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. In collaboration with Christie's.

The Doodle Bull
Hand-painted F1 Show Car, 160 x 200 x 530 cm.
The world of Formula 1 is used to blank canvasses, with each year’s car drawn from the ground up in a matter of months, but F1 World Champions Oracle Red Bull Racing have taken the concept a step further – by handing an entire car over to renowned artist Mr Doodle to create a unique piece of art.
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.
Profits from the sale of the Doodle Bull will be supporting the official charity of Oracle Red Bull Racing: Wings for Life. The not-for-profit globally recognised foundation for spinal cord research with one sole aim: to find a cure for spinal cord injury.
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.
