Red Bull win constructors’ title for fourth time

Mark Webber, Red Bull, Buddh International Circuit, 2013Red Bull have been confirmed as constructors’ championship for the fourth year in a row.

Sebastian Vettel’s victory in the Indian Grand Prix confirmed the team as world champions with three races to go. His victory was the tenth for Red Bull this year.

“To achieve four double world championships is the culmination of an enormous amount of dedication and commitment from the whole team,” sad team principal Christian Horner.

“It?s an enormous day for the team to have won its fourth consecutive constructors? world championship. Without the dedication and determination of all the staff from all of the departments throughout the company and from all of our partners and the backing of Dietrich Mateschitz and support of Red Bull, none of this would be possible.

“There?s going to be an awfully lot of happy people in Milton Keynes and Salzburg this evening. We?ve got three races to go and we?re just going to go for it.”

“I think it?s going to take quite a few days for this success to sink in and it?s important for the team to enjoy the moment,” he added, “we will be pushing all the way to the chequered flag in Brazil”.

  1. Sort of a shame to win a constructors title when one of the cars breaks down, but there’s no doubt RB deserve their title again.

    1. Would’ve been nice if both finished on the podium, especially in a 1-2 which it would have been for sure.

  2. Is it possible that Red Bull could surpass Lotus? McLaren? Williams? Ferrari is too far fetched though.

      @kingshark yes, Ferrari is far ahead, but remember they were for a long time (I think from 1969 to 1999) without a WCC. And also, Red Bull signed that agreement of the “long term teams” with plans to stay for a long future. Why wouldn’t they want to stay if they are doing so well all these years?
      I agree, Ferrari is far ahead, but also, in terms of being a real challenger for the WCC, they are far behind.

        It wasn’t that long. Don’t you mean from 1983 to 1998? Ferrari won the WCC in both 1982 and 1999.

          I confused it with the WDC

  3. YEAH!!! Merc overtook Ferrari!!!

  4. Happy for RB and all that but PLEASE let this be the last for a while :-)

  5. Not the perfect constructor’s win – it’s a shame Webber couldn’t join Vettel on the podium – but yet again, Red Bull are the best team. They have provided their drivers with the tools to win consistently, and you have to doff your caps to them: they’ve done an excellent job since 2010!

    1. @vettel1

      Lets hope the ‘excellent job’ ends next year ;-)

      1. To be frank I agree with you: I want to see Vettel having to fight in traffic a bit more often!

          @vettel1 Today’s strategy paid well for him, but I hope Ricciado gets a good car. Lately Webber had his car on fire twice, and abandoned today.

          1. @omarr-pepper one was collision though, so it’s only really two retirements in 4 races – still bad, but not incredibly awful.

            He’s had a bit worse luck this season but I don’t think it’s anything inherently down to the car he is driving.

          2. But:
            – it is in fact 3 retirements out of 4 races, This equals 75% failure, which is incredibly awful.
            – If your car breaks down it is in fact inherently down to the car you are driving = bad parts, mechanical work..?

        2. @gdewilde

          That’s not how statistics work…

          1. For the record, I do agree that the RB is a bit dangerously unreliable.

            @gdewilde it’s 3 retirements out of 8 (and Webber was hit in Korea, not his or his teams fault, would you say Button being hit by Bautgarner in Spa 2004 was his fault?) so 2/8 is “just” 25% failure. And it gets much different if we consider the total points possible to be got.

  6. Congratulations to Red Bull on their fourth straight world title, it is thoroughly deserved. They say winning is a habit and that a culture of success breeds more success, Red Bull are a perfect example of that. In everything they do they are 100% professional and they carry themselves like world champions, they are relentless, they are perfectionists and their success is no accident. Their success is in no way down to just one or two men, it is a collective effort from a team of people who seem to be determined to carry on dominating the sport. This is clear whenever you hear anything come out of the team. You have to respect that sort of drive, even if you don’t particularly like the team.
