Horner coy over Red Bull future dominance

Horner is not expecting a seven-year monopoly over F1.

Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner has dismissed concerns over the F1 championship-leading team's recent dominance being extended over a number of seasons.

The Milton Keynes-based outfit has not lost a race during the campaign so far, with Max Verstappen now on a run of five victories in a row to create a 99-point lead over teammate Sergio Perez.

When Mercedes went on its run of dominance between 2014 and 2016 there were concerns over the dwindling audiences and lack of tickets being sold for races.

While F1's popularity is exceptionally higher, does Red Bull's dominance risk the same thing happening?

"That's not my job [to worry about], my job is to win," Horner told media, including RacingNews365.com.

"One thing that we know from this sport, is that things will converge and the most important thing to have convergence is stability."

Regulatory stability

While Red Bull has been the one constant at the front of the field, the form of other teams has fluctuated as they attempt to close the gap to the runaway leader and out-develop each other.

"Stability in the regulations will bring all of the teams much, much closer together," he added.

"You can see it's already starting to happen. It's not going to be another seven years of domination.

"The power units are fairly similar or pretty similar now, and the chassis have evolved much, much quicker than the engines.

"We can already see from the start of the season to now that things are already converging."
