The Red Bull RB1 is a Formula One racing car designed by Jaguar Racing for use in the 2005 season but with the Red Bull buyout of the team it was used by Red Bull Racing.

Scot David Coulthard drove for the entire season, with Austrian Christian Klien and Italian Vitantonio Liuzzi sharing the other car. Liuzzi raced in four of the rounds, with Klien racing in the other 15 rounds. The team had two test drivers: American Scott Speed and Swiss driver Neel Jani.

The car's engine was a Cosworth TJ2005 3.0 litres (183 cu in) V10. The team's main sponsor was Red Bull. The RB1 was the first car built by Red Bull Racing after the energy drinks manufacturer bought the Jaguar Racing team in 2004.

The RB1's best result was a fourth place finish on its debut at the 2005 Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne, and at the 2005 European Grand Prix held at the Nürburgring. Both results were achieved by David Coulthard. Christian Klien's best finish was fifth at the season finale in Shanghai. Vitantonio Liuzzi's best finish in the RB1 was eighth in his debut race, the 2005 San Marino Grand Prix at Imola.

The RB1's first race was the 2005 Australian Grand Prix and its final race was at the 2005 Chinese Grand Prix. The chassis was reused for the Toro Rosso STR1 in 2006.
