History of Red Bull Racing

The beginnings

The team’s direct predecessor is the Stewart Grand Prix, founded in 1997 by Jackie Stewart. In late 1999, he sold it to Ford Motor Company, which raced it as Jaguar Racing. Then in 2004, Ford decided to sell the unsuccessful but costly team. It was purchased by Dietrich Mateschitz, owner of the energy drink company Red Bull. The team was thus able to stand there at the start line at the 2005 Australian Grand Prix as the successor to Jaguar, now in the blue-silver colors of Red Bull energy drinks. Red Bull was not unfamiliar with the royal category of motorsport, as they had previously had their logo on Sauber, Arrows and predecessor Jaguar cars as sponsors. After starting his own team, Red Bull, of course, terminated its contract with Sauber (Arrows had already expired in 2002). The beverage company also appeared in the Formula-3000 race series and its successor, GP2, and has a European talent search program called Red Bull Junior Team. Later Formula One riders were also selected from the program; Enrique Bernoldi, Christian Klien, Patrick Friesacher, Vitantonio Liuzzi and Scott Speed ​​have already competed in the king category.

Scott Speed, one of the discoverers of Red Bull’s talent search program, was featured in the third car at the Canadian Grand Prix and the U.S. Grand Prix. The 2005 racing car, the Red Bull RB1, was built on the foundations of the already-paper Jaguar R6. The team used the weakest Cosworth engines and Michelin tires during the season. The car wore a blue-silver paint on Red Bull energy drinks. The season got off to a good start for the Guard, with Coulthard finishing fourth and Klien finishing seventh at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, earning 7 points in Red Bull Racing’s first race. Although no such good result was achieved this season, Coulthard took fourth place again in the clean competition at the European Grand Prix and Klien finished fifth in the season-ending Chinese Grand Prix. The team was consistently strong enough to score throughout the season, with David Coulthard being reborn with reality behind the wheel of a blue car after a failing year in 2004, scoring 24 points as in 2004 with McLaren.
