Red Bull celebrate one title and wait for another

2:58 pm on 19 November 2012

Red Bull celebrated a Formula One first at the US Grand Prix, with the team clinching their third constructors' title in a row, even if another triple crown remains on hold for Sebastian Vettel.

They are the first team to win their first three championships consecutively and become only the fourth in the 62-year history of the sport - joining Ferrari, McLaren and Williams - to take the title three years in a row.

While the drivers' is the more glamorous and high-profile title, the constructors' dictates the paddock pecking order and also the size of bonuses for team staff - more than enough reason to pop some champagne.

Red Bull, a team bankrolled by the Austrian energy drink giant for whom the United States is their biggest market, took over the former Jaguar team and turned it into a world-beater.
