Red Bull Claims its First Constructors’ Championship Title
The LG-sponsored Red Bull Racing team has won the 2010 Formula 1 Constructors’ Championship following a one-two finish by its drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber at the Brazil Grand Prix. The win set off scenes of jubilation among the Red Bull Racing team, which claimed its first Constructors’ Championship just six years after joining Formula 1.
While the Constructors’ title was decided in Brazil, Fernando Alonso’s third-place finish means that the drivers’ championship is still up for grabs going into the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi. Ferrari’s Alonso remains in first place overall, with Webber and Vettel trailing him by 8 and 15 points, respectively.
