RedBull F1 Car + Infrared Camera + Donuts is a Different Kind of Light Show - It's Beautiful!

The spectrum of visible colors perceived by the human eye represents only a fraction of what’s actually going on outside, but it’s with cameras like these infrared ones used by FLIR that we see part of what else is out there. For instance, an F1 car doing a donut has never looked more spectacular and artsy than this...

Who would have thought that a soapbox derby race could be so intense and so much fun? We missed this episode when it happened last summer at the "Red Bull Soapbox Race London 2013", but nothing escapes the almighty internet…

Red Bull Team Makes Pointless Video of F1 Car vs F/A-18 Jet


Read more

The image-building department behind the Red Bull F1 team really seems to have run out of new ideas. That’s probably why they’ve resorted to setting up a race between their 2011 racer, the V8-powered RB7 that revved close to 19,000 rpm, and an F/A-18 multirole jet.

The 2014 Formula One season kicks off this weekend in Australia, so Infiniti Red Bull Racing thought it's a good moment to explain the significant changes that take place this year in the series.

Winter Sports Are More Fun When You Have 900HP…

Watching the different winter sports disciplines is definitely entertaining, but it’s nowhere near as much as it could be if it also involved 900hp off-road trucks jumping around. Red Bull hosted the Frozen Rush 2014 event recently, and it’s as spectacular as you might have imagined it to be.

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.

Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel was crowned Formula 1 World Champion for the fourth consecutive year on Sunday, after winning the Indian Grand Prix. The German has now the same number of titles as Alain Prost and has only two other great drivers to beat: Juan Manuel Fangio (5 titles) and Michael Schumacher (7 titles). The 26-year-old driver is the youngest double, triple and now quadruple world champion.

Investing in Formula One is like gathering up an exorbitantly large pile of banknotes then pouring lots of acid over it, until all that’s left is useless sizzling gunk. We wonder where all those millions go and what they’re used for, when the popularity of the sport  has been in free-fall for many years and it doesn't look like it's about to change too radically any time soon.

Red Bull Takes Us Through the R&D Process Behind an F1 Car


Read more

You really don’ need us to tell you just how complicated, expensive and time consuming the development process of a Formula One car is. Nothing burns through cash quicker, and if all of it had been redirected towards the development of more advanced means of space travel, instead of motorsport, we’d have already colonized Mars by now…

Red Bull Racing Pit Crew Change Four Tires in Just Over 2 Seconds Breaking World Record


Read more

The time taken to change a set of tires during a racing event has been going down over the years, from a few minutes at the dawn of racing, to less than three seconds in modern times. Recently, the Red Bull Racing F1 pit crew changed the tires on one of their cars, during the Malaysian Grand Prix, in a telemetry-confirmed 2.05 seconds.

Formula 1: Australian Grand Prix Race Report

When the red lights went out on Sunday, March 17, at Australia’s Albert Park circuit they marked the start of the 2013 Formula 1 season. Given that rules were mostly unchanged compared to last year, the status quo in teams’ performance was unlikely to be upset.

It certainly looked that way at first, with triple world champion Sebastian Vettel and his Red Bull leading the race. But it wasn’t a walk in the park for the reigning champ; far from it as strategy played a great role in the outcome of the Australian F1 Grand Prix.

Formula 1: 2013 Season to Open with Australian Grand Prix


Read more

March always marks the beginning of a new Formula 1 season – and this year is no exception, as 11 teams and 22 drivers line up for the inaugural race of the 19-event marathon that starts this weekend at Australia's Albert Park circuit.

Major changes in technical regulations will be implemented in 2014, when turbocharged engines will return to F1 after a quarter of a century, as they were banned at the end of 1988. For now, the biggest differences compared to 2012 are the restrictions in the use of the DRS system during practice and qualifying and the new tire compounds by sole supplier Pirelli.

Super Silly? Chevrolet SS NASCAR Team and Red Bull Racing do The Harlem Shake


Read more

There's no end to The Harlem Shake videos popping up right and left on the internet, and as one would expect, the new viral phenomenon has caught the attention of advertisers and marketing people in the auto industry as well.

Following in the footsteps of so many others, Red Bull Racing Australia and even four-time champion NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon (with the help / push of sponsor Pepsi) and his team who will run the new Chevrolet SS, joined in on the “Harlem Shake” silliness and posted their own videos.

How Red Bull Racing Bought Ford's F1 Failure for $1 and went on to Win 6 Titles

The late legendary NASCAR racer and team owner Dale Earnhardt Sr. had famously said, “Second place is just the first place loser”. Sebastian Vettel, who on November 26 won his third consecutive Formula 1 world championship with Red Bull Racing (RBR), thinks along the same lines: “When you win, everything is crazy. When you lose, you have time for yourself, no one is interested”, he says.

Everyone is certainly interested in Vettel and Red Bull Racing, which also won its third constructors’ title in a row this season. What makes their accomplishments even more astonishing is the fact that the RBR team was formed in 2005 and its first win came in the 2009 Chinese Grand Prix.

Formula 1: Brazilian Grand Prix Race Report

It’s not the first time that the Formula 1 title has gone down to the wire. Far from it, since any fan of the sport can certainly recall some epic finales.

In 2008, for example, when Ferrari’s Felipe Massa crossed the finish line, he had won not only the Brazilian Grand Prix but also the world championship as McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton was in sixth place. The latter, though, passed Timo Glock in the second-to-last corner and moved up to fifth, clinching the title by a single point and leaving Massa second.

Formula 1: U.S. Grand Prix Race Report

It’s true that, despite having half a century of history behind it, Formula 1 has never really caught on with motorsport fans in the United States.

Nevertheless, last week it returned to the Land of the Free after a seven-year hiatus. The last time an F1 GP was staged on American soil it was in Indianapolis; now, it took place at a brand-new track in Austin, Texas.

With the two title contenders, Red Bull Racing’s Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, being close in the drivers’ standings, F1’s return to the States could very well determine the outcome of the championship.
