To celebrate winning the Formula One Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships for the fourth consecutive year, Infiniti Red Bull Racing ran one of its Formula One cars at one of the most recognized locations on earth.

Perched 210 metres above the sea, on a helipad 24 metres wide, Infiniti Red Bull Racing’s 750bhp Formula One car became the first to run on the Burj Al Arab helipad. Usually reserved for on-track use, the car was involved in a spectacular show of burning rubber and tire smoke, against a stunning backdrop of the Arabian Gulf, overlooking scenic views of Dubai’s impressive skyline.

Seconds after completing donuts in the car, David Coulthard stepped out of the cockpit and said: “That was a lot of fun. When Red Bull first suggested the idea to me I said ‘why not?’. I like getting involved with anything that pushes the boundaries and it’s what Red Bull stands for. I think this will produce fantastic, iconic shots in an amazing town and I’m really privileged to be part of it.”

We’re Still Trying To Beat Red Bull, Says Rosberg

Nico Rosberg says he expects to be challenging for victory in India, despite ’s recent dominance.

“Well, I’m here to do that; that’s for sure,” said the Mercedes driver. “And the last couple of races have not really gone to plan, a lot of bad luck, also. But, I have a very good car at the moment. I think the Red Bull is a bit quicker than us, but you never know. If we really get everything right on a weekend like here in India, then it’s possible to beat Mark (Webber) and Sebastian (Vettel) in that car. That’s what I’m here to do, so I’ll give it everything and we’ll see.”
