World Champ Red Bull Reveals 2013 Formula 1 Challenger

The Formula 1 World Constructor Champion for the past three seasons, Red Bull Racing has risen from a mid-marker team to a superpower in a relatively short time. Entering the 2013 season with the driving team of three-time Formula 1 driving champion Sebastian Vettel and the formidable Australian driver Mark Webber, the top-tier operation on the surface appears to merely have to defend their high spot on the podium. Conversely, Red Bull Racing will find their quest for simplicity will be among the most difficult tasks. As the team every other Formula 1 operation will be gunning for in 2013, Red Bull Racing became the first team on Sunday February 3rd to premiere the look of their competition machine.

For 2013, the effort to create a successor to the effective RB8 chassis has spawned the RB9. Designed to conform with new regulations set out by Formula 1's (FIA Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile) sanctioning body. Red Bull Racing's RB9 car will be heavier than the RB8 and sport more rigid front wings compared to last year's car in accordance with 2013 Formula 1 rules. The team's new RB9 race car incorporates many of the stylistic attributes of the 2012 car (Even the notorious stepped-nose front end is retained in a slightly subtler form).     

In the livery of the RB9, the most visually notable change is the increased presence of premium auto brand Infiniti. Wearing the Infiniti badging prominently on the side pods for 2013, the Formula 1 organization will be promoting itself as Infiniti Red Bull Racing as part of a four-year licensing partnership agreement announced in November. Japanese-based premium car name Infiniti is part of the Nissan-Renault company alliance. Red Bull Racing's engines have been supplied by Renault Sport since 2007.

Presenting nothing radical, Red Bull Racing's ability to isolate the winning formula in the highest echelons of motorsports is destined to make the team a force to be reckoned with again in 2013.
