Team History

Before Red Bull

In 1997 Paul Stewart, aided by his father Jackie and the Ford Motor Company, made the leap from F3000 to F1 as an entrant. Jonny Herbert won 1 race for the Stewart team before it was sold off to Ford who re-branded the cars as Jaguar.

Ford stuck with it through thick and thin (mainly thin) through to the end of 2004 before selling the team to Dietrich Mateschitz, who owns the Red Bull drinks brand, for $1 on the understanding he invested $400 million over 3 years

Red Bull Racing

With Christian Horner installed as team principal, McLaren refugee David Coulthard and Christian Klien as the drivers Red Bull went racing. Their first season was certainly more successful than Jaguar had managed, even with the same Cosworth power plant, with Coulthard managing a 4th place at the European Grand Prix and the team finishing 7th in the Constructors Championship.

Adrian Newey joined from McLaren as chief designer for 2006 and Red Bull swapped to Ferrari engines. Coulthard managed a podium at his "home" race in Monaco prompting Christian Horner to jump naked, other than wearing a red cape, into a swimming pool.

Christian Klien, who shared the car with Vitantonio Liuzzi in 2005 and Robert Doornbos in 2006, departed the team for 2007 and was replaced by Mark Webber. The RB3 was the first full "Newey" car and was coupled with a Renault motor. The car was very unreliable, suffering from a variety of different problems but Webber managed a podium at the European Grand Prix and the team finished 5th in the WCC.

Retaining the same engine and drivers for 2008 Red Bull slipped back to 7th in the WCC and again only managed a single podium, for Coulthard in Canada, but the reliability issues which plagued the car the previous season were mainly resolved.

2009 was Red Bull's break through year. With Coulthard having retired Webber was joined by Red Bull junior driver Sebastien Vettel. The new rules allowed Newey to design a car which challenged for both the Drivers and Constructors Championship. Webber won 2 races, Vettel 4 and the team climbed to 2nd in WCC taking 3 pole positions en-route.

In 2010 Red Bull justified Mateschitz's investment winning the Constructors title and Vettel the Drivers Championship. They won 9 races through the season, 5 for Vettel and 4 for Webber and took 10 poles. Webber led the title race for much of the season but it was the 23 year old Vettel who stole the title in the last race of the season and became the youngest Champion as a result.

2011 sees the team retain the same driver line up as 2010 and continue with Renault engine power in the new RB7 car.

Red Bull doesn't accept excuses, you either perform or you go, it would appear this one didn't want to go and there's an internal struggle for the crown, the king is dead, long live the winner, has anyone lost a horse?
 
Any truth in the rumour that a mysterious former European racing driver called Joseph Van Stapper is being looked at to take over from Horner? I've heard he comes with a strong reputation for being able to mentor young Dutch racing drivers.

i cant find anything about him on through google or social media. but it would make sense for red bull to hire someone dutch to please verstappen
 
the irony is the story broke out in the Dutch Telegraaf first which I found odd unless there is an ulterior motive

Regardless whether Horner is innocent or not even though he will be at the car launch tomorrow. The trust that was there was has been broken within the team. There will always be lingering doubts about Horner even if he survives, personally I think he is out of F1.

It speaks volumes no one else is defending Horner but off course they want to protect their own position and not be seen as an ally to him and get booted out.

I wonder how many more complaints or accusations will arise because of this against Horner
 
Most reports say ex employee, so was she sacked and complained or did she go and then complain, prelude to constructive dismissal? Perhaps RB are checking whether she has a case, it may well be a cheaper way to go, at the moment it is only Horner, and no mention of it being endemic in RB as yet.

Where does it say she was sacked ? How did the Dutch Telegraaf broke the story ?
 
He said this was rubbish though, and we all know Christian Horner would never tell an untruth.
its the budget cap that just makes me unable to take horner seriously in this matter.

because he came out strongly denying all allegations in singapore & he was ready to sue zak Brown for defamation & in texas he admits zak brown was telling the truth all along
