RedBull RB7 -A class of its own

RedBull RB7 is one of the best racing cars ever made,since joining REDBULL from MCLAREN Adrian Newey showed his full potential on RB5,the 2009 RedBull racer.Despite familiar reliability issues the RB5 won the last three of the 2009 season but it was too little too late to beat the might BRAWN BGP 001.RB6 was unarguably the car of the 2010 season which won both the constructors and drivers championship for RedBull.

The RB7 is just as the same as its predecessors its insanely fast .The 12 races on the calender so far have seen RedBull were in pole position for every single race,Sebastian Vettel with 7 wins to his credit  so far.It didn’t suffer any reliability issues as it has 100% finishing record so far this season.
