Red Bull team principal Christian Horner believes there will be plenty of new faces around now that a decision on the Honda engine has been made.
With the team set to take control of the Honda engines following the end of the 2021 season, Horner feels this is as good a time as any to make some recruitments.
“We get some very skilled people that will transfer as part of the agreement that we have with Honda,” Horner said.
“We need to establish, what we need, who we need and who’s available. Formula One is a people business, and whether that’s chassis or engine, it’s a matter of accumulating the right people getting them to work together as a team and empowering them and the powertrain side of the business will be no different to the chassis side.”
Horner was full of praise for what Honda has brought to Red Bull. He said he was looking forward to their final year together.
“What we’ve experienced with Honda has been, you know, a fantastic partnership and relationship,” Horner said.
“It’s a shame it comes to a premature end at the end of this year. We’ve had two successful and enjoyable seasons and we’re determined to have a competitive and enjoyable final season in Formula One.”
Horner went on to reiterate Red Bull’s commitment to Formula 1.
“Red Bull very much takes control of its own future and destiny by this move with a powertrain and the establishment of that company and that commitment,” stated Horner.
“It’s safeguarded the commitment of Red Bulls to Formula 1 for the foreseeable future.”
