Red Bull Racing Bibliography.
Red Bull Racing is an Austrian Formula One racing team based in Milton Keynes, England. It is one of two F1 teams owned by beverage company Red Bull GmbH, the other being Scuderia Toro Rosso. The team won 4 successive Constructors' Championship titles, in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013, becoming the first Austrian licensed team to win the title. The team also produced the quadruple world champion driver of 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013, Sebastian Vettel. The team is managed by Christian Horner. The team has used Renault engines since 2007, and has a contract to do so until 2016.] After two seasons of poor results Red Bull Racing announced the team will use TAG Heuer branded Renault engines starting from the 2016 season.
The current Red Bull team can trace its origins back to the Stewart Grand Prix outfit that made its debut in 1997. Jackie Stewart sold his team to the Ford Motor Company in 1999, and Ford made the decision to rebrand the team Jaguar Racing, with little success over the next five years.
The Jaguar Racing Formula One constructor and racing team was put up for sale in September 2004 when its owner, the Ford Motor Company, decided it could "no longer make a compelling business case for any of its brands to compete in F1". Red Bull, an energy drinks company, agreed its purchase of Jaguar Racing on the final day of the sale on 15 November 2004. BBC Sport reported that Ford asked bidders for a symbolic US$1 in return for a commitment to invest US$400 million in the team over 3 grand prix seasons. The team continued to have access to the Cosworth engine developed for their 2005 chassis, and the operation continued under the new title.
Christian Horner was installed as the new Team boss and lined up David Coulthard and Christian Klien to drive for the team. Red Bull Racing was not the start of Red Bull's involvement in Formula One, as they sponsored Sauber from 1995 to 2004. After setting up a F1 team of its own, Red Bull ended its long-term partnership with the Swiss team. The drinks company also runs a young drivers programme, Red Bull Junior Team, whereby Red Bull sponsors promising young drivers. Red Bull also sponsors many drivers and teams competing in the GP2 Series, Formula One's "feeder" series.
Red Bull's first year in Formula One was a massive success compared to their predecessors, Jaguar Racing. They were 7th in the Constructors Championship , only beaten from 6th by the fast-improving BAR Hondas at the end of the season. In a single season they amassed more points than Jaguar had in the whole of 2003 and 2004.
On 23 April 2005, the team announced a deal to use Ferrari engines in 2006. This coincided with a rule change mandating the use of V8 engines, Red Bull Racing continued to use Michelin tyres, rather than the Bridgestones used by Ferrari using the same engine. On 8 November 2005, Red Bull Racing poached Adrian Newey, the highly successful McLaren technical director, as their chief technical officer. This was the start of the development of their cars which eventually led to their dominance from 2010-2014. On 15 December 2005, the team's second car, the Red Bull RB2, hit the track for the first time. This was followed by the RB3 which was debuted in the 2007 and was Adrian Newey's first car, eventually leading to the RB5 in 2009 when Vettel finished second in the drivers championship prior to winning in the drivers championship in 2010 with the RB6.
Mark Webber Bibliography
Mark Webber made his F1 debut in 2002, scoring Minardi's first points in three years at his and Stoddart's home race. After his first season, Jaguar took him on as lead driver. During two years with the generally uncompetitive team, Webber qualified on the front two rows of the grid several times and outperformed his teammates. When Jaguar Racing was sold he moved onto Williams before rejoining the now named Red Bull Racing team in 2006. His first F1 win was with Red Bull at the 2009 German Grand Prix, which followed second places at the 2009 Chinese Grand Prix, 2009 Turkish Grand Prix and 2009 British Grand Prix. By the end of 2009, Webber had scored eight podiums, including another victory in Brazil. His eight podiums in 2009 compares to only two podiums in the first seven years of his career. He added ten more podiums in 2010, including victories in Spain, Monaco, Britain and Hungary. Webber finished the 2010 season in third place having led for a long period, losing out to teammate Sebastian Vettel in the final race of the season. Webber added another race victory in the 2011 Brazilian Grand Prix, as he once again finished third behind champion Vettel and runner-up Jenson Button. Webber partnered Vettel again in the 2012 season, outperforming him in the early season and looked to be a major title contender but fell away with no wins in the second half of the season after two in the Monaco and British Grand Prix. He finished the season in sixth position. Webber was also a long-term director of the Grand Prix Drivers' Association, the Formula One drivers' union. On 27 June 2013, Webber announced he would be retiring from Formula One at the end of the season, after his relationship with Vettel and the team deteriorated. He began to race for Porsche in 2014, on a long-term deal, racing LMP1 Sportscars in the FIA World Endurance Championship.
