Red Bull Formula1 Car driven by Mark Webber is on for Sale
|   Friday, November 21, 2014
The Australian racer Mark Webber had used a RB3 race car which is a Red Bull Formula One model in the 2007 racing series and this model is now listed to be sold in UK at 250,000 pounds. In dollars this amount is around $458,000.

Nigel Baskerville listed such type of cars which are going to be sold, in a British website during last days of last month. Baskerville said that this RB3 is one and only F1 car of Red Bull raced privately. Still it is not yet clear how the vehicle was owned by him.


He also cleared that the authenticity of ownerships of these cars are yet to be confirmed 100%. However, Baskerville is related with the history of Red Bull sponsored F1 cars over so many years. He has been there many times asking for RB3 spare parts or trying to purchase them from various sellers.

As per Baskerville, this listed F1 car has two chassis and it was driven in five starting races by F1 racer Mark Webber during 2007's Formula One series. Those races were run in Australia, Bahrain, Monaco, Malaysia and Spain.

During 2007 race series Webber finished his position at 13th and 10th in Australia and Malaysia race tracks respectively. For Spain, Bahrain and Monaco races he had to take retirement because of gearbox, Hydraulics and gearbox failed during the races. The Australian racer finished at 12th for whole season having 10 points under his bag.

This particular car is available to be bought as few parts or entire of the car. Baskerville has also decided to sale his RB3's spare parts which include many nose and wing configurations. Also there will be engine covers and floor replacements, headrests, body panels and wheels.

The RB3 from Red Bull was the first ever Formula One model designed by Designer Adrian Newey exclusively for Red Bull's racing and powered by a natural aspirated Renault V8 with 2.4-liter. However after it was designed by Newey, a contract was signed with Ferrari and it got transferred to a team called Toro Rosso.

The car was very responsible to score a lot for Mark Webber. He finished in top ten for a race and he was the fastest in pre-race in Barcelona test. Car's design resembles the past cars designs like the McLaren MP4-20 which was released in 2005. However, like McLaren it also showed problems in reliability and consistency many times.

Problems occurred during faulty brakes in pedals and jamming fuel flap. Later a seamless shifting gearbox was introduced to it which brought even more problems and the racers had to retire much quickly than expected such as in Monaco and Canada races.

The car showed its best when Mark Webber scored many points in 2007's Grand Prix held at Europe. He scored 7th both time in the US and Belgian. However the other racer of this car, Coulthard was more successful with this Red Bull Formula1 car who got fourth place in Japan races and got success in few other races too.
