10 Greatest F1 drivers for Red Bull are Mark Webber, Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo, Max Verstappen, Daniil Kvyat, Sergio Perez, Pierre Gasly, and more. 

After making a deal with Jaguar Racing and acquiring their entry, Red Bull Racing first came into existence.

It is much younger than F1's other big teams and they entered the racing game in 2005. Not only that but in less than 2 decades it has racked up some unbelievable achievements. 

Previously, the Jaguar Racing team started racing in Formula 1 in the year 2000. Even Though this team achieved some wins, a string of bad performances for the following few years saw Ford put up the Jaguar Racing team for sale.

This is the time when Red Bull Racing quickly grabbed the opportunity and got their place in F1. After successfully buying Jaguar Racing, they rebranded the team and named it Red Bull Racing. This is the history behind the most successful racing team in Formula 1. 

Furthermore, they started their operation in 2005 and it was led by former Jaguar Racing technical director Christian Horner. 

From this top 10 list of Formula 1 drivers for Red Bull, we have looked into the amount of success the racers achieved with Red Bull Racing.

  • Team Wins: 54 
  • First Race: 2015 Australian Grand Prix
  • Team Titles: 3 (2021, 2022, 2023)
  • Races With The Teams: 185 (23 Toro Rosso, 162 Red Bull)

Max Verstappen spent just one year in car racing before making his Formula 1 debut. His wins with Red Bull include some memorable moments like his first win for the team in the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix where he became the youngest driver ever to win a Formula 1 race at the age of 18 years old. 

The Red Bull Racing company gave him his Formula 1 debut in 2015 at the age of just 17. He quickly impressed with Toro Rosso and earned a graduation to the main squad for round five of the 2016 season.

Not only that but he replaced the Russian car racing driver Daniil Kvyat in 2016. 

This single season he took 10 wins from 32 races, including six consecutive wins which was enough to earn him the move up to F1. Because of that he made a position at Red Bull's sister team Toro Rosso in 2015 and became the youngest-ever Grand Prix driver. 

In his early car racing career, he was characterized by impressive speed, bold overtaking, the odd mistake, and some dubious conduct in wheel-to-wheel combat. 

2. Sebastian Vettel - 53 wins

  • Team Wins: 53
  • First Race: 2007 United States Grand Prix
  • Team Titles: 4 (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013)
  • Races With The Teams: 300 (113 Red Bull)
  • Number of pole positions: 57
  • Active Years: 2007-08 (Toro Rosso), 2009-14 (Red Bull)

Sebastian Vettel was a highly successful car racing driver who achieved big success while driving for Red Bull Racing in Formula 1. While his form in F1 slowed towards the end of his career, there was a time when he was unbeatable.

Vettel is the only driver on this list to have won for both Toro Rosso and its sister company Red Bull Racing. His win at a wet Italian GP in 2008 remains one of his most memorable performances.

Furthermore, his F1 career started in 2007 and in his first three years, he took nine podiums and five wins.

Over the next four years, he became the face of Formula 1, winning four consecutive championships and becoming the youngest world champion in the format. 

He held the record for the most wins with Red Bull Racing until Max Verstappen won the Miami GP in 2023 and equaled his record. Sebastian won four championships in those 38 wins. 

Vettel came out on top in a dramatic 4-way title fight in 2010 then dominated the following year, winning 11 of the 19 races. 

3. Mark Webber - 9 wins

  • Team Wins: 9 wins
  • First race: 2002 Australian Grand Prix
  • Team Titles: 0
  • Races With The Teams: 129
  • Active Years: 2007 - 2013

Mark Webber is a former Australian car racing driver who competed in Formula 1 from 2002 to 2013. He was a loyal Red Bull lieutenant over the 7 years he was with the team which he helped become a frontrunner.

His move to Red Bull in 2007 was something of a homecoming given his stint with the team in its Jaguar guise. He instantly established himself as the most important part of the team.

Moreover, Webber enjoyed a successful time beside his then-teammate Vettel in Red Bull Racing, winning 9 races and securing 15 pole positions during his 7 seasons with the team. 

Not only that but his most awaited breakthrough win came at the Nurburgring in 2009, the first of two wins that season. Mark came close to winning the world championship in 2010 after an occasionally fractious battle with Vettel.

He played a vital role in helping Red Bull Racing secure their first Constructors’ championship in 2010 and their subsequent titles in 2011, 2012, and 2013.

He retired from Formula 1 at the end of 2013 to move to sportscars.

4. Daniel Ricciardo - 7 wins

  • Team Wins: 7 wins
  • Team Titles: 0
  • Races With The Teams: 139 (39 Toro Rosso, 100 Red Bull)
  • Active Years: 2012-2013 (Toro Rosso), 2014-2018 (Red Bull)

After the retirement of Mark Webber in 2013, Red Bull Racing needed a new driver and teammate for Sebastian for the 2014 season. Daniel Ricciardo turned out to be the perfect driver for the need and joined Red Bull in 2014. 

Ricciardo joined the main squad for the start of the new turbo-hybrid era after showing his racing skill brilliance at Toro Rosso in 2012-13 and immediately put 4-time champion Vettel in the shade. 

Furthermore, he had a successful time with Red Bull Racing where he won seven races and secured three pole positions during his five seasons with the team.

Sebastian Vettel left after just one season as his teammate and for a short while Daniel looked the readymade successor the team sorely needed.

5. Sergio Perez - 5 wins

  • Team Wins: 5 wins
  • Team Titles: 0
  • Races With The Teams: 22
  • Active Years: 2021-present (Red Bull)

Sergio Perez is the most successful Mexican driver in the history of the sport. After trying both Gasly and Albon in the seat vacated by Ricciardo, Red Bull looked outside its own pool of drivers for 2021.

Perez was signed in an attempt to give Max Verstappen some support in his fight against Mercedes in the tournament. Moreover, he has won 6 Grand Prix races and scored 35 podium finishes.

He won his first Grand Prix driving for Racing Point at the 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix where he broke the record for the number of starts before a race win at 190. 

Not only that but he joined Verstappen in Red Bull as their second driver in 2021 and has strongly supported Max's 2021 and 2022 Championship winning campaigns, as well as helping Red Bull win the Constructors’ championship in 2022. 

6. Pierre Gasly - 2 wins

  • Team Wins: 2 wins
  • Team Titles: 0
  • Races With The Teams: 86 (74 Toro Rosso/AlphaTauri, 12 Red Bull)
  • Active Years: 2017-18 (Toro Rosso), 2019 (Red Bull), 2019-present (Toro Rosso/AlphaTauri)

Red Bull Racing has never seemed 100% convinced by Pierre Gasly but he was an integral part of Toro Rosso’s strong first year with Honda Power in 2018 and fully merited a call-up to the senior team in 2019 as Ricciardo’s replacement.

Pierre won the intra-team fight in 2018, nailed the days when the Toro Rosso was competitive, and earned a Red Bull seat when Ricciardo walked out.

Furthermore, he has been one of the most impressive performers in Formula 1. He scored a fine podium in the 2019 Brazilian GP and has led the line for AlphaTauri.

He would achieve another podium at the 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix by finishing third behind eventual race winners Pérez and Vettel.

7. Daniil Kvyat - 0 wins

  • Team Wins: 0 wins
  • Team Titles: 0
  • First Race: 2014 Australian Grand Prix
  • Best championship finish: 7th (2015)
  • Races With The Teams: 110 (89 Toro Rosso/AlphaTauri, 21 Red Bull)
  • Active Years: 2014 (Toro Rosso), 2015-16 (Red Bull), 2016-17 (Toro Rosso), 2019-20 (Toro Rosso/AlphaTauri)

Daniil Kvyat is a Russian professional car racing driver who works for Prema Racing in the 2023 FIA World Endurance Championship.

His promotion to Toro Rosso Racing in 2014 came to the surprise of many of his fans, as did his immediate elevation to Red Bull Racing in 2015 after a solid rookie season alongside Vergne. 

Moreover, Kvyat graduated to Formula 1 in 2014 after becoming GP3 champion. He did well enough alongside the experienced Jean-Eric Vergne to take the Red Bull seat vacated by Vettel in 2015.

He took another podium in the 2016 Chinese GP but already he was in trouble given Verstappen's rapid rise. Max replaced him for round five, something Kvyat struggled to process while back at Toro Rosso, not helped by the fact Verstappen won his first time out for Red Bull in the Spanish GP.

8. Alex Albon - 0 wins

  • Team Wins: 0 wins
  • Team Titles: 0
  • Races With The Teams: 38 (12 Toro Rosso, 26 Red Bull)
  • Active Years: 2019 (Toro Rosso), 2019-20 (Red Bull)

Albon was on the verge of an FE program when Daniel Ricciardo leaving Red Bull Racing triggered a shuffle that put Pierre Gasly alongside Max Verstappen and Albon into Toro Rosso as teammate to Daniil Kvyat.

In his early racing career, he raced in Formula 1 for Scuderia Toro Rosso and Red Bull Racing and in DTM for AF Corse.

Alex was promoted to open-wheel cars for the 2012 Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 season after becoming part of the Red Bull Junior Team. 

Moreover, he proved capable of bouncing back from crashes and showed flashes of brilliance including a drive to sixth place in the German GP. 

He was promoted to the Red Bull squad for the Belgian GP, just his 13th Formula 1 start. Although he too failed to get close to Max Verstappen, Alex did not get as mired in the midfield as Gasly and did enough to keep the drive for 2020.

9. David Coulthard - 0 wins

  • Team Wins: 0 wins

  • First Win: 1995 Portuguese Grand Prix
  • Last Win:  2003 Australian Grand Prix
  • Races With The Teams: 71
  • Active Years: 2005-08 (Red Bull)

David Coulthard is a British former racing driver from Scotland who later turned presenter and commentator

His Red Bull racing record is two podiums across four seasons and does not look impressive when compared to some on this list. But the 13-time GP winner was a very part of the team early days following Red Bull's purchase of the Jaguar squad.

David took a surprise fourth time out in the 2005 Australian GP, scored the first F1 podium at Monaco the following year, and outscored his various Red Bull teammates across 2005-07 including Mark Webber.

He played a big part in getting the team to the front but he remains a Red Bull ambassador to this day.

10. Christian Klien - 0 wins

  • Team Wins: 0 wins
  • Team Titles: 0
  • Races With The Teams: 51 (49 starts)
  • Active Years: 2008–2009, 2011, 2014
  • First Entry: 2004 Australian Grand Prix
  • Last Entry: 2010 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Christian Klien is an Austrian former Formula 1 racing driver. In total, he has scored 14 points in Formula 1 and he currently competes full-time in the GT World Challenge Europe for JP Motorsport.

While Red Bull Racing effectively inherited Klien from Jaguar, its sponsorship had facilitated his place on the team in the first place.

Firstly, the idea was for him to share the 2005 seat with Vitantonio Liuzzi but after splitting the first four weekends Red Bull Racing team gave it to Christian on a permanent basis.

Furthermore, he had his moments with a best result of fifth in China in 2005. But despite showing promise at times he was never able to deliver consistently and could not match the level of team leader David Coulthard.
