Very nice. Quite instructive about race cars in general.

I guess RB can afford to do such nice videos.
Amazing how much money they have made selling that crap.

in an leading F1 team budget - thats a cheap video to make... id venture to say the team is pretty self sufficient over the past 5 years, and doesn't need much investment from the energy drink side.

"I really started paying attention to cars was when they came out with the Nissan Z, the first body. Then I seen the Cherokees, the old square ones, and I was like, “Wow, that’s cool.” Then I seen the Isuzu jeeps and I seen the Wranglers."

Every once in a while Jalopnik has some interesting stuff. There was an article a little while back about the economics of F1 teams. It's good to be a top team-- the TV money they share pays quite a bit of their annual budget. It's not profits from the vile brews that keep the team running.

Has there ever been such a huge involvement in top level sports as what these snake oil salesmen have done? Two F1 teams. Just about every action sport seems to have a RB team. I don't follow it but would not be surprised by a Red Bull women's curling team. And they would be champions.

5 hour energy. Mountain Dew. Monster. How have I ever accomplished anything in life without this stuff?


But yes OP thanks a neat vid I'll pass on to others.
