The Art of the Road – Formula 1 at Hangar-7

An exhibition of a very special kind of art is currently showing at Hangar-7: the high art of Formula 1 design. Marvel at the structure and internal life of the Red Bull racing cars from close quarters – from the very first model to the current, successful cars. All of the details that the cameras are unable to pick up when the race is shown on TV can be viewed here at your leisure. Take your time – after all, the world’s fastest racing cars probably won’t stand so still in front of you all that often.

After some mixed results, it remained to be seen in the first half of the season whether Infiniti Red Bull Racing would contest 2013 as successfully as the previous years.
However, the F1 Grand Prix in Spa marked the start of nine consecutive Grand Prix victories for Sebastian Vettel, which not only equalled the record but ultimately
secured him his fourth world title – along with the constructors' title for his team.
 
Mark Webber celebrated his 200th Grand Prix in Bahrain and was able to draw the curtain on his successful Formula 1 career with a podium place.

Having already won 4 titles - both the drivers' and the constructors' championship - in the two preceding years, things remained equally exciting for fans and drivers in 2012. With the constructors' title already in the bag after an up-and-down season, the drivers' championship was not decided until the final race in Brazil. Although the nose of the RB8 was pointing anywhere but the right direction after the start, ensuring that the rest of the race was highly exciting, Sebastian Vettel had the car where he needed it at the finish. 6th place sufficed for victory in the drivers' championship, only a few points ahead of the field.

Instead of just being there, Red Bull Racing fans were right at the heart of the Grand Prix at Silverstone – in support of the Wings for Life Foundation, Sebastian's and Mark's racing machines were adorned with a collage made up of thousands of fan photos.

The expectations for the 2011 Formula 1 season were high, the RB7 was ready to race, and the drivers and team were highly motivated. RBR managed to continue its success story for another year, with 12 Grand Prix victories and two retained titles: the World Drivers' Championship and the World Constructors' Championship. And the 18 out of 19 pole positions are also worth a mention.

Only in Korea were the RB7 drivers pipped to pole during qualifying (by Lewis Hamilton), but Sebastian Vettel eventually took the chequered flag!

Red Bull Racing RB6

Was Adrian Newey aware that he was designing a World Championship winning car? Who knows... all that matters is: In 2010, with the highly promising combination of two great drivers, the RB6 and the entire Red Bull Racing Team, it was possible to round off a hugely successful season in style by crossing the finish line with both the Constructors Championship and the Driver's Championship.

Closely followed by Mark Webber, Sebastian Vettel thereby became the youngest ever Formula One world champion – at the tender age of 23.

Red Bull Racing RB5

Like the RB4, the RB5 was also developed by Adrian Newey and Geoff Willis. Sebastian Vettel was signed up to join the team. He liked to give his cars names and the RB5 became known as “Kate’s dirty sister”. In it, Sebastian came runner-up in the drivers’ championship.

His team colleague Mark Webber took fourth place and Red Bull Racing finished second in the constructors’ championship.

The RB4 bears the signature of two excellent designers, Adrian Newey and Geoff Willis. After initial testing Red Bull Racing with drivers David Coulthard and Mark Webber is talked about as the strongest competitor to the established teams.

The season yielded the youngest world champion in Formula One history in the shape of Lewis Hamilton as well as the youngest pole setter and race winner with Sebastian Vettel’s victory in Monza in a Scuderia Toro Rosso.

The RB3 stands out with a thoroughbred Adrian Newey design and for the first time is equipped with a Renault engine.

The Special Edition of the RB3 is decorated with about 15,000 faces of enthusiastic Formula One fans. With each picture, a donation was made in 2007 to Wings for Life - a non-profit research foundation established to support and accelerate scientific progress and medical research to heal paraplegia caused by spinal cord injury (SCI).

David Coulthard and Christian Klien were the drivers in the RB2 for the 2006 season.

After Red Bull had taken over the Jaguar Racing team in November 2004 and contested its first season as the Red Bull Racing team and with the RB1, the main objective for the second season was to gain further ground with the same drivers. There were early signs of success when David Coulthard raced to third place in Monaco. At the age of 24, Fernando Alonso became the youngest driver to win the championship.

In the fifth edition of the F1 car from Scuderia Toro Rosso, Sébastien Buemi and Jaime Alguersuari netted a total of 13 points, thereby confirming the continuous improvement of Red Bull Racing’s sister team in the Formula 1 World Championship. Sébastien’s hotly contested 8th place in the Canadian Grand Prix was the team’s best result in 2010 and contributed to STR finishing the season with 9th place in the Constructors' Championship.

2008 saw the possibly closest title race in the history of Formula One. Lewis Hamilton finished ahead of Felipe Massa by just one point. But the drivers of Scuderia Toro Rosso also figured strongly. Sebastian Vettel not only started a race from pole position for the first time but also crossed the finishing line first at the Italian Grand Prix in Monza and thus recorded the first victory for the Red Bull team.

Following the takeover of the Red Bull Racing contract, Toro Rosso began to incorporate Ferrari engines in 2007. Drivers Vitantonio Liuzzi and Scott Speed derived everything they could from the 056 V8 engine and in doing so gained the respect of their colleagues that season.

In 2008, Sebastian Vettel drove to his and Toro Rosso’s first ever Grand Prix victory, making him the youngest Formula 1 driver in pole position and the youngest driver to ever win a Formula 1 race.

The Austrian sculptor and painter Jos Pirkner designed the livery for the Toro Rosso car in 2006. Despite having achieved only a few successes, the former Minardi team was an icon of Italian motor racing. The translation of the team name into Italian was therefore a statement of respect to the Italian roots of the racing team.

Pirkner first tried out his design on a remote-controlled car and then painted it onto a full-scale Formula One car. Knud Tiroch, one of Austria’s most well-known spray paint artists, had the honour of transferring the bull design in precise detail onto all the other cars and the team trucks.

2001 was a successful season for the Sauber team. Peter Sauber put the unknown newcomer Kimi Räikkönen behind the wheel and experienced the best year in the team’s history. Together with Nick Heidfeld, Räikkönen collected 21 world championship points, which meant fourth place in the constructors’ championship.

The 2000 season went extremely well. The drivers Mika Salo and Pedro Diniz had the C19 well under control and improved from race to race.

Michael Schumacher won the drivers’ championship for the third time. It was his first world championship title for the Ferrari team and the first drivers’ title won by Ferrari since 1979. Mika Salo took 11th place.

1999 was a year of excitement and change. For the first time, Bridgestone supplied the tyres for the Formula One team. Minor problems with pit stops were quickly remedied and Jean Alesi, in his second year with Sauber, and Pedro Diniz, replacing Johnny Herbert, established a steady midfield position.

One of the unforgettable moments of that season was without doubt Diniz’s spectacular rollover crash at the Nürburgring after an evasive manoeuvre.


Sauber Petronas C17

The car built in 1998 was driven by Johnny Herbert and Jean Alesi, who finished third in the Belgian Grand Prix. Sauber Petronas came sixth in the constructors’ championship with ten points.


Sauber Petronas C16

In 1995 and 1996, Sauber was the Ford works team; from 1997 onwards, Ferrari engines were used. The Sauber Petronas C16 was raced by several drivers in 1997. Originally, Johnny Herbert and Nicola Larini were team colleagues, but after five races Larini left and was replaced by Gianni Morbidelli. He broke his hand twice and was in turn replaced by newcomer Norberto Fontana. None of the three could match Johnny Herbert, however. He took third place in Hungary.

The C in the name of the Peter Sauber racing team conceals a secret of which many insiders are not even aware. It stands for his wife Christine.

Despite or perhaps because of the many further developments of the C14 during the first of ten F1 seasons of Red Bull together with Sauber Petronas, the team achieved its first podium place. The drivers in that season were Karl Wendlinger and Heinz-Harald Frentzen.
