - Pre-Bahrain test.
The Sky Sports F1 Online team will be providing live commentary of all three winter tests, starting in Jerez on Tuesday January 28, with live updates from trackside also on Sky Sports News.
