Christian Horner: Masterminding Red Bull’s Return To The Top | Beyond The Grid | F1 Official Podcast

It’s been a dramatic year for Red Bull Racing, from the titanic battle Max Verstappen fought with Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes for the 2021 title, to setting up their own power unit arm, before taking a commanding lead in both championships this season – with a flirtation with Porsche thrown in for good measure. Team boss Christian Horner tells host Tom Clarkson all about that incredible 2021 title fight from Red Bull’s perspective, including his thoughts on rival team boss Toto Wolff, and that intense Abu Dhabi season finale. He also reflects on whether Verstappen approaches racing Charles Leclerc differently to how he takes on Hamilton, what he makes of Daniel Ricciardo’s early McLaren exit, and why Red Bull decided now was the right time to set up their own engine division. Plus he reveals what happened to the proposed Porsche partnership, touches on some of the company’s non-F1 projects – including designing a submarine – as well as how it feels to have led the team back to the brink of championship glory once again. 0:00 – On Ricciardo’s early McLaren exit 4:42 – How Red Bull nailed the new regs 14:18 – The 2021 title showdown 20:58 – His rivalry with Toto Wolff 26:40 – Verstappen vs Hamilton 34:39 – Red Bull’s powertrains gamble 47:48 – Colton Herta’s F1 chances More episodes: podfollow.com/f1-beyond-the-grid For more F1® videos, visit https://www.Formula1.com Follow F1®: https://www.instagram.com/F1 https://www.facebook.com/Formula1/ https://www.twitter.com/F1 https://www.twitch.tv/formula1 https://www.tiktok.com/@f1 #F1
