Just last year, Honda Formula One engines were a mix of the biggest joke and the biggest mechanical plague in the sport. “Honda” was so synonymous with “bad” in F1 that you could practically swap the words out in a sentence. Now, Honda is the new engine supplier for F1’s third-best team, Red Bull Racing.
One of the purest joys in all of racing is when the race cars aren’t in competition and just get hooned like regular cars. Red Bull Racing was Hungary (get it? GET IT??? Like, Hungary “the country,” “hungry” the need for sustenance... you know what? I’m sorry. Jesus, I’m sorry) for donuts this week, so they let…
Here’s the Red Bull Formula One paint scheme for 2018, which looks a lot like the Red Bull F1 paint scheme for the past few years but with a big ol’ halo on top of it. It unfortunately won’t run that cool blue camo scheme we saw last week all year, but at least it won’t get a Honda engine like its development team.
Today Red Bull and Aston Martin unveiled their new Formula 1 car, the RB14. Decked out in very cool blue digital camo and sporting the Halo, this car might be a serious competitor for the 2018 F1 season. I quite like the look if I’m being honest.
I’ve never felt that that motorsports really belong in the Olympics. Motorsports and the Olympics are good enough at being endless controversy factories on their own without combining forces, thank you very much. That being said, I’d love to see a Formula One car hoon down the Olympic ski slopes between races, as Red…
If the Aston Martin Valkyrie wasn’t crazy enough, good news! Red Bull and Aston Martin are building a louder, faster, track-only model called the Valkyrie AMR Pro. The AMR Pro model sheds weight and tweaks everything to provide performance that Red Bull claims will rival an Formula One car or a top-class Le Mans…
It finally happened, you guys. Someone finally bested the dude who eats gross stuff at church camp in the Great Prank-Off Of Life Itself: Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen. The Red Bull Racing drivers have brought hijinks that wouldn’t be out of place in your tenth grade homeroom to their post-race obligations at…
While you were busy posing on top of airplanes with your dogs, I was studying the blade.
I know, I know: it looks like the Aston Martin is wearing lipstick, or is perhaps dressing up like a vampire for Halloween. But that’s nothing new, and the look is a lot more classy now than it was before.
You know those shows where the interviewer knows unbelievably personal details about the interviewee’s background? The first record they bought? Their first dog’s favorite afternoon snack? Here’s what happens when that goes terribly wrong.
Mark Webber played along in Belgium, but he apparently learned his lesson about the “shoey”—a celebration done by drinking out of a shoe. Winning Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo convinced several others on the Formula One Malaysian Grand Prix podium to do a shoey, but Mark’s reaction was the best.
So much work goes into each part of a Formula One car that it’s a little mind-boggling when you start to think about it. Even the mundane parts you rarely think about have to come from somewhere. Case in point: the life cycle of a seemingly ordinary suspension bolt.
If you head over to Red Bull Racing’s career page right now, you’d see a section labeled “AM-RB 001 Engineers,” and if you clicked on that, you’d be brought to a page where Red Bull is looking for engineers with experience in hybrid powertrains—not that we should be expecting anything else.
As surprising as it is, Lewis Hamilton’s Monaco Grand Prix win on Sunday was his first in Formula One since clinching the 2015 title at Circuit of The Americas in October. But that wasn’t the main story to come out of the race—rather, it was Red Bull Racing’s royal pit-stop screw up with pole sitter Daniel Ricciardo.
A Mercedes didn’t win the most recent Formula One race—neither of the cars even made it through the opening lap—and a Mercedes won’t sit on pole for this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix. Instead, Daniel Ricciardo took his first-career pole position with the Mercedes teammates right behind him.
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.
Infiniti and Red Bull Racing will discontinue their partnership at the end of the 2015 season, one year before their contract was supposed to end. While the F1 team will continue to use Renault engines, the new power units will wear TAG Heuer badges.
As if getting pwned by their own unreliable Renault power units all year long wasn’t enough, Red Bull sent its Formula One drivers to compete in some sumo wrestling ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix. Big surprise: Sumo Dude wins.
Hot on the heels of rumors about Aston Martin joining Red Bull Racing in a F1 partnership comes word that the team’s former rockstar designer Adrian Newey is working on a hypercar that could land in 2018.
