Watch The First-Ever Formula One Pit Stop In Zero Gravity

Watch The First-Ever Formula One Pit Stop In Zero Gravity

Have you ever wondered what it would be like for a Formula One pit crew to take on a tire change in space? I know that I have, mostly just because I frequently wonder what it would the future of racing will be (hint: it is long-distance interplanetary racing). Red Bull Racing is ahead of the game—it’s already practicing its zero-gravity pit stops in the event that this very specific genre of...

Toro Rosso F1 Team Wants To Be Called AlphaTauri, Which Sucks

Toro Rosso F1 Team Wants To Be Called AlphaTauri, Which Sucks

Formula One team Toro Rosso has been on the grid since 2006 after Red Bull bought and rebranded Minardi. But that might not be the case moving forward. Toro Rosso has requested a name change for the 2020 season... to AlphaTauri. Which also happens to be the name of Red Bull’s ultra-expensive luxury clothing line.

The Toro Rosso experiment has proved pretty damn successful over the years....

Even Newly-Promoted Red Bull F1 Driver Thinks Red Bull Promotions Are 'Laughable'

Even Newly-Promoted Red Bull F1 Driver Thinks Red Bull Promotions Are 'Laughable'

The Red Bull Junior Program is pretty notorious for how damn brutal it can be, what with the whole ‘demoting drivers  mid-season ’ deal. It’s reached the point where it feels like a professional version of musical chairs, where Red Bull’s sponsored drivers just have to be happy with whatever seat they end up with. But at least they’re starting to realize it’s all kind of ridiculous.

Hamilton Comes Back From 20-Second Deficit To Beat Verstappen In Hungarian Grand Prix

Hamilton Comes Back From 20-Second Deficit To Beat Verstappen In Hungarian Grand Prix

With 21 laps to go in the Hungarian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton was 21 seconds behind. Max Verstappen had fought him off long enough that Mercedes realized their only way to victory was with an aggressive pit strategy. Hamilton had emerged from the pits with a huge lead to make up.

But with softer, newer tires on his Mercedes, he was able to chip away over a second per lap to end up on the tail...

This weekend’s Formula One German Grand Prix at Hockenheim might just have been one of the best races of the season —but with Sebastian Vettel’s comeback drive and Lewis Hamilton’s tragic weekend, you might have missed another big moment. Red Bull Racing set the world record for the...

Verstappen Reaffirms He's The Future While Vettel Has Brilliant Comeback At German Grand Prix

Verstappen Reaffirms He's The Future While Vettel Has Brilliant Comeback At German Grand Prix

With his second win in the last three races, Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen used the German Grand Prix to prove once again that he represents the next great era of Formula One. But while the young driver’s performance was impressive, Sebastian Vettel’s unbelievable climb from a 20th place start to a second-place finish stole the spotlight.

All in all, it was one of the best German GPs ever,...

Now Red Bull Might Be Suing Rich Energy

Now Red Bull Might Be Suing Rich Energy

Since it entered Formula One last year as the little-known sponsor of America’s team with a murky past , Rich Energy has been dedicated to taking on its sworn enemy, Red Bull, in a rather one-sided rivalry both on and off the track. But Red Bull is finally answering, it appears, with a claim of trademark infringement.

The Rich Energy Twitter account, which is full of random gems and...

Though it feels like most of the drama in Formula One as of late has revolved around an energy drink megalomaniac who sponsors a team but refuses to pay a $45,000 outstanding tab, this past weekend’s British Grand Prix was nonetheless a good show. And to top it off, the Red Bull F1 team managed a...

I'm Filing A Formal Request That This Never be Done Again

I'm Filing A Formal Request That This Never be Done Again

Are you the daredevil type? Would you take a little jelly bean with a tail up in the air and do flips in it until you were bored? That’s exactly what Red Bull pilot Aaron Fitzgerald did over the Hudson River in New York. Flips, rolls, nose dives, and other crazy shenanigans were accomplished with a great amount of luck and skill applied. The visuals are insane.

I’m going to confess right here...

The Mysterious Energy Drink Sponsoring America’s F1 Team Tastes Like Ass

The Mysterious Energy Drink Sponsoring America’s F1 Team Tastes Like Ass

A while back, Jalopnik’s own Alanis King and Elizabeth Blackstock looked in to Formula One’s strangest sponsor, Rich Energy . If you’re baffled as to how a come-out-of-nowhere energy drink that’s difficult to find (at best) can sponsor an F1 team, you’re not alone. Amid the facts and figures in that story, what stuck out to me is that Rich Energy is apparently available in the UK, yet the six...

This Is Exactly What You Should Do With a Surplus Red Bull Mini

This Is Exactly What You Should Do With a Surplus Red Bull Mini

The “safari” look is so hot right now and I couldn’t be happier. Every car looks cool with knobby tires, a roof basket and some extraneous lights. Including (especially?) an old Mini that outgrew its job with Red Bull and is enjoying a second life as a tiny overlander.

This car is on Craigslist right now, though alas CraigslistAdSaver.com doesn’t appear to be working at the moment so if you’re...

Red Bull Racing's New F1 Motorhome Is Nicer Than Every House I've Ever Been In

Red Bull Racing's New F1 Motorhome Is Nicer Than Every House I've Ever Been In

If you’ve ever wanted to witness an obscene display of wealth, look no further than Formula One. While, yes, we all know that the cars are expensive, we often forget about all the other shit that’s transported to the track—like, for example, Red Bull Racing’s absurd “motorhome” that looks more like an Alpine cabin than, uh, an actual motorhome.

Red Bull Racing has stepped up the game ahead of...

Dani Pedrosa Is The Retired Rider We Should All Want To Be

It’s hard to have regrets when you’re a retired legendary MotoGP rider, but the fact that Dani Pedrosa left the sport without a championship has to continue to weigh on him. After winning the 125cc championship and two 250cc championships all in a row Honda moved him up into MotoGP on a rocketship path to the top. After 13 seasons of almosts and what could have beens, Pedrosa retired at the...

Beat The Big City Traffic By Just Becoming A Human Meteor

Beat The Big City Traffic By Just Becoming A Human Meteor

Yesterday on Twitter a few people noticed a stream of light above the evening Los Angeles skyline. Some called it a UFO, others thought it was a meteor. Either way, it was seen all over the city flying down directly into downtown, some even thought it hit a building. In fact, it was just a trio of winged suit flyers (Jon DeVore, Mike Swanson, and Andy Farrington) shooting across LA to get up...

Why Red Bull Racing Is Threatening to Leave F1, Again

Why Red Bull Racing Is Threatening to Leave F1, Again

It seems like Red Bull Racing threatens to leave Formula One at least once a season. When things might not go its way, the team releases a lot of vague threats that they’ll ditch the series. So far, those threats haven’t culminated in anything serious—but Red Bull is back at it again before the 2019 season has even started.

So, what is it this time? Red Bull is threatening that Formula One...

Everyone Go Home, Red Bull's New Livery Is the Best on the 2019 F1 Grid

Formula One’s livery reveal season is upon us, and boy are things really starting to heat up. With testing taking place later this month, everyone is scrambling to show off their cool new outfits at the first day of school. But the teams that haven’t given us their first look at new threads might as well pack it up and go home, because Red Bull Racing is undoubtedly the coolest kid in class.

Honda Again Sets Goal to Become Only Second-Worst Engine Supplier in F1

Honda Again Sets Goal to Become Only Second-Worst Engine Supplier in F1

Goals are inherently aspirational. Kids want to go to the Olympics. Everyone wants to be the best, despite knowing only a select few ever are. Goals in Formula One, however, are completely within logical confines, even if it makes them sound the opposite of impressive. Just look at Honda, which wants to have the third-best engine in F1 by the start of the 2019 season.

There are only four...

Even Sith Lords Enjoy Formula One

Formula One’s world broadcast feed knows a Sith Lord when they see one. Darth Vader himself got a shout-out during the weather-halted Free Practice 2 session thanks to this mask-wearing Red Bull fan in the grandstands.

Were today’s sessions really red flagged because of clouds and smog preventing the medical helicopter from flying, or was someone being Force-choked for their inability to make...
