If you have Sky then let him have your Sky ID and password for the Sky Go app on the iPad, he can watch it that way

After being a avid F1 fan , I find it boring and predictable , Horner makes me sick well done SEB bum licking his driver . I would love to see Raikkonen driving the RB or Hamilton .

Red Bull best car by a mile and won the title easy just boring as shit for the spectators . Next years changes best make it better or I wont bother turning on to watch it

Sorry to Sparky I realise you must work for them and good for you and the other 600 employees enjoy your bonus

I actually find RedBull and Vettle's performance quite inspirational....to win 4 consecutive championships and beat some of the biggest names in motor-racing so convincingly is might impressive. It goes to show 'history' and 'heritage' is pointless without progress, handwork, talent, and ambition. Good work I say, its hard to get to the top of your profession, even harder to stay there for long .

The way Vettle destroyed the field today was just amazing, from 17th to 1st in under half the race distance, whilst at the same time the other who tried to do the same were stuck battling for the minor places...the likes of Mercedes, McLearn, Ferrari should be ashamed they cannot come up with a car as good as the RedBull, all that history/heritage must count for something, after-all many people seem to believe Vettle has little skill so it must all be done to the car .

It is interesting that hardly any one in the UK moans about how Team Sky is dominating cycling....after all I'm sure the support of Team Sky had little to do with having two British winners of the Tour de France in the last 2 year .

Success in any field need to be celebrate, keep up the good work RedBull, cannot wait to hear what excuses Hamilton will come up with next year .

Sadly I have to agree that it has become boring. I have got into Moto GP over the last couple of years and no doubt that is where the action is....

Bring back the days off Senna vs Prost !.I read a article once it was based on money makes points when Ferrari spent the most they gathered the points same with Mclaren, Mercedes are spending huge sums and collecting points , I would love to know what RB spent on F1 say compared to Williams ,

600 + Employees at RB ? lets not kid our self what a waste off money , If they or any off the teams produced anything useful apart from a bit off boring Sunday after noon racing.

I would set a limit off 100m unless your business / team produced Cars like Ferrari/Mclaren

How about running the car in Pink to sponser Brest Cancer or the likes or Save the children ,Guide dog for the blind ,World health organisation.

Do something good for a change

Man Utd have 800 full time employees. It seems to be the case for any sporting team. There is far more people employed than you think.

The figures posted about budgets vary everywhere. Some people suggest Ferrari are the highest, some say RBR are. A few years ago Toyota were the highest.

I'm always baffled why so many companies are so willing to pump so much money into sport. Not just F1.

Clearly you do not know about our Wings for Life charity ?

http://www.wingsforlife.com/en/

Maybe have a look to see what others are doing before having a dig ?

Hi Sparky

Thanks for that !

Without taking a DIG how much do RB contribute to the Wings for Life charity .

I have had a quick look and it said if individuals or groups raise over 10k they can have a look around the factory.We all know how hard it is to raise money so this is very nice but when you are spending 100s off million on a team it falls into insignificance on the bigger picture


What I am suggesting is each team run the car say in pink for a race and pay the charity the 1m of vettel or Alonso or hamilton direct to a charity off there choice , even say just the last race off the season every team promote a charity off there choice and donate both drivers salaries and bonuses
