Red Bull and Mr Doodle, otherwise known as Sam Cox, have collaborated to turn the Red Bull Formula 1 car of 2018 into a piece of art that, if you have some spare cash lying around, you can bid on and (presumably) hang on your wall if you succeed, all for a worthy cause.
The 2018 Red Bull RB14, brought Red Bull four victories – including Daniel Ricciardo’s historic win at Monaco – 13 podiums and two pole positions. It collected a total of 419 points in the Constructors’ Championship, helping the Team to a third-place finish that season.
But you won’t be getting that exact car but rather what Red Bull team boss Christian Horner termed a show car when announcing the project, during yesterday’s launch of their 2023 F1 challenger in New York.
Furthermore, the RB14 has a unique place in the Team’s history in that it was the first car to race with the now ubiquitous Halo. And this one is even more exceptional thanks to the creative talents of Sam Cox, otherwise known as Mr Doodle.
Cox, is a British artist who rose to fame in 2017 and has since doodled his entire house while taking the art world by storm and now turned his attention to Formula 1, after being invited to doodle the Oracle Red Bull Racing RB14.
Imprinting his signature style by hand across the entire static show car, Mr Doodle left only one space blank. Inviting the Team’s drivers Sergio ‘Checo’ Perez and two- time world champion Max Verstappen to sign the rear-wing endplate alongside his own signature.
The auction for this one-off collaboration will run for three weeks and the profits from the sale of the Doodle Bull will be supporting the official charity of Oracle Red Bull Racing: Wings for Life; 65% of the Net proceeds of the sale will be donated to Wings for Life UK Spinal Cord Research Foundation charity, which has been a cause for the team for over a decade.
