Horner reveals secret to Red Bull success: We've hit a different level

Red Bull broke a number of records on their way to a third title and sixth Constructors Championship in 2023. While Max Verstappen was responsible for much of their on track success, Team Principal Christian Horner believes the work done behind the scenes made the difference.

Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner has praised the work done by the outfit behind the scenes, after a dominant year in Formula 1.

The team managed to win every race in 2023 apart from the Singapore Grand Prix, which was taken by Ferrari's Carlos Sainz.

Max Verstappen achieved 12 pole positions alongside 19 victories, while Sergio Perez took two victories to take their total up to 21 wins. Red Bull also achieved a one-two in the Drivers' Championship for the first time in their 18-year history.

Horner: We've hit a different level

While Adrian Newey thought they would have a tough season, Horner believes the work done behind the scenes enabled them to achieve an unprecedented run of victories and break records.

"The standard that we've been able to hit, to win 21 out of 22 races, to have led with Max over 1,000 laps out of 1,300, to broken so many records," Horner told media, including RacingNews365.

"Max has hit yet another level. But I think the way that the team has operated across 22 different circuits, operationally, reliability wise, performance wise, everybody's done their part.

"All the men and women behind the scenes, back in Milton Keynes, all the operational staff, everybody has done their bit and contributed to what we've seen in what will surely go down as one of the or certainly currently the most dominant season's ever seen in Formula 1."
