Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner says his team is in “the best position” it’s been in since the big regulation change in 2014.

In 2019 Red Bull managed to take the fight to Mercedes in several races and now Horner says they are ready to seriously challenge the German team.

“I think we’re in the best position we’ve been in since the change in regulations at the end of 2013,” said Horner.

“Red Bull’s philosophy to invest in youth means we have emerging young talent in all areas of the business which is really starting to pay dividends and the team is on a charge.

“We need to come out of the blocks competitively next year, Mercedes are still the benchmark going into next year so we need to try and push them from the first race in order to take the challenge to them.

“There is a real buzz and anticipation in the factory at the moment, so we need to capitalise on that and build on the positive momentum from 2019.

“We’ve got continuity across all aspects for next year, with aerodynamic, engine and tyre regulations plus a stable driver line-up which enables us to take all the learnings from this year and apply them into next year.

“It’s less than 100 days until the Australian Grand Prix and the factory is working flat out to get the car prepared.”
