During the launch of Red Bull Racing's new championship challenger at the Spanish 'Circuito de Catalunya' this morning, Robert Doornbos was also again presented as the team's test and reserve driver for 2007.

After many months of intensive preparations, Adrian Newey's newly designed RB3 finally broke cover today at the GP circuit near Barcelona. The Renault powered RB3 is expected to let David Coulhard and Mark Webber shine throughout the 2007 Formula One World Championship. Immediately after the presentation, Mark Webber started testwork with the new car.

As already speculated on the internet this week, Red Bull Racing also presented Dutchman Robert Doornbos as their test and reserve driver for 2007 again. Doornbos wil contribute to the team's development programme this season and be ready to replace one of the regular race drivers during GP weekends if necessary.

Robert Doornbos:

"I'm happy and proud to be here. I had an awesome time within the Red Bull family last year and proved my worth in the three races I was given. Next to this I was able to witness the team's boundless ambition and determination to realise their objectives from a close distance. No wonder I wanted to be part of the team's plans again in 2007. If the car proves to be just as quick as it looks like, we can look forward to a great year!"
