Embracing their fanbase’s creativity, Red Bull will embrace designs for the liveries of the three US-based Grand Prix in 2023 as part of their Make Your Mark initiative.

After showcasing pink and teal details on their Miami-tuned RB19, Max Verstappen and Sergio Pérez are set to race around Austin’s Circuit of the Americas with a design inspired by the Texan lone star flag.

Argentinian graphic designer 39-year-old Franco Cavallone, was the brain behind this livery. He stood out among 2000 entries, securing the fan vote. Interestingly, a fellow Argentine designer had also won the Miami livery contest.

Recalling his elation, Cavallone remarked:

The moment I was told I’d won it was a rollercoaster of emotions, I was so happy,” Cavalone said, before being jetted out to the US Grand Prix as a Red Bull guest.

I remember when I first found out about Make Your Mark, I was watching the second practice session at the Miami GP – it was the first time I’d been to a race – and I found out the Oracle Red Bull Racing livery was designed by a fan from Argentina, like me.

When I got back to my hotel, I researched the competition and signed up to The Paddock and started designing my livery for Austin there and then. I thought about Austin and the Circuit of the Americas and took inspiration from the stripes and stars, and sweeping red, white, and blue lines around the corners of the track.

It’s like a dream that this is happening to me, seeing my design on the car will be the best day ever, I can’t wait to see it on track.

Christian Horner, the Red Bull Team Principal, shared his enthusiasm:

It’s really exciting to see this unique, fan led competition come to life and coincide with the growth of Formula 1 and our supporters in the US, and to invite our global fanbase into the team and our garage to make their mark and design the very livery we race with.

I think Franco has done an excellent job and the car looks incredible showcasing the Texan colours and culture. It’s not every day we release a one-off livery, so it’s even more special that it’s designed by our fans.

Our hunger for winning continues for the remainder of the season, so hopefully this livery will be as winning as Martina’s in Miami, which saw Max and Checo finish on the top two steps of the podium.
