Horner hints at Red Bull challenge to Mercedes

Red Bull finished the 2020 Formula 1 season second in the constructors' standings, a distant 254 points behind Mercedes. However team principal Christian Horner believes the pieces are in place for a sustained push to the top.

Christian Horner is hopeful that the lessons Red Bull learned in 2020 will help the team push Mercedes for the title in 2021.

The Milton Keynes outfit claimed two victories last season, a far cry from the 13 put together by Lewis Hamilton and teammate Valtteri Bottas. However the team decided to continually upgrade their car throughout the season, something Mercedes opted against following the Belgian Grand Prix back in August.

As a result Horner believes that while Mercedes are the favourites heading into the 2021 campaign, Red Bull have what it takes to take the fight to Formula 1's top team.

"We've seen one team be totally dominant for the last seven years," Horner told Autosport magazine. "And with continuity going into this year of largely car and drivers [being the same], on the Mercedes side, you would expect them to be in a very strong position again.

"But I hope by using the lessons that we've learned from 2020, we can put a more sustained challenge to Mercedes, who will undoubtedly be incredibly strong and very much the favourites this year - particularly off the back of a car, which was arguably their best car of the hybrid era.

"That's going to be quite a challenge for us. But one that we're relishing."

Horner won't have to wait very long to see how Red Bull stack up with Mercedes as the start of the Formula 1 season inches closer, with teams and drivers set to take the grid on March 28 in Bahrain.
