More than 60,000 F1 fans lined the streets of our home town to see World Champion Sebastian Vettel, team-mate Mark Webber, David Coulthard, Christian Horner and Adrian Newey say thank you to our local support.

The world champions had not one but two Red Bull Racing cars scream up and down Midsummer Boulevard, and the F1 racers were joined by David Coulthard in our Nascar Showcar and stunt supremo Chris Pfeiffer provided the madcap, two-wheel entertainment.
The intention had been for Red Bull Racing to say thank you to not only the Factory staff, but also our local supporters.

Sebastian said: "Thanks to all the fans who came today, we wanted to put on a great show, so I hope they enjoyed it. It's a great way to finish the season."

And Mark similarly was pleased to be able to put on a show in a town close to his own base. He said: "I live locally too, so it was nice to give something back to the community. I know some of the roundabouts on the course from driving my road car, so it was something different to drive them in an F1 car! It was a nice atmosphere, the sun was shining and it was good for everyone to get close to the cars. It's a great thing that Red Bull has done to say thank you to the fans."
