Red Bull prepare to feel the force




They’ve already got ‘wings’ and now Formula One racing’s newest team also have ‘the force’ on their side - Red Bull have teamed up with the makers of the Star Wars films for the Monaco Grand Prix.

Revenge of the Sith, the sixth and final film in the Star Wars series, has just had its international premier at the famous Cannes Film Festival, which is taking place just a few kilometres down the coast from Monte Carlo.

To celebrate the release of the epic movie, Red Bull and the Star Wars creators will be staging a promotional partnership over the course of the Monaco race weekend, which will see the film’s director, George Lucas, as well as some of its stars, appearing as guests of the Austrian-owned team.

the car, is black .. with splashs of lava (ie from mustafa in ep3).. the rear spoiler has star wars written on it.. and the front has a darth vader helmet painted it on it...

.. but the best thing of all is that all the pit stop crew.. wear storm trooper helmets!!!!!


would of been hard to do the pit work.. "I can't see a thing in this helmet";)

They should have had Jabba start it by spitting something at a gong.

Hey, my dad saw the race yesterday. Their car looks sweet with all the Star Wars pictures on it, and the pit crews would look like Stormtrooper/Clonetroopers

The race was pretty heated, and I caught every second of it yesterday. Luckily, my personal favourite racer - Raikkonen won! (My favourite team being Mclaren/Mercedes)
