In the 2006 season, they moved from the Cosworth engine to a Ferrari and finished it in seventh place again. 2007 was marked by the transition to the Renault engine and fifth place in the Cup of Designers. In 2008, the seventh again. But 2009 brought a breakthrough and second place in the team standings. In 2010, the Red Bull era of dominance begins. Formula 1 appreciates hard work, and the team rightfully earned that first place in the Constructors Cup that year. A total of four years: 10, 11, 12 and 13, Red Bull Racing was not equal here.
