Horner knows Red Bull will not always wield the F1 scepter


Christian Horner is very proud of his Red Bull racers, but he has warned that the team’s F1 dominance will not last forever.

Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez were first and second over the finish line in Monza last weekend with Verstappen winning his tenth consecutive race – a new F1 record.

β€œIt was also the team’s 14th win of the season; something we never dreamed of in our wildest dreams. It is very difficult to win a Grand Prix, let alone 14 in a row,” said the Red Bull team boss.

Still, there is a time and a place for everything and Horner knows that the hourglass of such a stay-at-the-win adventure can suddenly run out.

“We are racing against strong opponents and we try not to get too far ahead of things. Someday someone is going to beat us; it is one of sport’s inevitabilities. We just have to make sure that it doesn’t happen in the foreseeable future.”

He also praised Verstappen for his commitment and professional approach.

β€œI wouldn’t say that Max was on his nerves in the run-up to the Monza race, but he was sharper than ever. One could clearly see that this is a special record and race for him.”
