Watch Red Bull’s F1 Car Do Some Donuts on Top of the Burj Al Arab Hotel

| |

You’re probably aware by now that the FIA doesn’t want championship-winning drivers to show their emotion and thrill spectators. Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel found that out last weekend, when they were slapped with an absurd fine.

Red Bull’s marketing machine didn’t let than event slip unnoticed and decided to show its disapproval by staging a memorable event.

The energy-drink giant took one of its Formula 1 cars and driver David Coulthard to Dubai in order to celebrate winning the 2013 Formula One Drivers’ and Constructors’ championships.

The car was lifted on Burj Al Arab’s helipad, located on the top of the seven star hotel at 210 meters (689 ft) above the sea. David Coulthard’s job was a typical Red Bull adventure: to do some donuts with the 750hp F1 car on the 24-meter wide helipad. You can check out the amazing footage after the break.
