It’s not everyday that you find aFormula One car loitering the streets of a busy metropolis. And if that’s unlikely, what are the chances that you’ll find the very same car making an impromptu pit stop – complete with all the histrionics that come with it?
Improbable for some, but not for Red Bull.
The Formula One team is at it again with their globetrotting exploits. We’ve seen them at the ice and on the beach, but now it looks like they’re trying to add ‘metropolitan city’ to the list. In this video, Mark Webber and some members of the Red Bull pit crew are in downtown London to do another promotional video for their 2010 RB6 by doing a pit stop right smack in front of the city’s Parliament Square.
These guys are doing all they can to drum up interest and support for their team and seeing as they’re in a neck-and-neck race with McLaren for the championship this year, they’re going to need all the support they can get. And who’s to say that stunts like this are counter-intuitive to the team’s real goal of winning the Driver’s and Constructor’s championships? Nobody said they shouldn’t have any fun, right? Or maybe their just pulling a Ferrari and testing their cars under the guise of a “promo video”?
