2015 struggles have strengthened Red Bull – Horner

1 Mins read

Christian Horner feels the tough 2015 Formula 1 season the Red Bull Racing squad has endured has brought to the team closer together as they head into 2016.

Team boss Horner saw his drivers secure only three podium finishes during the season – two for Daniel Ricciardo and one for Daniil Kvyat, but despite the relative lack of success in comparison to previous years, he feels the season has not been that bad.

“To be honest with you, it has been a tough year – but adversity sometimes brings a group closer together,” said Horner. “I feel the team is tighter and closer than it has ever been, so actually from a team perspective I don’t think it has been a bad year.

“We have been very strong on strategy. Our pitstops have been the best in the pitlane. We have out-developed others chassis wise, and we grabbed the three opportunities that might be available to us in Monaco, Hungary and Singapore. On two out of the three we got on second step of podium.

“As a team beneath it, when you drill down and look at how we have performed, we have done a very strong job. Certain things beyond our responsibility we cannot control, but you can only worry about the things that you can control.”
