Christian Horner says that in 2014 Red Bull felt the same pain that Mercedes did in 2022, after the team’s run of domination was over.

Red Bull has dominated Formula 1 from 2010 until 2013. In that time the team picked up every drivers’ and constructors’ title.

However, that run was over when the turbo hybrid era began in 2014, and Mercedes started its unprecedented run of domination.

This run was definitely over in 2022, when Red Bull regained its place at the top of the standings. Christian Horner says he understands what the German team is going through now.

“We went through that pain,” the Briton told Sky Sports F1.

“In 2013, we finished that very dominant streak and in ’14 with the change in the [regulations], we were nowhere.

“We never lost belief, people’s heads dropped but you have to keep focused on a target.

“Many of the people that we have today are still with us from 2013, as many new people have joined the team as well.

“Everybody’s just kept focused on that, on that challenge, on that goal of getting back into a winning position.

“We did it last year, and this year we’ve really gone a step further and to get that constructors’ title back after a very long eight years.

“It’s testimony to all our hard work and dedication and belief that’s gone in,” Horner concluded.
