Their Debut year was in 2005 at the Australian Grand Prix. Here the team raced with the Cosworth engine that was then being developed for the 2005 Chasis. The Red Bull Racing has a close and long lasting relationship with Ferrari,they used the ferrari V8 engines in 2006. However they will be using a Renault V8 engine in 2007. It is to be noted that RBR is here to stay and will not leave as it is one of four teams to sign the Concorde Agreement which comes into effect in 2008.

In the past two years in Racing they have never won a Race, or secured a pole position, their best was in 2006 finishing in 7th position with 16 points.
