Everything is bigger in Texas – at least when Red Bull is involved.

Flashback to August, 2011, when David Coulthard drove a showcar across Austin, Texas, putting on a display of raw power and Texas-sized emotion.

Coulthard and the Red Bull crew ripped through Red McCombs’ ranch, did donuts in front of the Texas State Capitol building in Austin and became the first race car to drive on the , which held the inaugural F1 United States Grand Prix one year later.

Unfortunately, their success away from the track didn’t translate into a win at the first-ever , as former McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton pulled off a stunning performance to claim victory ahead of Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso.

Mark Webber retired from the race due to alternator issues.

Regardless of the results, the journey left us with stellar photos and an awe-inspiring we can all appreciate.

Kudos, Red Bull, kudos.
