Vettel's Red Bull RB5

Here are some pictures I took of Vettel's RB5 last year. It was at a promotional event at a local Infinity dealer. It was a truly incredible experience to be able to get so close to a 4 time world champion's car. We were allowed to get as close as we wanted. I was even to touch the steering wheel, and I even got a quick photo of me kneeling next to it and resting my arm on the side pod!

I hope you guys enjoy these. I have a lot more, but these are all I can find at the moment as I have only stumbled upon these by accident.







My favorite



I was told by the owner of the dealership that the car was raced at Canada that year (2012), but this suggests that it was a 2009 car.



Vettel's seat. I have some more photos from inside the cockpit, but, unfortunately, can't find these either.

Some of that day's bloopers include a kid dropping a camera on the rear body work (luckily no damage) and I over heard a man's wife say, "Look honey, the tires are bald." Lol

I was, too, and, as far as I could tell, there wasn't anybody from the team there, either.
