Redbull champion Marc Marquez has shown his adventurous and wild side as he rode his RC213V up a ski slope.
The magnificent machine came fully accessorized with 483 metal spikes on its tires for a better grip enabling the drive train overcome even the most daunting terrains.
Well, this shouldn’t be much of a surprise as awesomeness is exactly what you expect when you combine, the might of MotoGp champion Marquez, the might of redbull, a ski slope and his Honda RC213V.
The resulting feat was a tremendously talented driver cruising his 260 hp beast through the difficult snow and ascending one of the most feared slopes in the world of skiing.
Marquez who had been preparing for the attempt was assisted during his preparation by Franky Zorn, an Austrian ice speedway legend who had fitted the 483 huge spikes to the RC213V’s tires. Marquez seemed to be very enthusiastic for the attempt as he admitted that it was going to be difficult to move up the slope but that was the fun of it!More
Despite a mistake by Max Verstappen, Red Bull driver, the Team Principal of the England based squad, Christian Horner remains positive about the outcome of the qualifying after they had to settle for the sixth place on the grid.
A stunning lap by Daniel Ricciardo, fellow Red Bull team mate as the chequered flag fell, was enough to hand him the third place on the grid. The final Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday would see the duo starting out on the Supersoft tyre, instead of the Ultrasoft that others within the top ten would be starting with.
“A great final lap by Daniel to find that half a tenth to move himself ahead of Kimi to get the best seat for tomorrow’s start,”
“It was a shame for Max because he was up on his lap but when he arrived at turn 11 he just lost the front axle and therefore the time that he had found was gone.
“Nonetheless starting third and sixth on the grid here for what’s bound to be an exciting start tomorrow is not a bad place to be.”More
For those who have been following the Red Bull racing team would see that their performances have been on the high.
It is a Formula One racing team that is based out of Milton Keynes in England. It is an Austrian team, one of the two teams that are owned by Red Bull, the beverage company. The other team that they own is Scuderia Toro Rosso. The team has won four consecutive titles in the Constructors’ Championship, which were in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. They are the first licensed team from Austria, who has won the title. Sebastian Vettel has been world champion quadruple times based on the company in the same years. More
With F1 participants trying hard to impress their drivers the Red Bull is not to be left behind either.
Hamilton has been reviewing the aero screen feature that has been added to the new race vehicle by Red Bull. It is supposed to enhance protection. Lewis Hamilton, however, would have liked the canopy design to be otherwise.
Fitments are coming forth. Red Bull fitted the screen to Daniel Ricciardo’s vehicle RB12. The fitment happened on Thursday. The trial of the vehicles with the screen will take place when practice begins on Friday for the Russian Grand Prix. Many do feel that the halo designed by Ferrari is not as good as the Red Bull’s screen. Hamilton, however, would have liked the design to be different. He feels that the cockpit needs to have an opening like that of a fighter jet in such case. Of course, Hamilton comes from the stable of Mercedes and hence, his critical review is expected. His feelings are that, the shield is like a riot shield that distorts the overall suave look of the Formula 1 vehicle. From other angles the vehicle has a cool look and the shield made of carbon fiber is definitely impressive. However, looks wise, it is cumbersome and would probably deter a rider’s ability to get out of a crash if it occurs. Fernando would be driving the vehicle and Hamilton was concerned about the convenience that the shield would provide him.More
Daniel Ricciardo has said that his Red Bull Racing team is a long way from challenging Mercedes, at least for the first half of the season with the drivability of the new Renault engine posing a very difficult challenge for the drivers.
The Australian was the only driver who managed to stand up to the duopoly of the two Mercedes cars of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg but he has admitted that those chances are bleak this season. He said that he tries not to have any expectations but the expectations change knowing that the Silver Arrows have two clear seconds on his car.
According to Ricciardo, the team just cannot expect to be on pole or fight for race wins at this time of the season, all things being equal. Speaking before the season opening Australian Grand Prix, the youngster said that considering how things have been for the Red Bull Racing team over the weekend, the qualifying was much better but the team still is a long way away from where they need and aspire to be.More
