They’ve already got ‘wings’ and now Formula One racing’s newest team also have ‘the force’ on their side - Red Bull have teamed up with the makers of the Star Wars films for the Monaco Grand Prix.

Revenge of the Sith, the sixth and final film in the Star Wars series, has just had its international premier at the famous Cannes Film Festival, which is taking place just a few kilometres down the coast from Monte Carlo.

To celebrate the release of the epic movie, Red Bull and the Star Wars creators will be staging a promotional partnership over the course of the Monaco race weekend, which will see the film’s director, George Lucas, as well as some of its stars, appearing as guests of the Austrian-owned team.

Red Bull head to Monaco having scored at least a point in every round of the their debut season so far. They lie sixth in the standings on 14 points.
