Last weekend saw Red Bull Racing take on another double Showrun adventure as Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne drove the RB7 on the streets of Warsaw in Poland while our reserve driver and Team Podcast regular Sebastien Buemi put the RB6 through its paces at the Hungaroring in Hungary.
An amazing 65,000 spectators turned out to watch Jean-Eric on the Polish streets on Saturday as part of the Verva Street Racing event. Crowds gave a warm welcome to the team and cheered and waved each time JEV's car was pushed past them after each run. A Pit Party in the morning also meant fans could get up close to the cars and get photos and signatures from Jean-Eric and Mika Hakkinen.
Jean-Eric said: "I really liked Warsaw, there were a lot of people, a big crowd and it looked like a nice city, so I enjoyed myself. I was really impressed to see how big the event was and how many people were there just for one day - it really shows there are a lot of motorsport fans in Poland and it's always good to drive an F1 car in a city centre like Warsaw. On a race track you can' look at the people, so it was nice to see the crowd, to be able to wave to them and see them waving back"
Meanwhile Buemi was over in Hungary as part of the World Series by Renault event - performing two runs on Saturday and again Sunday in front of another 60,000-strong crowd. Red Bull Junior driver Antonio Felix da Costa was competing at the event and won his first World Series by Renault race there. To celebrate, he completed five laps in the RB6 followed by some crowd-pleasing do-nuts.
Buemi summed up his weekend: "I'm quite impressed by how many people were here this weekend. We are used to seeing big crowds for F1 races, but it's clear that Renault put on a great event every time they host the World Series. It's been a real pleasure to come here this weekend and show the F1 car to the crowds - it's always fun to do do-nuts and burnouts!"
