Red Bull Racing History


Technical officer Adrian Newey and Red Bull Racing team owner Dietrich Mateschitz

Technical officer Adrian Newey and Red Bull Racing team owner Dietrich Mateschitz

Four consecutive world championships and some hefty financial backing have made Red Bull Racing a powerful addition to the formula one grid since its induction in 2005. The controversial move from energy drinks manufacturers Red Bull to purchase a racing team may not have won them many hearts but in the subsequent years, they have earned everyone's respect and nowadays, fear.

After purchasing the Jaguar team in September 2004 the team drew up plans to rapidly rise to the front of the grid, although this was unlikely as Ferrari dominated the sport and had just won five straight world titles. However, the experienced David Coulthard and protégée Christian Klein guided the team to an impressive sixth-place finish in the constructor's standings in their first season. Coulthard, a multiple race winner at McLaren, then claimed the team's first podium finish at Monaco a year later. After proclaiming beforehand that he would jump into the swimming pool naked had one of his cars claimed a podium, team boss Christian Horner kept to his word.

In 2007 the team signed experienced Australian Mark Webber to drive alongside Coulthard, with the aim that he would partner Coulthard's eventual replacement who would be selected from Red Bull's junior team, Toro Rosso. Toro Rosso served as a driving apprenticeship for young drivers who, if good enough, will progress to Red Bull. The team showed slow progression by coming 5th in the championship that season, and in Mark Webber, they had found a perfect second driver who competed hard with Coulthard.

In 2008 the team suffered the embarrassment of their sister team Toro Rosso claiming a race win before they did, as the hot young prospect Sebastian Vettel romped home to win at Monza. Coulthard and Webber improved in terms of points in 2008, but not in position and dropped back to a disappointing 7th.

As DC retired, the young Vettel joined Webber on the main team and took the team's first-ever race victory in the season's third race, China. With the poor cars produced by major teams Ferrari and McLaren, Red Bull found themselves with one of the fastest cars on the grid. Consistent podiums for Vettel followed in 2009 and although the car wasn't on pace terms with the Brawn, he managed to win the British Grand Prix later that season. This triggered a superb run to the end of the season as Vettel racked up further victories in Japan and Abu Dhabi, while Mark Webber won the first races of his career in Germany and Brazil. Red Bull came second in the championship and the following season they produced an even finer car, the shift of power in the sport was swinging Red Bull's way.

After a dramatic topsy-turvy season, Vettel won his maiden world championship, claiming five wins along the way. In a tight contest, he narrowly beat his teammate Webber, who finished third place with four wins. Vettel destroyed the field the next season to defend his championship by over 100 points in the totally dominant RB7 car. The RB8 in 2012 was less dominant and the duo struggled in the early rounds of the season. However, Newey's design brilliance and Red Bull's development speed soon provided Vettel with the platform to hunt down Fernando Alonso's Ferrari and successfully defend the title again. 2013 saw a fourth straight title for team and driver.

With Webber now retired and the turbo-hybrid era's arrival, there was a changing of the tide in Formula 1, with Mercedes dominating. Daniel Ricciardo still won three races in 2014 after replacing his fellow Australian, while Sebastian Vettel left for Ferrari in 2015.

The 2015 and 2016 F1 seasons were a bit disappointing for the Milton Keynes-based race team. Mercedes had the best of them. The chassis that came from Newey was brilliant and arguably generated the most downforce and mechanical grip of all cars, but the Renault engine wasn't powerful enough against Mercedes and even Ferrari. They did beat Ferrari but only because of the chassis that was better than Ferrari could build.

In the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix, Max Verstappen was promoted to Red Bull from Toro Rosso in place of Daniil Kvyat, and the Dutchman won the race after the two Mercedes crashed in the first lap and a good strategy from the team.

Ricciardo won the 2016 Malaysian Grand Prix and the team hoped to start a new aerodynamic era in 2017 strongly.

Race-winners in 2017 and 2018, but not enough

However, the team had the third-fastest car in most tracks during the 2017 and 2018 seasons. Even though they were often behind Ferrari and Mercedes in those two years, Verstappen and Ricciardo still managed to win seven races (four for Verstappen and three for the Australian) and be consistent podium-finishers.

Verstappen becomes Red Bull's main character

The 2019 season saw Red Bull being quite close with Ferrari in a fight for second place in the World Constructors' championship, but Ricciardo had left the team for Renault. Pierre Gasly replaced the Australian, but he could not adapt to the now Verstappen-oriented car, and Alex Albon replaced him for the second half of the season, having similar results.

Verstappen finished third in the World Drivers' Championship in 2019, with three wins, but the team was third in the WCC behind Mercedes and Ferrari.

The 2020 Formula 1 season saw Ferrari out of the battle for wins and Red Bull became the second-best team behind Mercedes, with Verstappen again finishing third in the championship after taking a couple of wins and 11 podiums, while Alex Albon had two podiums in his last year with the team.

Sergio Pérez's arrival and Red Bull's return to WDC glory

Sergio Pérez became Verstappen's teammate for the 2021 season, and Red Bull showed it had the best car on the grid during pre-season testing. Verstappen made good use of it and won the 2021 World Drivers' Championship in the final race after a year-long battle with Mercedes' seven-time champion Lewis Hamilton.

Verstappen took 10 wins in 2021 and a single-season record 18 podiums. While Pérez won the 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix and finished on the podium five times.

Dominant in 2022, again with the best car on the grid

In the first half of the 2022 Formula 1 season, Red Bull took nine wins in 13 races, with Max Verstappen (eight) and Sergio Pérez (one at Monaco).

In the early stages, Ferrari looked to compete with Red Bull, winning two of the first three races. From then on, Red Bull dominated and took advantage of Ferrari's strategic mistakes and unreliability.

In the 2022 Belgian Grand Prix, Verstappen won easily from 14th place on the grid and his teammate Sergio Pérez finished second. It was Red Bull's 85th win in Formula 1.

Red Bull F1 penalty talks paused after Mateschitz death

AUSTIN, TEXAS - OCTOBER 23: Race winner Max Verstappen of the Netherlands and Oracle Red Bull Racing celebrates winning the F1 World Constructors Championship with his team after the F1 Grand Prix of USA at Circuit of The Americas.

From the 2022 French Grand Prix, the team started a streak of six Grand Prix victories, with five for Verstappen and one for Pérez in another street race with rain, at Singapore. That was the second streak of at least six consecutive wins for Red Bull in 2022, and the win at Singapore was the 88th in team history.

Verstappen won the following race at Japan with his teammate Sergio Pérez finishing second. The result secured the 2022 WDC for Verstappen and was the 22nd 1-2 for Red Bull, as well as the 89th victory for the squad.

Red Bull achieved the fifth World Constructors' Championship at the 2022 United States Grand Prix, which was won by Max Verstappen. It was the team's first WCC since 2013, and it keeps Red Bull in fifth place in the all-time list of WCC winners.

Verstappen's win at Austin was the 90th for Red Bull in 344 starts. The team is also fifth in the list of most wins for a constructor.

The team is also fifth in terms of WDCs with six, tied with Lotus and one away from Williams' fourth place.
