In a recent announcement, the Red Bull Racing Team has declared that Christian Horner has re-signed a ‘multi-year’ deal with them, but was silent about the exact terms of the contract. The energy drink team made its debut in 2005 after taking over the Jaguar Team, and signed the Brit as their Team Principal. 


Horner’s motorsport career started in 1991 when he won a Formula Renault Scholarship and competed in the championship the following year with Manor Motorsport. The then British driver finished the season as a race winner and the highest placed rookie before moving up graduating to British Formula Three series. He continued racing in the series till 1996 before moving to British Formula Two and then up to Formula 3000. He started the Arden before he quit racing at the end of the 1998 season because of lack of funds.   


Horner has evolved from being perhaps one of the youngest Team Principals of the time when he joined the Red Bull team in 2005, to leading the blue and yellow outfit to its third consecutive Constructors’ and Drivers’ title in 2012. Red Bull will continue with Sebastian Vettel, Mark Webber and Christian Horner in 2013, now the task at hand would be to ensure that they retain their Technical Chief Adrian Newey as well. 


As the pre-season tests are all set to commence from Febrauary 5-8, the Milton Keynes team is all geared up to unveil their 2013 challenger RB8 just two days prior to the tests on February 3. Watch out for this space for a launch story.
