Red Bull pit crew dressed as Star Wars characters

# 5 Red Bull is known to be an uber-geeky team. In 2005 when Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith was about to release, the pit crew dressed up as clones, complete with cool new helmets. Special guest George Lucas was delighted, to say the least.

# 4 Next year, Red Bull tied up to promote the WB film Superman Returns (2006). David Coulthard pulled a surprise maiden podium finish for the bulls and cheekily received his trophy draped in a Superman cape. Of course, he had to ask for Prince Albert's permission to wear it.

#3 Fernando Alonso is the only driver to win back-to-back races with different constructors - with Renault in 2006 and McLaren-Mercedes in 2007.

#2 Winner of the 2009 race, Jenson Button drove his Brawn GP car back to the pits instead of on the main straight with the other two podium finishers Rubens Barrichello and Kimi Raikkonen. He had to run around 600 meters to meet Prince Albert II at the rostrum.


#1 Mark Webber celebrated his victory in 2010 with a somersault into the pool becoming the first Aussie to win in the principality since his idol Jack Brabham in 1959. He repeated the act in 2012.
