Red Bull Racing celebrated its fourth consecutive F1 Drivers’ and Constructors’ World titles with a spectacular, and dangerous, stunt 1,000 feet above the Arabian Gulf on the helipad of the Burj al Arab Hotel. A small mistake by retired F1 driver David Coulthard could have seen his 750 hp race car launch into space. See how it turned out below in the video posted by Red Bull Racing earlier today.
By the way, our four-wheel motorsports fans will know that the young German Sebastian Vettel (now 26) took his fourth straight F1 Drivers’ title last weekend, and enters a very select group in history by doing so. Only Michael Schumacher, Jaun Manuel Fangio, and Alain Prost have four or more F1 titles, and only Schumacher and Fangio have achieved four in a row.
