Who loves their Red bull? For me, a large can of Monster hits the spot but Red Bull no doubt sponsors some of the best extreme sporting people around the globe.
If you are into your Motocross, it’s only 8 days to go till the next round of the Red Bull Pro Nationals here in the UK. Last time it was held at Canada Heights mx track in Kent a few weeks back, the Sunday racing was rained off! That sucked for everyone I am sure. Looking at the weather now, this shouldn’t happen this time around. So book 4th and 5th August in your diaries.
On a global scale, this weekend is bringing us all another round of F1, this time in Hungary. While not leading the championship standings as he did last year, Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel will be keen to prove his abilities after a rule change that affects him and team mate Mark Webber. They have been told not to use settings which can give greater handling performance in corners, and could put them at an advantage over other teams.
The technicality is that the engineers were able to change how much torque the engine was giving out, which could affect the drivability of the car. The F1 governing body, the FIA, does not allow any use of traction control, and this was possibly having the same kind of effect and as such giving the team an advantage.
Sebastian did not win here last year, but will want to change that this year to gain points and keep him within sight of the top of the championship. Qualifying sessions take place Friday and Saturday, so it won’t be long before we find out who is going to take pole position for the race on Sunday.
Meanwhile, us Brits are doing pretty well in other sports, but by the looks of it, not so in the Formula one. Our Lewis Hamilton is does not appear to be confident about his chances of winning the Championship this year. Today he was quoted as saying,
“You can only take so many dents, especially when the guy leading has finished every race in the points”.
This is after failing to get a podium position in the last two races and slipping down the leader board.
Red bull Ice creams, now that’s an idea.
