Daniel Ricciardo was doing so well at the Monaco Grand Prix. He claimed Red Bull’s first pole position since 2013, and his first at Monaco. He managed to keep his lead for much of the Monaco Grand Prix itself, where the narrow street circuit makes passes extremely hard. Then he got hosed by his own pit crew.
The wetter the better at Monaco, where the unusually tight circuit usually leads to a limited number of moves when dry. Lewis Hamilton had the experience to know that the track can’t stay wet forever and had his rubber ready. The younger Australian, Daniel Ricciardo, wasn’t quite so lucky.
With their second insane stunt video on these crazy dirt bike/snowmobile hybrids, Red Bull has officially created the job title “professional snow biker.” And here I was thinking I had a cool job.
At 18 years and 227 days old, Red Bull driver Max Verstappen dethroned Sebastian Vettel as Formula One’s youngest-ever grand prix winner. This was Verstappen’s first race with Red Bull after having been promoted from Red Bull’s junior team, Scuderia Toro Rosso.
Red Bull Racing will replace Daniil Kvyat with Max Verstappen from Torro Rosso as Daniel Ricciardo’s teammate starting with the Spanish Grand Prix next weekend, the team announced today.
What Red Bull Racing has been toying around since March is finally here in the flesh, with Daniel Ricciardo testing the new windshield safety device this Friday at the Russian Grand Prix.
Ferrari Formula One driver Sebastian Vettel’s version of a post-race spat is somehow incredibly tame and hilariously immature all at the same wonderful time. After complaining about a first-lap incident all throughout the Chinese Grand Prix, both he and the target of his rage end up on the podium.
Perhaps Formula One should have yellow-flagged the race immediately after that huge melee at the start of the race. Red Bull Racing driver Daniel Ricciardo was leading—something that hasn’t happened in a very long time in a Red Bull—early in the race until a popped tire handed the lead back to Nico Rosberg.
I hear it all the time: “How hard is it to get in a car and just shoot an awesome video?” That’s because the very best car videos make it look easy, like someone hopped in some amazing machine and went drifting all day long—simple as that. But video shoots are incredibly complicated, time-consuming efforts, and that…
Oh, Red Bull. Never change. Here are the four Red Bull and Scuderia Toro Rosso drivers in perhaps the best press photo of the year. Which beefcake from N*CARS is most worthy of a Tiger Beat centerfold? Please, caption away.
Is there anything cooler than Luke Huxham’s latest movie involving a Ferrari F40 with rally lights, a ski slope and some instant noodles by the campfire? No, there is not.
The last time an F1 mastermind made a car, we ended up with the McLaren F1. Now legendary Red Bull F1 designer Adrian Newey will make a road-going hypercar for Aston Martin.
Red Bull Racing has come up with their own “halo” solution for protecting Formula One drivers’ heads, and according to Motorsport.com, it’s gaining some support. Besides not looking like a giant flip-flop, Red Bull’s proposed solution has one support on each side of the driver’s head and a big, curved windshield.
Levi Lavallee is a bad man on a snowmobile. The X Games athlete is always looking for new ways to push the limits and new records to set. I don’t know who the genius is who greenlit him taking his antics into the city, but I think we all owe him a high five and a drink.
Matte finishes! If you thought you were rid of them in all their boring dullness in 2008, sorry. Without Infiniti to add purple highlights to this year’s Red Bull F1 car, the eXtReMe energy drink folks have opted for a plainer, duller livery rendered in the aftermarket’s terrible bro-finish of choice. It’s awful!
Remember that little aluminum skiff your grandpa used to take you fishing on? Turns out they go pretty fast with a modest engine upgrade and a few insane pilots.
Ferrari chairman and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne thinks a standalone Formula One team would be the best way to boost Alfa Romeo’s image, per Motorsport.com. Not a mere decal on the Ferrari car as they have now, but an entire Alfa team, likely powered by Ferrari power units.
The “Red Bull Air Force” is a real thing. Specifically; a team of lunatic aerial stunt athletes with an unlimited budget. Want to watch them try and outdo each other?
Just a few days ago we all enjoyed watching Dutch F1 racer Max Verstappen charge up Kitzbühel’s ski slopes and do donuts in the snow with his 800 horsepower race car. Austrian authorities were less apparently enthusiastic though, and want to fine Red Bull almost $33,000 over the stunt.
