Red Bull Brings Two Teams To The F1 Party

Sakhir/Bahrain (ots)

Hours from the start of this year's Formula
One action getting underway in Bahrain, Red Bull hosted a spectacular
Arabian Nights launch for Scuderia Toro Rosso's debut in the sport
and Red Bull Racing's second year in F1.
The world's press and a galaxy of VIP guests were invited to
attend the "1002nd Arabian Night" on a private island off the coast
of Bahrain. Oil lamps lit the way down a kilometre of carpet to the
venue where everything Arabia is famous for was on show. Dancers and
musicians entertained everyone as they feasted on delicious local
cuisine, prior to the action speeding up on stage. Film of the two
teams in action culminated in some atmospheric footage of all four
cars from both teams racing one another around the Paul Ricard
Circuit in the South of France.
Then, in a moment straight out of every cliché of Arabian culture,
a Red Bull Racing car and Scuderia Toro Rosso machine swept through
the air on hidden wires to arrive on stage as if on a Magic Carpet.
The new liveries reflect the fact that Red Bull's two teams are in
competition with one another but are very much part of the same
family. As the obligatory dry ice swirled around the cars, the six
drivers stepped out on stage to an enthusiastic welcome from the one
thousand strong crowd.
"What a fantastic venue," said David Coulthard. "I think the film
played before the cars swooped onto the stage conveyed the excitement
of F1. The livery looked fantastic and all six of us are keen to get
a good result this weekend."
"As usual with Red Bull, everything about the venue and party is
fantastic," added team-mate Christian Klien.
"I'm new here, but I've been to Red Bull parties before and this
lives up to their reputation," reckoned third driver, Robert
Doornbos. "The cars look great, so let's hope they go as quick as
they look."
The Scuderia Toro Rosso youngsters were equally impressed. "I love
a party," said the team's American rookie, Scott Speed. "After winter
testing mainly in Europe, I love the warm weather." Tonio Liuzzi is
an old hand at Red Bull parties so had a laid-back approach. "Hey,
it's Red Bull, of course it's an awesome party! But I'm going to bed
early now, as I have a job to do tomorrow." Neel Jani was
enthusiastic about his first official function with Toro Rosso. "Wow,
the car looks fantastic, but to be honest I'm more impressed by the
beautiful women here!"
The Bahrain event proved to be as spectacular as the Shanghai Red
Bull party that brought last year's Championship to an impressive
climax. But with work tomorrow, the event did not go on too long
after midnight, but was given the official seal of approval, by the
presence of FIA President Max Mosley and Bernie Ecclestone.
