Red Bull Announce List of Partners Ahead of ’11 Season
February 2, 2011
A list of partners ahead of the 2011 Formula One season has been announced by the Red Bull Racing team which includes Total, Rauch, Pepe Jeans, Casio, Singha Beer, FXDD, Geox, Pirelli, Alpinestars, Platform Computing and Siemens.
The announcement was made at the launch of its 2011 challenger, the RB7, which was unveiled by 2010 World Champion Sebastian Vettel and his team-mate Mark Webber.
Christian Horner, Team Principal of Red Bull Racing, stated: “The team’s been very focused on RB7 over the last few months; Adrian didn’t release his drawings any earlier than normal, so the whole design group and production team have done a remarkable job to produce this car in the shortest possible time. It’s a long season, the longest in F1 history, and we have some great opponents, but we are very motivated and will be working hard to hold on to the two world titles.”
The team’s Chief Technical Officer, Adrian Newey added: “It’s always a special moment when a car runs for the first time. The big challenge for us this year was the reintroduction of the KERS system. It’s always a challenge to find solutions, which don’t compromise the aerodynamics of the car. This season, with McLaren, Ferrari and Mercedes all having KERS, we need to get it to work, simply for performance off the line.”
