Grand Prix racing – the team

Red Bull Racing pit team

Red Bull Racing is one of the most successful teams in recent Formula One® history, winning 52 Grand Prix races, four Drivers’ and four Constructors’ World Championships during the last 12 years. The extensive knowledge and expertise needed to succeed in Grand Prix Racing fits perfectly with the Mobil 1™ team’s approach: It’s about clear thinking, extensive research, and a combined effort of technology and creativity. We’re proud of our achievements, but are always looking for an edge.

ExxonMobil Sponsors Red Bull Racing and Team Principal Christian Horner

Christian Horner OBE

Team Principal

Christian's path to the top rung of the Formula One® management ladder began as a driver determined to race at the highest levels. Stints in Formula Renault, British F3 and Formula Two eventually led to him building his own Arden International race team into a junior motorsport powerhouse.

Three consecutive Formula One® World Drivers' and Team Championships brought him to the attention of Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz, and when the company took the radical step of setting up its own Formula One® team in 2005, it turned to Horner to run the operation.

"Mobil 1 has been an iconic brand in Formula One for more than 30 years, and our new partnership provides us with a unique opportunity to tap into ExxonMobil’s world-class expertise."

– Christian Horner, Team Principal of Red Bull Racing

Red Bull Racing Chief Techical Officer Adrian Newey

Adrian Newey OBE

Chief Technical Officer

Having taken both Williams and McLaren to the heady heights of multiple title wins in the 1990s, when Newey joined Red Bull Racing in 2006, his task was to help replicate that success. And he didn’t disappoint.

When a comprehensive aerodynamic rule change in 2009 presented designers with a blank canvas, Adrian and the team seized the opportunity and have since delivered four Formula One® Drivers’ Championships and four Formula One® Constructors’ Championships for Red Bull Racing.
