Daniel Ricciardo is an Australian racing driver who is currently competing in Formula One for Infiniti Red Bull Racing. After Mark Webber announced his retirement from Formula One, Ricciardo was confirmed as his replacement at Infiniti Red Bull Racing for 2014. In his first season with Red Bull, Ricciardo finished third in the championship with his first three Formula One wins, in Canada, Hungary, and Belgium.
The Red Bull RB11 is a Formula One racing car designed by Adrian Newey for Infiniti Red Bull Racing to compete in the 2015 Formula One season. It was driven by Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat. This is expected to be the last Red Bull car with engines badged as “Renault”. Although for 2016, the team will continue to use Renault engines – as it has done since 2007 – they will be badged as “TAG Heuer” to coincide with the new sponsor.
The RB11 was launched on 1 February 2015. During pre-season testing, the car ran a camouflage livery – akin to pre-production cars – before the team reverted to their normal livery for the race season.
Starting with the first picture, covering premaster approval and up to the finished model: the development of new models is closely observed. Each model, no matter what the scale, is a highly detailed replica of the actual thing where perfection is the goal. With historically correct paint and accurately replicated decals and markings.
Red Bull had a terrible start to the 2015 Formula One season with a lack of performance from its Renault power unit compounded by reliability problems. Red Bull and Renault both stated that they seemed to have ‘moved backwards’ in performance terms from the previous year. After the first four races, Red Bull still continued to struggle for reliability and performance, only scoring 23 points, the team’s worst start since the 2008 Formula One season. Red Bull faced more problems at the Bahrain Grand Prix, as Daniel Ricciardo’s Renault V6 engine gave up as he exited the final corner on the last lap, thus forcing him to move onto his fourth power unit at the Spanish Grand Prix. Under the current regulations, drivers are permitted to use only four engines per season.
Ultimately, the team slumped to 4th place in the Constructors’ Championship, with no wins for the first time since 2008. The team’s best place was 2nd place each for Kvyat at Hungary and Ricciardo at Singapore on the tracks which suited more to the aerodynamics of the car rather than outright pace. Overall, the chassis proved to be at most on par with the dominant Mercedes team, but the engine proved to be a letdown to the car’s performance.
