Hundreds of pedestrians admired the demonstration team of Red Bull Racing in the middle of Manhattan as they performed a pit stop on a demo car. This took place on Fifth Avenue, a street famous for being a shopper’s paradise in NYC.

The Red Bull demonstration car had a V8 engine, famous for its deafening howl, a sound that F1 fans miss quite dearly, now that the V8 has been replaced by Hybrid V6 engines. After the pitstop, the car drove off and performed a few donuts as the spectators looked on in delight.

The pitstop wasn’t a quick one, and the team deliberately made it somewhat slow, so that people had a chance to take pictures of the whole process.

The case for Christian Horner’s team in the Championship

Both the drivers and the Constructors’ Championship title are being quite fiercely battled for, for the first time since Mercedes started dominating the Hybrid Era.

With only 6 races to go, it’s pretty much confirmed that the title fight will go down to the wire and the person who can hold on to their nerves till the end, while putting in the best performances, will be the victor.
