2008 F1 Season – Team Mates – Red Bull

Red Bull F1 LogoRed Bull is a team with probably the most experienced drivers line up on the grid (compare Red Bull with McLaren for example…). Here is the quick look at the Red Bull team mates, David Coulthad and Mark Webber.

David Coulthard – Great Britain (Scotland)
Born: 27 March 1971
In F1 since 1994, 1994 – 1995 – Williams, 1996 – 2004 McLaren, 2005 – 2008 Red Bull
Best Result: 2nd in 2001
Career wins: 13
Pole positions: 12
Podium Finishes: 61

DC is one of the most experienced drivers on the grid and an important part of the Red Bull team and not only as a driver. He managed to collect 52 points in the three season with Red Bull. This year with what finally looks like a competitive Red Bull car he should be able to score more, in theory. What may play against him is not so sharp qualifying. And with another 4 teams on similar performance level with Red Bull the qualifying results will be crucial for good race result. It will be big difference between starting as a midfield frontman from 6th or 7th and as a midfield backmarker down at 15th …

Mark Webber – Australia
Born: 27 August 1976
In F1 since 2002 with Minardi, 2003 – 2004 Jaguar, 2005 Williams, 2006 – 2008 Red Bull
Best Result: 10th in 2003, 2005
Career wins: 0
Pole positions: 0
Podium Finishes: 2

Mark Webber is still waiting for his maiden Formula 1 win. He had a shot at it last year in Japan, until Sebastian Vettel took him out. Red Bull still does not look like race winning car, but it looks like this year their car may actually be reliable. The very strong midfield and Webber’s usual strong qualifying performance (he outqualified Coulthard 15 times in 2007) may result in some podiums for him. Race win is not impossible, but to achieve that, he would need lots of luck on his side.

F1Wolf’s prediction for Red Bull drivers in 2008:
Their final point tally may be quite similar, but I see Webber with better chances to get to the podium this season. Coulthard hopefuly will not decapitate anybody this year.
