Your Faces Win Races


Sunday's race, and double podium, was extra special given that you, our fans got to race around the track with us, as part of the Faces For Charity livery.

25,000 of you donated, uploaded and raced to victory at our local grand prix to raise money for Wings For Life to help find a cure for spinal injury.

But out of those 25,000 race faces, we did of course welcome Hazel Warner along for the ultimate ride. Hazel won the Faces For Charity prize draw to come and see her photo live in action on the RB8 liveries at Silverstone and to witness the race weekend through Red Bull Racing's eyes.

She brought along her friend Tina to eat breakfast in the Energy Station, watch the first practice session from inside our garage and took up grandstand seats throughout the whole weekend which just so happened to host a view of Mark overtaking Alonso to win the British Grand Prix 2012 yesterday.

We spoke to Hazel on Friday straight after her view of FP1. She said: "It was excellent, it's really hard to describe how I felt and it's amazing to see how much work is put into it, you don't appreciate that when you watch it on TV". Hazel went on to say the experience was everything she had expected "and much more."  

When asked what her first impressions were of the RB8 liveries, after they were revealed, Hazel said: "It looked a lot better than I expected it was going to - the pictures were so clear and the colours were so bright."

Brighter still given the 1 Million Euros raised for Wings For Life in the process and the fact that your faces brought us victory in Britain. And a further £2,000 was also raised at the Whittlebury Park Wings For Life campsite auction on Saturday evening.

The project was a collective effort and we'd like to thank everyone involved, but especially those who raced with us.
