Red Bull pits F1 vehicle towards RAAF Hornet fighter jet


Red Bull versus F-18

Red Bull Racing dominated the 2013 season in Formula A single, but it had an awful time in Australia last weekend with Sebastian Vettel retiring from the race and Daniel Ricciardo getting disqualified. Before the grand prix ended with this kind of a whimper for the team, even though, there was apparently some time to blow off steam, and they did so by lining Ricciardo in his Red Bull up against Royal Australian Air Force pilot Flight Lieutenant Michael Keightley in an F/A-18 Hornet for a drag race. Ricciardo and Keightley say that there is a lot of equivalent challenging work and perseverance to drive an F1 vehicle versus getting a fighter pilot.

Even with a little wheel spin, the Red Bull will get a excellent begin, but is it sufficient to beat the Hornet? Scroll down to see what wins in a heads-up drag race between the auto and the fighter plane.
