Video: The Red Bull Racing Story

At some point during the week or maybe even next week, a lot of you are probably going to be on vacation, so you’ll have time to watch something that’s definitely worth your 30 minutes.

This is the story of Red Bull Racing , the three-time Formula One constructor’s champion that’s also the team of one Sebastian Vettel, himself a three-time Formula One driver’s champion. With all the glory and accolades the team has had in the past three years, not a lot of people remember that the team was born in 2005 under some pretty interesting circumstances.

The lineage actually points all the way back to 1996 when three-time F1 world champion Sir Jackie Stewart signed a deal with Ford to enter F1 with Stewart Grand Prix being its factory team. From there, the team became Jaguar Racing in 1999 where it languished in mediocrity until 2004, the year Red Bull came into the picture before making its F1 debut in 2005.

And the rest, as we say, is history.

Watch the entire 30-minute documentary. It’s worth every minute of it.
