Max Verstappen has backed Red Bull's decision to ax Pierre Gasly. "Of course, it's a pity for Pierre," the Dutchman told De Telegraaf newspaper. "But personally, I don't care who my teammate is." Verstappen's new teammate is Alex Albon, a British-born Thai driver who was promoted from the junior team Toro Rosso. Dr. Helmut Marko, the main decision-maker when it comes to Red Bull's drivers, told Auto Bild that Albon has had a "great debut season" so far. "He has squeezed everything from his car," he said. Gasly, on the other hand, "has problems in traffic because he loses places and doesn't like to overtake." "We had to react and give Albon the chance until the end of the season," Marko said. "Gasly takes over at Toro Rosso and then we will see who is next to Max next year." … [Read more...] about Max Verstappen supports Red Bull decision to demote teammate

Pierre Gasly has been unceremoniously dumped out of his Aston Martin Red Bull Racing F1 seat after failing to deliver in the opening 12 races of the 2019 Formula 1 season. Rookie Alex Albon has been promoted from Toro Rosso. Under pressure heading into the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend, the last race prior to the summer shutdown, Gasly knew that he needed to show what he was capable of behind the wheel. A season and career-equaling best performance of fourth at the British Grand Prix had given the team hope that the 23-year-old Frenchman was on an upward curve, but a mistake at the crazy German Grand Prix -- ironically running into the back of replacement Albon -- put him out of the race and back in the firing line. Having lacked any of the pace shown by former teammate Max Verstappen at the Hungaroring, Gasly was unable to help in preventing Lewis Hamilton from making a crucial and race-winning second stop as he was too far back. … [Read more...] about Pierre Gasly out, Alex Albon in at Red Bull Racing F1 team

Red Bull “Wings Team” Mini Cooper If you’re my age, you may have a few fond memories of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile making its way to your hometown or a nearby burg, replete with a seemingly endless supply of Wienermobile plastic whistles—which in the Sixties and Seventies passed for quality tchotchkes. The big fiberglass sausages on wheels were generally found stationed in grocery-store parking lots, where Mayer staff passed out coupons and whistles to a receptive audience. It was a simpler time. Seen here with spokesperson George Molchan as “Little Oscar,” the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile was once a common sight in grocery-store parking lots and at regional festivals and gatherings. What was the Volkswagen Golf Harlequin? While several Wienermobiles still roam the country stopping at grocery stores and the occasional local funfest, a much larger fleet of promotional vehicles has since usurped the big rolling sausages’ roll (fine, role) as the … [Read more...] about What Was The Red Bull Car?

Total volume will be 150 road cars, inclusive of all remaining prototypes and 25 track-only versions for puritans. The fortunate few will embrace their wheels from early 2019.
