Red Bull Racing – Helipad Burnout

As we know Infiniti Red Bull Racing won the 2013 Formula One World Constructors’ Championship, and their driver, Sebastian Vettel, won the World Drivers’ Championship for the fourth year in a row at last weekend’s Indian Grand Prix.

So, what’s a team that’s already sealed the championship but still has to go racing to do? The correct answer is park a Formula One car on the helipad of the fourth tallest hotel on the planet, some 1,000 feet in the air, and do some donuts, just to celebrate (and without the chance of getting fined).

Red Bull borrowed the helipad of the 1,053-foot Burj Al Arab hotel, in Dubai, and had former F1 driver David Coulthard lay down some rubber. The resulting video is not recommended if you’re afraid of heights. Scroll down for the full clip.
