Red Bull first launched this car at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain on 1st February 2011. Sebastian Vettel has the distinction of being the first driver to ever test this car.

The car wowed everyone with its speed and was the fastest at the Barcelona testing. Further, Vettel won the inaugural race of the season at Melbourne while Webber came fifth. Infact, the car managed to stay in the top five positions in 17 out of the 19 races. The only instances the car bowed out of the race was when Mark Webber crashed at the 2011 Italian Grand Prix and Sebestian Vettel retired from the 2011 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The car won the 2011 World Driver’s Championship in Japan, with the constructors win coming later at South Korea. This Formula One car will be remembered as one of the most dominant cars to ever race in the ultimate Formula racing.

The RB7 employed the controversial exhaust-blown diffuser which was later banned.
