Red Bull gives you wings? More like red bull gives you wins!!!! That should totally be the Red Bull Racing team’s slogan. Chances are that it already is and if it isn’t then it will be! If you’re wondering, Red Bull Racing is indeed owned by the very Red Bull beverage company. Red Bull Racing’s founder is none other than Dietrich Mateschitz himself. It has had successful drivers like Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen recently but most importantly the sole individual who assisted in its start being David Coulthard and all of the other hard working drivers following afterwards. Although it had become a racing team, Red Bull had and still is a long term sponsor that contributes a lot in the Formula One racing franchise. It had entered as a race team after jaguar stepped down in 2004. After that point, the race team gained immense success. Red Bull Racing quickly adjusted to the fast track and began to create their persona in the Formula One world.
Growing Business On and Off the Track
Not all racing teams are too ancient. In this case, metaphorically Red Bull is like a middle child in a family. It has come around in the mid 2000’s and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down business wise and on the grand Formula One track either. Ever since it’s entrance into the racing world, the Red Bull Racing team has won four constructors’ championship titles successfully in the years 2010, 2011, 2012 and even 2013. It’s thanks to Red Bull that Sebastian Vettel managed to become a world championship driver in those same years. As far back as 2007 Red Bull Racing has been provided engines by Renault and has shifted it to TAG Heuer-branded Renault engines for the past two years and counting.
Ultimate Achievement + Conclusion
Throughout all of those seasons one particular one should be mentioned here. That was in 2009 where the team claimed six astounding victories on course to second overall in the constructors’ standings events. Second place to 2009 comes in 2016 where after bringing together the Renault power unit and the RB12 chassis, the Red Bull team pushed through to become the biggest threat and only rival of the Mercedes for race wins. With that point established, there will be a lot more to see from Red Bull. Their success isn’t ending just yet. The future of Red Bull Racing’s is totally assured and other teams will have to watch out for it in the coming years for sure.
