Surely each of you has heard about the Red Bull team and almost everyone knows how strong it is. Red Bull represents the strongest Formula 1 team of a whole generation.

How did they manage to achieve such results? We’ll figure it out together.

The very beginning for the Red Bull team in F1

The Austrian racing team is definitely a legendary team. Red Bull is a regular participant in the Formula 1 race. And for eight years of its existence, this team has gone through an amazing formation, turning from a completely ordinary team into the strongest rival in Formula 1.

The forerunner of the modern champion was the Jaguar team, the purchase of which cost Mateshets only one dollar. However, with one condition, after the purchase, it was necessary to invest four hundred million in the team over three years.

In the very first season, David Coulthard, Christian Kline and Vitantonio Liuzzi played for Red Bull. Already during the first season, the team managed to achieve high results and get into points. The best result was fifth place shown in China.

After buying the team under the orders of billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz, the progress was really sharp and fast. And there are all reasons for this because Red Bull switched from Cosworth engines to Ferrari, and a new technical director came to the team. It was the one who created championship cars for McLaren and Williams.

Sometimes the thirst for speed and luxury of sports cars is so lacking in real life. What to do for those for whom the maintenance of the car is a burden, but they want to try being inside of a supercar? The modern world provides a car rental option.

Cars for rent have a lot of advantages. You do not need to service a car for rent, you travel and move profitably, and also enjoy exactly the car that you like. Today you choose sports cars, tomorrow you rent supercars, and the day after tomorrow you drive SUVs. Freedom and benefits are about car rental services!

A truly grandiose era from 2010 until 2013

A truly large-scale progress and shift for the team occurred in 2009. Then Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel began to make up a couple of pilots. The German talented racing driver was gratifyingly fighting in the championship and made his team second. And a year later, Red Bull became the sole leader. Many believe that the technical director of the team created the best car of this year.

Then in Malaysia, the team again showed the championship. Now it was obvious that Red Bull was very determined to win. And so in 2010 and the next two years, despite the expectation of a recession, the team continued to be the leader. Sebastian Vettel became a three-time world champion, and Red Bull won the Constructors’ Cup for the third time in a row.

What is the main secret of the team’s success?

Perhaps you will think of the brilliant work of the technical director and his developments. And actually, you will be right, his work should not be underestimated. But the main secret of success still lies in the support of a team of young professionals. Red Bull relies on talent and is ready to support promising aspiring athletes.

The 2013 Grand Prix season was really good for the Red Bull racing team, the season was completely dominated by them. But the change in the technical regulations in 2014 was not at all convenient for Red Bull. Because of this, the team was displaced from the leadership position.

The 2015 season began uneasily for Red Bull. The team’s pilots had technical problems at the start of the season, but closer to the middle of the season, the mechanics managed to eliminate them. And the improvement in 2016 was significant. Red Bull team managed to take second place in the Constructors’ Championship, scoring 468 points

And now this year the Red Bull team retains its leadership position and is currently the strongest team! Go ahead, Red Bull! The further – the more!
