Red Bull RB6 Announced for F1 2017


F1 2017 is seeing the return of classic Formula One cars, the first time since F1 2013. Following the 1988 McLaren MP4/4, 1992 Williams FW14B, and 2002 Ferrari F2002, the fourth car has been announced: the 2010 Red Bull RB6!

While it may seem like a weird choice for a “Classic Formula One Car”, due to the fact that it’s only 7 years old, but looking back, it is a solid choice. The RB6 was one of the moreĀ dominant cars in the V8 era, taking home 15/19 pole positions and 9/19 wins over the course of the 2010 Formula One Season. Despite the dominant track performance, the competition for the 2010 World Champion title was fierce. Vettel, fending off fierce competition from Fernando Alonso and Mark Webber, took home his first championship at 23 years old, earning the title of “Youngest Formula One Champion”. It was also the first manufacturer’s title for Red Bull Racing, with Vettel and his teammate, Mark Webber, finishing 1st and 3rd respectively.

The Red Bull RB6 will be released alongside the base game, along with the Williams FW14B and Ferrari F2002. The McLaren MP4/4 is available as a Pre-Order bonus (slightly disappointing, but that’s the way the world goes, I guess).
