Ladies and gentlemen, here's the car that will win the 2014 Formula One World Championship... probably. Maybe. The success of Red Bull Racing over the past several years means that the debut of its 2014 challenger is one of the more note-worthy events of the preseason, showing off the latest piece of aerodynamic mastery from Adrian Newey.

Like the Ferrari F14 T, the Red Bull RB10 features a more conventional nose, which still plunges rather dramatically ahead of the front wheels. We're seeing a very interesting split early in the season between the top teams like Red Bull and Ferrari, who are opting for a more traditional design, and the mid-pack challengers, which are being more aggressive with their aerodynamics. Seeing how this plays out during the season will be very interesting. As for RBR's design, it's attractive, but wasn't easy to pen, according to Newey, who found the turbocharged V6s a difficult piece in the new F1 puzzle.

"Whereas the V8s were a very well-known package, with these power units, the engine itself is easy enough to install, but then of course you've got the turbocharger, the intercoolers, and the electrical side in terms of the motor generator units and much bigger batteries," Newey told the official Formula One website.

Speaking of that engine, don't let the Infiniti logos on the side pods fool you - this is a Renault-built engine. RBR boss Christian Horner sees the new powertrain being the linchpin to the team's chances in 2014. "In terms of the key elements this year, obviously the engine is going to be a crucial factor - reliability of the power units is going to be critical," Horner said. "Obviously whoever has the most powerful, reliable power unit is going to come out on top."

We have a small gallery of images from the car's debut in Jerez at the top of the page. How does Red Bull's entry stack up relative to the other cars that have debuted so far? Let us know what you think in Comments.

      I'd say the Red Bull looks the best so far.

      Well, at least it doesn't look like it has a dong attached to the front.

      It's better than Caterham's interpretation of the new F1 regs... http://www.magnetimarelli.com/sites/default/files/news_motorsport/1390919016.jpg

        If you have Vettel to drive it. Newey designed cars before RB and not every driver managed to turn it to gold...

          FW16 almost got the title though. Also, FW16 is driven primarily by not so stellar driver versus soon to be legendary driver.

      "don't let the Infiniti logos on the side pods fool you - this is a Renault-built engine" Actually they are built by Mecachrome. All Renault F1 engines have always been designed and built by Meacachrome. Renault-Nissan is the parent company of Infiniti.

      So it CAN be done without fingers and penises sticking out of the car's nose...

        The Ferrari and Mercedes are the only two teams without some protruding nose. This one is just cleverly painted.

          It's shaped like a curvaceous wedge, actually.

      Mercedes takes the cake in the design department. Oh and dont forget Red Bull failed to even register a flying lap earlier today in testing.

      Take a closer look everyone. It still features the ridiculous looking dong on the front end. They just opted to paint it black and cleverly design the the yellow outline to make it appear as if there is no phallic appendage on the front.
