Redbull RB7 video
Summer is here, and glad that the press conference was held on the non-sunset-view side of Taj Lands End. Kept us cool…
DC posing with the RB7.
Quite a chatty guy, entertained almost all questions from the media & enthusiasts. Hasn’t raced on the BIC F1 track in India, but hopes that the Formula 1 circus comes back to our country.

Diffusers that work. Unlike the faux stuff we see on road cars in our mass market.
Stand next to it and you will be surprised how low squatting it is.
Simulators to keep the visitors & media entertained.
Tyre choices. How many of you’ll are getting coffee table ideas?
Mobil 1 stand, just another marketing day.
No points for guessing what you could drink, but there were options within the family.
