Red Bull F1 news and updates: The Austrian outfit made their official F1 debut back in 2005. However, the origin of the team itself can be traced back to 1997. At that time, they were known as the Stewart Racing team, a team owned by F1 legend, Sir Jackie Stewart. He sold the team to American company, Ford, who rebranded the team, Jaguar Racing. The iconic British manufacturer would race in the sport until the end of the 2004 season. In the following year, Red Bull took up the reins. Though they were, at best, a midfield team in their early days, in 2009, the dynamic shifted completely. The Red Bull F1 team’s current drivers for the 2019 season are, Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly. Gasly joined Red Bull F1 after spending his debut season with sister team, Toro Rosso. Red Bull On-track Achievements They had a fairly strong start to their debut season, when David Coulthard finished 4th in Australia. A year later, Coulthard bagged a maiden podium in 2006 at the Monaco Grand Prix. A few more intermittent podiums followed, until 2009. The first win came courtesy, Sebastian Vettel. That year, Red Bull amassed six wins and finished 2nd in the championship. Then came the magnum opus, four driver’s and constructor’s titles on the trot, all thanks to Sebastian Vettel.
