Red Bull went from being a new(ish) team to double world champions in just six years.

But their appetite for success hasn’t got in the way of them having some fun – including David Coulthard’s memorable trip to the Monaco podium in a Superman cape.

Look back at their six years in F1 in this picture gallery.

  1. Great Pictures Keith, been a Red Bull/ Jaguar fan since 2003 when Webber first joined the team. It’s great to see the team who competed hard, and played hard now not only take on the big teams but beat them. And although I’m a Webber fan, Vettel winning the championship was good to see as he was unlucky with engine problems but it was also a win for “fair, non- team orders racers”. Although I have no doubts Vettel was favoured by the team, at no point was Webber told “Vettel is faster than you” aka move out of the way. Red Bull Champions 2010 YEAH!!!!!!

  2. Thats a lot of history there. Great photos Keith, brought back a few memories. Strange to think that they only won their first race in 2009.

  3. An abject lesson to Toyota as to how to go about building a wining team???

    1. Rule no 1: Stay in the sport.

      1. Rule no 2: Hire Newey.

        1. Rule no 3: Hire decent drivers.

    Wow, you can really see the evolution of the cars. When Red Bull started in 2005, they looked ungainly and front-heavy; now in 2010, they really cut quite a profile.

    1. The RB5 was pretty unsightly though with it’s pointy needle nose. I agree though that the RB6 is a very handsome car.

      1. Sorry, its, not it’s. I hate it when I see that mistake and here I’ve gone and made the same mistake myself.

    2. The change I appreciate most in the cars was the elimination of wheel fairings this year! They really didn’t do a car any favors on the visual aspect.

  5. I remember Coulthard in his last race wore a helmet cam for us to get a view from the drivers perspective. It’s a shame it only last until turn one, and that nobody has tried it since.

    1. Massa had it in Ferrari pre season tests in 2009 and 2010.
      Bahrain 2009
      Fiorano 2010
      Fiorano 2010

      1. Oops, the third link should say Fiorano 2009.

        1. Mugello 2009 actually :)

    2. Coulthard crashing out at the first corner was one of the most cringeworthy – and most predictable – things I’ve ever seen in F1.

      1. haha so true. all that hype and he’s off first corner! so cringe yet so funny.

    3. Yeah, they should do away with the tower cams and put them in the helmets instead. Would’ve been frightening to see Webber’s Valencia crash from a helmet cam.

  6. I was most amazed by Star Wars imperial Troops suits for their pit stop crew in 2005 Monaco. Hilarious.

    1. I hope they do something like that again in 2011, wou;d have been awesome to see a Tron Red Bull car.

  7. The Suzuka 05 photo is of Klien, not Liuzzi.

  8. Its one of the things I like the most about Red Bull actually is that as serious and dedicated as they are they are happy to allow a lighter side to show and have a laugh. im with you though Invoke, helmet cams would be awesome.

      100% agree. Maybe it’s because they have their money source (sponsor) at the very heart of the team, but they do seem to have fun.

  9. God, I hope Horner was wearing something under that cape. Horrid!

      1. Haha that’s so 90’s

      2. “girls used to get me to autograph their bras or bare backs”


        1. “girls used to get me to autograph their bras or bare backs”

          Classy girls.

  10. Nice pics! It is not my favorite team but they deserved the titles. Newey simply build another brilliant car.

  11. Nice pics….It is my Favorite team and Newey is Awesome…..”Newey Gives u Wings”

    1. Newey Gives You WINS!!
