Red Bull has confirmed that its 2011 car, the RB7, will be revealed on February 1.

The low-key unveiling will take place on the morning of the first day of pre-season group testing at Valencia's Ricardo Tormo circuit in Spain.

"Please note February 1 will be a normal test day," the championship winning team announced in an advisory to the press.

The RB7 will be among seven other 2011-specification cars to be running for the first time on February 1, including the new Ferrari, Mercedes, Sauber, Renault, Toro Rosso, Williams and Lotus.

McLaren, Force India, Virgin and HRT will be testing at Valencia with their 2010 cars.
