A profile of the Red Bull Formula 1 team

Red Bull Christian Horner and the team's HQ in Milton Keynes
Christian Horner secured another constructors' championship for Red Bull


"Red Bull were a class act in 2011. They came into the season as reigning drivers' and constructors' champions and actually upped their game.

"The car was reliable, the team worked effortlessly together and Sebastian Vettel drove the socks off the car.

"What team boss Christian Horner has does there is remarkable. He has achieved an impressive balance between technology, design, drivers and teamwork and that's why they've been so successful.

"We know that Red Bull comes out of the box very quickly at the start of the season and with the team being centred around design chief Adrian Newey's philosophy, you have to say they are going to start the season as favourites."


What is F1's biggest challenge?

To continue to reduce costs, whilst not detracting from the show.

Does F1 need road-car manufacturers?

F1 needs a balanced combination of independent teams and road-car manufacturers. However, it is vital that regulations prevent costs from spiralling out of control.
