Red Bull to launch at Jerez, Pirelli staying until 2016

World champion team Red Bull will unveil its title-defending RB10 car on the first morning of the opening test at Jerez.

There had been some uncertainty designer Adrian Newey, who runs famously close to deadlines, would be ready for the start of the winter period late this month.

It was also announced late on Thursday that F1's controversial tyre supplier since 2011, Pirelli, has definitively secured a new three-year tenure through 2016.

"Pirelli will continue to determine the specification of the tyres and to manage all aspects of their development, in close consultation with the FIA and the teams," the Italian company said in a statement.
