Burj Al Arab helipad in Dubai

To celebrate winning the Formula One Drivers' and Constructors' Championships for the fourth consecutive year, we ran one of our Formula One cars at one of the most recognised locations on earth.

Perched 210 meters above the sea, on a helipad 24 metres wide, our 750bhp Formula One car became the first to run on the Burj Al Arab helipad in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Usually reserved for on-track use, the car was involved in a spectacular show of burning rubber and tyre smoke, against a stunning backdrop of the Arabian Gulf, overlooking scenic views of Dubai's impressive skyline.

Seconds after completing donuts in the car, DC stepped out of the cockpit and said:
"That was a lot of fun. When Red Bull first suggested the idea to me I said 'why not?'. I like getting involved with anything that pushes the boundaries and it's what Red Bull stands for. I think this will produce fantastic, iconic shots in an amazing town and I'm really privileged to be part of it."
