RED BULL RACING WINS 201 CONSTRUCTORS’ CHAMPIONSHIP
MR. MATESCHITZ: “It’s a dream of decades that has been realised today.”
Car 5 SEBASTIAN VETTEL, Finish Position: WINNER! Start Position: 2nd
“We are the 2010 Constructors’ Champions! Regards to everyone here and back in Milton Keynes, it’s their achievement – we are one team and they can be very, very proud of what they have accomplished today. It has been a pleasure for me so far this year to drive that car. We have had ups and downs and many have given us a hard time, sometimes right and sometimes not, but we are always on the edge trying to make the car quicker, which is so good. We are always pushing to get updates, even when they only offer a little bit extra. Everyone matters in this team and I’m proud of them and also of myself today – we had a straightforward race, no issues and we were able to control it. There are a busy few days before the next race, but I think back in Milton Keynes and here in Brazil, there will be a couple of drinks tonight.”
Car 6 MARK WEBBER, Finish Position: 2nd, Start Position: 3rd
“Today is a sensational day for the team – for everyone in Milton Keynes, in Red Bull and for all our suppliers – the list goes on and on. We have won the Constructors’ and done it with a dominant one-two finish after a tough weekend in Korea. So many people have worked so hard for this, Adrian Newey, Christian Horner, Peter Prodromou, Rob Marshall, the boys in the race shop, the race bays… the list is endless – they all know who they are and it’s a credit to all of them. We’ve had everything thrown at us this year – right-height systems, flexi wings – and at the end of the day we’ve won, which is a very big achievement. Looking to the Drivers’ Championship I took a few points off Fernando today, so it’s still all to play for in Abu Dhabi. The team’s philosophy is that we race and we will work to that. Seb deserved the win today – it was a close fight. Both of us need to finish ahead of Fernando in Abu Dhabi, so let’s see what happens there.”
CHRISTIAN HORNER, Team Principal:
“This is an unbelievable result. In six years this team has come from a team that no-one took seriously – that everyone thought was a party team – to the 2010 Formula One Constructors’ Champions. We have finished ahead of teams with far more experience and heritage than ourselves – we took them on and we won. Thanks to the tremendous dedication of every single team member, to the incredible support from Red Bull and to the vision and unfaltering commitment from Mr. Mateschitz. It’s a very proud day for everyone in the team and for everyone within Red Bull to have won the 2010 Formula One Constructors’ Championship – and to do it in such dominant style, with our fourth one-two finish of the season, is very special. We’ve assembled a great group whose collective commitment and effort has delivered this result. Six and half years ago Mr. Mateschitz had a vision and today we have fulfilled it, it is an unbelievable feeling.”
FABRICE LOM, Renault, Principal Engineer Track Support:
“A big, big wow – it’s a historic day for Red Bull Renault. We have won this first title for the team and it’s a big reward for all the hard work we have done. Congratulations to everyone at Red Bull, at the Renault factory in Viry-Chatillon, and to everybody in Mechachrome who have helped us to win this title. We now look to the Drivers’ Championship, but before that we need to enjoy ourselves and to celebrate, congratulations to everyone.”
RED BULL RACING RENEWS WITH RENAULT
Red Bull Racing is pleased to announce it has agreed a two-year extension to its current partnership with French engine manufacturer Renault.
In recognition of the renewed partnership, Red Bull Racing will feature greater Renault visibility starting from this weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix. The Renault logo will appear on the noses of both RB6s and its name will be on the visors of both Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber’s race helmets.
Christian Horner, Red Bull Racing Team Principal, said: “We’re pleased to announce this extension. We have always enjoyed a very straightforward relationship with Renault and they have supported us extremely fairly during the past four seasons, contributing to our thirteen grand prix victories so far. The relationship continues to evolve and we look forward to working with them during our 2011 Formula One World Championship campaign.”
