Red Bull Racing - Home run

60,00 spectators turned out in Milton Keynes on 10th December to see the Red Bull Racing 'Home Run".
Sebastian Vettel and seven time Grand Prix winner Mark Webber drove their F1 racing cars through a circuit in Milton Keynes. Christian Homer, team principal and chief technical officer Adrian Neway joined the drivers.
"It was something special to drive the car in Milton Keynes today in front of all the fans," Webber said in a statement. "The location was close to the factory and I live pretty locally too, so it was nice to give something back to the community. I know some of the roundabouts on the course from driving my road car, so it was something different to drive them in an F1 car."
Vettel added, "It's great to be here in Milton Keynes, which is where the cars are built and everyone from the factory works. It's nice to say thank you and to see all the fans from the area. It was good fun; we did some donuts and enjoyed ourselves out there. It's a great way to finish the season."
The event drew in industry favourites including Jack Humphrey, David Coulthard and Chris Pfeiffer.
"It's flattering to have so many people turn out to celebrate what we have achieved," Horner said. "Without the fans, there's no Formula One and no Red Bull, so it's good to give something back and celebrate our double world championship like this."
