Horner sees good things at Red Bull

2nd December 2019, 19:28 by Neil Foster

Team principal Christian Horner feels Red Bull will head into the winter break with confidence for next year's challenge.

The dust has now finally settled on the 2019 Formula 1 season, with Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes dominating once again.

Ferrari were second and Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen and Alexander Albon helped secure third spot for the Milton Keynes-based marque.

Verstappen finished second behind Hamilton in Sunday's season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, with Albon down in sixth spot.

There will doubtless be many rumours flying around about which drivers may swap teams in the off-season but Horner preferred to focus on his own team, and he sees good things in the future.

"It's always good to finish the year with donuts down the main straight, which our drivers are very good at, and I think it's been a great second half of the year for Formula 1," he said.

"For us, it's very much been a transitionary year with Honda but as a team we can be proud of our achievements, and we go into the winter with good confidence."
