Red Bull driver wins in Spain

The Red Bull Driver Search has not been a huge success in terms of results scored by the drivers involved but at the weekend Scott Speed finally chalked up the scheme's first major result with victory in the fourth round of the Formula Renault 2000 Eurocup championship in Valencia.

The Californian driver is now second in the championship but is still a long way behind Venezuela's Pastor Maldonado.

The victory will come as a big boost for the program which aims to find and assist young American drivers hoping to go to Formula 1. Another Red Bull driver Colin Fleming finished eighth in Spain.
