Both Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber will drive Red Bull F1 cars on the streets of Milton Keynes next month to celebrate the team's back-to-back world championships.

Red Bull, which is based in Milton Keynes, took both the drivers' and constructors' championship for the second year in a row this season, and world champion Vettel and his team-mate Webber will perform a demo run on December 10 to mark the achievement.

"It's great news to be able to go ahead with this event in Milton Keynes with both drivers and two cars," team principal Christian Horner said. "It's been home for our factory since Red Bull entered Formula One in 2005 and we get excellent support from the city; it will be fantastic to be able to put on a show and give something back. I think most of the staff will be attending with their families, which I'm extremely pleased about.

"I'd like to thank the council for all their efforts and I'm looking forward to the event - it will be the first time we'll have two cars and both of our drivers at a running show car event, so it will be a great way to finish the year."

The show will take place along the full length of Midsummer Boulevard in Milton Keynes, between Centre MK (Saxon Gate) and MK Station (Grafton Gate). Team principal Christian Horner and chief technical officer Adrian Newey will also attend the run.
