The Red Bull era (2010-13) yielded 4 titles for the Austrian team with Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber driving the cars designed by Adrian Newey. Austria was the fourth country to have a winning manufacturer - backed by Austrian billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz and led by ex-racing driver Helmut Marko.

Red Bull dominated the second half 2.4L V8 engine era which had more dependency on aerodynamics than engine power. For all the four title-winning years, Red Bull ran with Renault engines. The team traces its origins back to the Stewart Grand Prix that debuted in 1997. 

Owner Sir Jackie Stewart sold his team to the Ford in late 1999 and got rebranded to Jaguar, which was bought out by Mateschitz to form Red Bull named after the energy drinks company he owns. Based out of Milton Keynes, Red Bull is now one of the top 3 constructors in Formula 1.
