From the moment Red Bull first turned a wheel in F1 it was always clear that if the ultimate goal of championship victories were to be reached it would only be done if the team invested in F1's most crucial assets - people and experience. Led by team principal Christian Horner, its first season represented a bright start and at the end of 2005 lured in respected designer Adrian Newey. Technical departments began restructuring putting in place systems which would yield benefits. From 2006 onwards, Red Bull took the next step forward with consistent podium-finishes. For 2009, Red Bull eventually developed a race-winning car and the following year saw the team realise its dreams with the squad securing its first constructors' title and Vettel taking the drivers' crown. A title double after just six seasons in the sport! The success provided the springboard for a dominant 2011 propelling to a second team title and Vettel to another crown and a host of new records, a feat repeated in a hard-fought 2012 season and topped off with nine wins in a row on the way to the fourth straight title in 2013. It started to struggle with the new V6 regulations introduced in 201 but that struggle had more to do with an uncompetitive Renault power unit rather than the chassis. Nevertheless, Red Bull has come a long way in a short time. Founded with the goal of doing things a bit differently, its four early titles are testament to its success in meeting that target. It's a team that cannot be ruled out.From the moment Red Bull first turned a wheel in F1 it was always clear that if the ultimate goal of championship victories were to be reached it would only be done if the team invested in F1's most crucial assets - people and experience.
