Sabitzer & Laimer meet the Red Bull DriftBrothers
Full speed ahead in the 'City of Iron'! Marcel Sabitzer and Konrad Laimer met up with the legendary DriftBrothers Elias and Joe Hountdondji at Ferropolis and were taken for a spin in 620 and 730 PS motors in between the huge excavators at the festival site.
RED BULL DRIFTBROTHERS:
Elias, a qualified air and space engineer, heads all of the nine-member DriftBrothers team's technical projects. Every chassis construction, design and car adjustment goes through Eli. Like his brother Joe, he has been involved in competitive drifting for over eight years.
Joe is one of the most successful drift pilots in Europe. He is repsonsible for planing and strategic decisions in the DriftBrothers team. A former basketball player in Germany's second division, the 36-year-old has been behind the steering wheel of his beloved Nissan 200SX - known as "Dark White" - since 2009, at least when he's not away working for BMW or tinkering in the garage. "Drifting is the best thing you can do in a car," says Joe. "You start driving, turn sideways on, and the rest it pure freedom and flow."

We want to inspire our fans
- "One of my most important mottos in life is ‘Trau dich, es zu tun’ - ‘To dare is to do’! It means that you have to be courageous, keep thinking about the future, and believe in the things that you want to achieve. This is an attitude that we also transfer to our players. We want to dream of success.We want to set ourselves ambitious goals and achieve them through hard work, but also through remaining calm and composed.
- This also includes admitting mistakes and drawing motivation from setbacks. You have to get back up after being knocked down. My path has always been marked by challenges both big and small in my job and in my private life. I want to be a role model and show our fans that you can overcome challenges and realise your own dreams.”

Our sporting path is clear. We have been playing young, talented players for many years to improve them and give them a chance to develop in the perfect environment.
- “We have grown really quickly as a club and have enjoyed constant success since 2009. Five years ago we were playing in the Bundesliga 2 and now we are back among the top 16 teams in Europe. We are proud of what we have achieved, but above all we are looking to the future. How can we improve and become even more efficient? What aims are we pursuing in the short, medium and long-term? Is it necessary to adjust those goals?Finding answers to those questions drives us on and everyone at RB Leipzig approaches the challenge with passion every single day. As an employer, it’s important to us that our co-workers develop and improve their skills so that everyone can reach their maximum potential. The “You can do anything’ slogan is therefore a firm part of our company. With this long-term campaign, we want to provide inspiration to all those who follow us.”
Sport & fitness as a free-time activity:
YOU CAN DO ANYTHING!
Perhaps my most important life motto is "To dare is to do". Be courageous, be forward thinking and believe in the things you want to achieve. This is the mindset we instill into our players. We want to dream of success. We want to set ambitious goals and achieve them through hard work and the necessary amount of composure.
