Red Bull adopt 'Superman' theme

Monaco GP - Red Bull - Preview
Red Bull is hoping that a red cape and Kryptonite can help its F1 team find form in Monaco this weekend. The energy drink-owned squad, formerly racing in the Jaguar/Ford guise, will continue the recent tradition of promoting a new movie in the famous Principality.
Last year, a Star Wars theme was adopted, which saw mechanics dressed as Storm Troopers while the car was dressed in a special livery.

In 2006, new Hollywood blockbuster 'Superman Returns' will get the Red Bull treatment, with the team currently putting the final touches on a spectacular adaptation to its huge motor home, which is floating in the Monte Carlo harbour.

The Energy Station's front entrance now resembles the headquarters of Clark Kent's 'Daily Planet' building.

Red Bull and Jaguar also promoted the 'Terminator 3' and 'Ocean's Twelve' movies.

Kevin Spacey, who acts in the Superman remake, is tipped to attend the race as a Red Bull guest.

Back on track, the team is chasing its first point since round three in Australia. Last time out in Spain, Christian Klien finished 13th with David Coulthard 15th. Tonio Liuzzi is the sister Toro Rosso camp finished in 14th splitting the two Red Bull regulars.
