Special and one-off liveries are synonymous with Formula One. This time Oracle Red Bull Racing have teamed up with internationally acclaimed artist Mr Doodle to create a hand-drawn one-of-a-kind livery — The Doodle Bull — on the iconic RB14.
Imprinting his signature style by hand across the entire static show car, Mr Doodle left only one space blank. Inviting the Team’s drivers Sergio ‘Checo’ Perez and two-time world champion Max Verstappen to sign the rear-wing end plate alongside his own signature.
The timed online auction for this one-off collaboration will run for three weeks, from 3-24 February, hosted by The Auction Collective and in collaboration with Christie’s. A share of the proceeds from the sale of The Doodle Bull will go towards supporting the official charity of Oracle Red Bull Racing: Wings for Life.
About Wings for Life
Wings for Life is a not-for-profit globally recognised foundation for spinal cord research with one sole aim: to find a cure for spinal cord injury. Since inception, Wings for Life have funded 276 projects across 17 counties all over the world to help 679 leading experts, scientists and physicians carry out cutting-edge research and clinical trials.
Wings for Life groundbreaking work has enabled people like Steven Dowd to walk again. In 2016, Steven came off his bike and broke his neck and was left with no sensation or movement below his injury site. “Wings for Life were my absolute lifeline. Hand on heart, I would say, without the experimental intervention from Professor Papadopoulos and his team, funded by Wings for Life, I don’t think I’d have had the foundation to move forwards.”
To be partnering with Christie’s means Wings for Life are one step close in finding a cure for people like Steven.

RB14 | Oracle Red Bull Racing
The Team’s entry for the 2018 season, the RB14, brought Oracle Red Bull Racing four victories – including Daniel’s historic win at Monaco – 13 podiums and two pole positions. It collected a total of 419 points in the Constructors’ Championship, helping the Team to a third-place finish that season. The RB14 has a unique place in the Team’s history in that it was the first car to race with the now ubiquitous Halo. And this one is even more exceptional thanks to the creative talents of Sam Cox, otherwise known as Mr Doodle.
