In a departure from the tradition of recent years, Red Bull have actually released their new F1 auto well in advance of winter testing, and said that they did not to need to launch "aggressively late" this year.
With teams normally tight on spare parts at this time of year, such an incident could have compromised preparations for the first official pre-season test at Barcelona next week if replacements could not be readied in time.
The team said launching "aggressively late" allowed more time to develop the auto, but that they did not need to launch late this year.
Watch the Red Bull RB14 in action. Even the vents cut into the floor either side of the gearbox look deeper than last year's offering, raising the prospect of Red Bull's aerodynamics setup once again being the class of the field as they refine their already strong package.
The limited edition black and blue body paint will be replaced before the season commences
This is also the case with the rear wing, where the angle at which the endplates cut in towards the centre of the auto is again more extreme than it was previously.
The vehicle was launched with a temporary paint scheme, described by the team as "a special edition livery". The British vehicle maker is the new title sponsor for the Red Bull team in 2018, increasing its level of involvement in the sport. Danny Ric is the man putting the Renault-engined chassis through its paces.
And if that happens, Red Bull is likely to make the switch from Renault to Honda for 2019.
The Milton Keynes-based squad retains an unchanged driver line-up of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen for the upcoming season as it aims to produce a sustained F1 world title charge having claimed a total of three race wins and 13 podiums last season on its way to third place in the world constructors' championship.
But their hopes for success will depend on whether engine partner Renault has managed to fulfil its objectives of closing the performance gap on standard-setting Mercedes and their close rivals Ferrari, as well as solving the reliability problems that plagued them a year ago.
