Red Bull launches RB4 in Jerez
16 January 2008 – Red Bull Racing has unveiled its 2008 car, the RB4 outside the team's garage in Jerez, this morning. Drivers David Coulthard and Mark Webber were on hand to unveil the new car, the first that is entirely an Adrian Newey project for the team.
David Coulthard completed an installation lap early this morning. "It's great to see a new car come together," he commented. "Inevitably, a lot of parts were still arriving last night, so when I left for my bed it looked a bit bare, but this morning, there it was in all its glory! It looks super with lots of nice detail on it and given that it did its installation lap and came back to the garage, so far we have achieved all our targets! Now we have to build from there."
Team boss Christian Horner commented, "It's always a key moment to see a new car run for the first time," he said. "And particularly in the case of RB4, that first lap represents a monumental amount of work from the entire workforce. Over the last few weeks, all the departments have made Herculean efforts to get the car ready for this shakedown today."
