To celebrate winning the F1 Drivers' and Constructors' Championships for the fourth consecutive year, Red Bull Racing ran one of its F1 cars at one of the most recognised locations on earth...

Perched 210 metres above the sea, on a helipad 24 metres wide, Red Bull's 750bhp F1 car became the first to run on the Burj Al Arab helipad. Usually reserved for on-track use, the car was involved in a spectacular show of burning rubber and tyre smoke, against a stunning backdrop of the Arabian Gulf, overlooking scenic views of Dubai's impressive skyline.

Seconds after completing donuts in the car, David Coulthard stepped out of the cockpit and said: "That was a lot of fun. When Red Bull first suggested the idea to me I said 'why not?'. I like getting involved with anything that pushes the boundaries and it's what Red Bull stands for.

"I think this will produce fantastic, iconic shots in an amazing town and I'm really privileged to be part of it."
