The current Infiniti Red Bull team can trace its origins back the Jackie Stewart outfit in 1997. Stewart later sold his team to the Ford Motor Company in 1999. Ford rebranded the team Jaguar Racing. They experienced little subsequent over the next five years.
Ford sold the outfit to Red Bull in 2004 but Red Bull’s involvement in Formula One can be traced back further – to 1995, when they first sponsored the Sauber team.
Red Bull’s first year proper (2005) in Formula One was a massive success compared to the team under the previous owners. They were 6th in the Constructors Championship for most of the season helped in no small part by acquisition David Coulthard.
In a single season they amassed more points than Jaguar had in 2003 and 2004. Coulthard, after a poor 2003 and 2004 with McLaren, was a revelation.
