Red Bull RB4 F1

Red Bull launched their 2008 challenger, the RB4 at the Jerez track. Even if the weather was not really kind, David Coulthard managed to complete an installation lap early this morning. Many of the parts arriver last night, so that evening the model looked rather bad but the morning though, things were a bit different, as it was ready to take over the world. All the details it contain made it look incredible. After the installation lap, the model arrived at the garage. Now, the next part is a bit difficult, but as well exciting. The first lap represents a great amount of work from the entire workforce, particularly in the case of the RB4. We have to admit these last few months have been exhausting, but the results indicate the fact that it was totally worth it. The new RB4 is now ready to thrill everyone around with its capabilities.

Just a twenty minute drive from Red Bull Racing’s Milton Keynes headquarters, the sun is shining brightly over a nice dry track at Silverstone Circuit. However, we chose to drive to the southern tip of Europe to launch our 2008 challenger, the RB4, at the Jerez track, where grey skies and rain are the order of the day. Despite the wet track, David Coulthard completed an installation lap early this morning. “It’s great to see a new car come together,” he commented. “Inevitably, a lot of parts were still arriving last night, so when I left for my bed it looked a bit bare, but this morning, there it was in all its glory! It looks super with lots of nice detail on it and given that it did its installation lap and came back to the garage, so far we have achieved all our targets! Now we have to build from there”.

Anxiously watching from the pit wall was team principal, Christian Horner: “It’s always a key moment to see a new car run for the first time,” he said. “And particularly in the case of RB4, that first lap represents a monumental amount of work from the entire workforce. Over the last few weeks, all the departments have made Herculean efforts to get the car ready for this shakedown today”.
