Christian Horner fires warning to Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes in social media post

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has taken to social media to vow that his “best is yet to come” as he looks to keep his team one step ahead of Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes. Horner began his Red Bull career 17 years ago and he has helped lead a brand new team to the very top of motorsport.

 

 

The Brit was tasked with helping an energy drink company battle with some long-standing car manufacturers such as Mercedes, Ferrari, Williams and McLaren.

 

 

And Horner has more than exceeded in his role with the first major success coming in 2010.Red Bull created a car that was unbeatable and Sebastian Vettel won four consecutive Drivers’ Championships.

F1 bosses introduced the turbo-hybrid era from 2013 and Mercedes returned to the top of the standings, scooping seven consecutive Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships. In the final year of those regulations, Red Bull were able to fight back as Horner help Verstappen win his maiden world title.

 

 

But Horner has recently dismissed those suggestions, insisting Verstappen will be able to battle Hamilton once again. “When Ferrari turn up with the fastest car and smash us out of the park at the first race then you’ll have to say that it probably did,” Horner joked at the end of the season.

“But I think that we’ve all known that big regulation changes are coming for 2022 and we’ve applied our resource accordingly. “I’m sure each team has done what they feel is right and it’s put pressure on the organisation.

 

 

“That’s where, I think, the team have been outstanding, because to keep a development rate on a new set of regulations and keep a focus on this year’s car has taken a monumental effort.

“The commitment shown by all of the team, throughout the team, has been phenomenal.”

  1. Hey Christian,
    When was the last time you talked to your boss, Mister Mateschitz ?

    I heard through the gravevine ;
    .
    Messrs. Dietrich Mateschitz, the owner of RBR, who has been investing in RBR, was not very happy with the situation.
    .
    For as this is the man who is proud to stand on his own 2 feet, with a clear and clean reputation.
    .
    His reputation is much LARGER than FIA or Formula 1 GP !… and it is now tarnished to both himself and to the BRAND he has been building for decades.
    .
    It could happen that he may pull out of GP, even before Sir HAM.
    .
    Maybe it’s time you put the question to yourself ! WHY ?
