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.

In the same year he helped Red Bull win the team's first World Constructors' Championship. He followed up his first championship with three more titles, becoming the youngest double, triple and quadruple world champion in Formula One. The 2010 and 2012 titles were decided in the final round, in 2010 coming out on top over Fernando Alonso and Ferrari in a four-way title battle at Abu Dhabi, whilst in 2012 defeating Alonso and Ferrari again by three points. The 2011 and 2013 titles saw Vettel dominating the seasons and wrapping up the titles early.
Vettel left Red Bull Racing and ended his long-term association with the company after the 2014 season and signed a contract with Ferrari for 2015, after activating a clause to terminate his Red Bull contract early.
