It’s been nearly five years since David Coulthard, Red Bull ambassador and 13-time Grand Prix winner, performed donuts on the Burj Al Arab helipad in Dubai and they’re at it again.
This time on a 700-foot high, 1000 Museum building in Miami, in efforts to promote the Formula 1 race in Austin, Texas this weekend.
The race car used was the double title-winning Aston Martin Red Bull Racing RB7, driven by Sebastian Vettel en route to winning the 2011 Driver’s title. Alongside Mark Webber, the duo even went on to clinch the Constructor’s title in the same year.
Getting the car up to the helipad was as challenging as the task of “serving donuts” itself; it had to be carefully craned up to the 63rd floor of the building in downtown Miami – with help of a 100-strong crew.
This, however, is not the first time the Red Bull team had successfully pulled off such a daring stunt. After clinching their “quadruple double”, winning the Driver’s and Constructor’s title for the fourth consecutive year (2010-2014), the team celebrated their remarkable feat by becoming the first to do donuts on the Burj Al Arab helipad.
