22 October 2015 – Red Bull's future may be uncertain but the squad will compete in its 200th race at this weekend's United States Grand Prix. GPUpdate.net charts Red Bull's journey across its decade of Formula 1 competition.
2005 – Midfield assurance after buying Jaguar
Having been a sponsor since the mid-1990s, Red Bull took over the Milton Keynes squad from Jaguar Racing, which in turn had brought the team from Stewart. The points flowed early on, with McLaren refugee David Coulthard fourth first time out in Australia, and again a few rounds later in Germany. Christian Klien also scored points in the sister car, which was briefly piloted by rookie Vitantonio Liuzzi. Red Bull finished seventh in the championship with 34 points.2006 – A podium but also problems
Coulthard donned a Superman cape to celebrate the team's first podium in Monaco but results elsewhere were few and far between. Coulthard scored points on only four other occasions as the RB2 was plagued by reliability issues and a lack of pace, while Klien collected just two points he was ousted in favour of Robert Doornbos. Red Bull again finished seventh in the championship, but only 16 points were amassed.2007 – Firmly in the midfield
The season began badly with a spate of retirements and non-finishes but Coulthard and new team-mate Mark Webber soon started scoring points, with the latter holding on for a podium at the Nürburgring. Webber was on course for a strong result in Japan prior to being eliminated by Toro Rosso's Sebastian Vettel, while a decent end to the year enabled Red Bull to finish fifth, though paradoxically not surpassing their 2005 points haul.2008 – Back to seventh
The RB4 was a competent midfield machine and Webber put it to good use, scoring points in half of the races and only failing to finish on three occasions. Coulthard took a podium in a crazy Canadian Grand Prix but elsewhere was error-prone and added only two points to the tally. Red Bull slipped to seventh place, behind junior team Toro Rosso, which claimed a victory courtesy of Vettel in Italy.2009 – Emergence as a front-runner
Red Bull's RB5 was a formidable machine and newly-promoted Vettel led a 1-2 in treacherous conditions in China. However, Jenson Button and Brawn stole a march early on with a display of dominance which left Red Bull trailing. A mid-season upgrade left Red Bull devastatingly quick at high-downforce circuits, while Webber claimed a maiden win in Germany. Vettel, and Red Bull, managed second in the respective championships.2010 – The start of supremacy
Red Bull's RB6 was exceptional through corners and left rivals Ferrari and McLaren with no response. However, reliability remained problematic, while tensions between Vettel and Webber boiled over after colliding while battling for victory in Turkey as the team adapted to being the benchmark. Red Bull won the Constructors' Championship at the penultimate race while a late-season surge from Vettel enabled him to win a four-way fight for the crown in Abu Dhabi.2011 – Vettel pulls clear
Formula 1 entered a new era with DRS and high-degrading Pirelli tyres but Vettel was dominant in the RB7 and wrapped up the title with four rounds remaining, finishing the year with 11 wins and 15 pole positions. Webber struggled to match his team-mate and his sole victory came at the finale in Brazil. Red Bull comfortably retained its Constructors' title, as it finished off of the podium only once in Abu Dhabi.2012 – Scraping it at the last race
The change to exhaust regulations initially left Red Bull on the back foot, while a sequence of minor errors and reliability problems restricted Vettel to only one win from the opening 13 races as Fernando Alonso opened up a huge lead. Red Bull made a developmental step and Vettel marched to four straight victories, clinching the crown in a dramatic rain-affected finale at Interlagos. Red Bull again clinched the Constructors' crown.2013 – Vettel dominance ends an era
Red Bull produced a strong car in the RB9 but felt that Pirelli's high-degrading tyres left the outfit unable to exploit its performance. A mid-season change at Silverstone, allied to Red Bull's own progress, resulted in emphatic form by the squad. Vettel won a total of 13 races and was unbeatable after the summer break as he took a record-breaking nine wins in a row, retaining the crown with an exuberant display in India. Webber was win-less but claimed podiums as Red Bull won a fourth Constructors' title.2014 – Out-muscled by Mercedes
The switch to 1.6 litre V6 power units enabled Mercedes to sweep to top spot but Red Bull recovered from a diabolical pre-season period to emerge as their nearest challengers. Red Bull pounced whenever Mercedes dropped the ball as new recruit Daniel Ricciardo won three races mid-season. Vettel was unhappy with the RB10 and was affected early on by reliability issues, though the team still managed second in the standings.2015 – Regression, rebuttals and Renault war
Red Bull was hopeful of Renault progress in 2015 but it slipped further behind, while the RB11 chassis was one of the weakest in recent years. Early races were marred by performance and reliability woes, though the RB11 was improved courtesy of a mid-season update. Podiums were achieved in Hungary and Singapore but elsewhere Mercedes and Ferrari has been ahead, with Red Bull also trailing Williams.
