Red Bull and their former race driver David Coulthard will bring Formula One power to the Indian city of Mumbai this weekend when the Scot blasts his way across the spectacular new Bandra-Worli Sea Link. The recently opened bridge joins Bandra and the western suburbs of Mumbai with Worli and central Mumbai, cutting journey times of up to an hour down to just seven minutes.

Coulthard is likely to slash that to under a minute on Sunday, when he is expected to hit speeds of up to 320km/h - possibly followed by a few donuts - during an F1 demonstration run which will form the highlight of the ‘Red Bull Speed Link’ event, a five-day Formula One showcase by the energy drinks company.

“I am delighted to be coming to India and I’m looking forward to showing you what the Red Bull Racing Formula One team can do,” said Coulthard. “The Sea Link is going to be challenging and exciting course to drive down on and I’m looking forward to Red Bull Racing giving the city of Mumbai an F1 show like they have never seen before.”

The Red Bull event got underway on Wednesday, when the car Coulthard will use was assembled in public. Ahead of Sunday's run it will be showcased around Mumbai.
